Some nice ones there. The A*300/2.8 -- hard to use (tripod only), hard to justify the price (it is more expensive now than 10 years ago) -- nevertheless an absolutely amazing lens. I sold mine to a member here that was gonna try it for astrophotography. I'd love to get a hold of the A*400/2.8 someday (usually about double the price of the 300) just to see how it is trying to take pictures with a glass anvil but until I am a member of the idle rich will never be able to never justify it.

Hey Steamloco76 - are you earning points/$ for these links? It seems to be tied to a site called "shareasales" ?

That's so PentaxForums gets the referral credit. It's usually done automatically when the link is provided.

The Tamron SP 400/4 is an excellent lens.

No. I have no idea how that is tied to a site other than KEH, I copied the link DIRECTLY from KEH. Maybe google did it.
I never use any of those gimmick “points” sites.

Love to have that A* 300/2.8 but Car insurance and county taxes are due soon..

Yes, the SP 400 is excellent. I had one and only sold it after getting a great deal on a DFA 150-450. The Tamrom SP 400 made a very useable 800/8 with the Tamron flat field 2X converter, conversely , my DFA 150-450 doesn’t even like my Pentax HD DA 1.4X.

This is the reason I purchased a used Sigma 500mm f/4.5 DG EX and DG EX 1.4x recently when one came up at a reasonable price. Not had a chance to try them out properly yet but hoping the IQ is better than the 150-450mm and Pentax 1.4x on the K-1.

Thanks for posting the links. I didn't snag any of the fine lenses, but did find one interesting less expensive one and one UG for almost nothing that I can use for parts to fix one of my lenses. So, thanks for the WIN !
