Unknown generation Pentax 300mm f/4 lens at natcam.
Posted By: Auzzie-Phoenix, 03-14-2016, 08:12 PM

Spotted this while browsing natcam, price is $99.99 for a Pentax 300mm f/4 in EX grade condition... dunno what generation the thing is. I don't need a 300mm prime, so figured I'd let others know about it. Best bet is that it's most likely NOT a star designated lens, and is probably film era glass.

It's a Tak (SM = screw mount in their designation), so it's sharp and has lots of CA.

That's odd, normally they designate it as m42 for tak's.

Yeah, but not Natcam. I've had a discussion with them about it, because SM is so close to SMC.

$100/shipped for a Tak 300/4 is a super price. I recently sold mine and kinda miss it. But I've got a 200/3.5 and 400/5.6 and not much money.
