Latest Review Posted Tele-Takumar/Super-Multi-Coated Takumar 400mm F5.6
If you are looking for an extreme telephoto lens, and don't mind a max aperture of 1/5.6, then this lens might be a good option for you.

1. Sharp.
2. Built-in extendable lens hood.
3. Built-in tripod mount (you'll need it).
4. Doubles as a big stick, in case someone tries to take your Limited lenses.

1. Heavy. It weighs more than a newborn infant, but doesn't cost as much.
2. Long focussing throw ring; not recommended for speedy action or tracking shots.
3. Max aperture of f/5.6. This beast needs a lot of light.
4. Closest focus distance is 8 meters!

Overall: For the money this is a great lens if you need something in the 400mm range. However, you might want to consider the Pentax-A version instead since its closest focussing distance is 5m closer.
