Latest Review Posted SMC Pentax-FA* 600mm F4 ED [IF]
I have had this lens for nearly a year now and just need more time to get out and use it! An expensive buy maybe, but that aside, it is a great lens. Initial problems were finding a tripod, a head and a suitable bag to transport it in.
A Benbow tripod solved the stability/weight problem, topped with a Wimberley Mk2 head. As I am sure everyone is aware, the Wimberley is a great piece of kit in it's own right. Despite it's weight, the lens just floats when mounted on the Wimberley head. Rather than drag the metal case around to protect the lens, I invested in a Kinesis cordura nylon long lens case with belt and shoulder harness. The bag allows me to transport the lens with camera body attached (K10D) and not risk damage to the paint finish.
Both Wimberley and Kinesis were great by the way with regards to advice with requirements for this lens, even though neither company listed the lens in their brochures at the time. A plus was the purchase of the drop in polarising filter to further enhance the capabilities of this lens.:D
