Latest Review Posted SMC Pentax 67 / SMC Pentax-6x7 165mm F2.8
I used this lens (almost) exclusively on my uncle's old Pentax 67 camera for a couple weeks. I can't give an accurate value estimate because he bought the system + three lenses for a couple hundred dollars second-hand.

-really standout IQ
-surprisingly light for such a long lens

-"Auto" switch easily slides back to manual mode and needs to be re-cocked. This took a while to get used to, as when it's on manual the built-in light meter doesn't work.

Of the lenses in his kit this was by far my favorite to shoot with. It's an awesome focal length on medium format, and the aspect ratio fits the field of vision really well. It's also worth noting that it's not the easiest lens ever to focus. I realize this is mainly a fault of the Pentax 67, but if you're shooting at f/2.8 focus is very hard to nail. Despite that I think it's an amazing lens and I would highly recommend it.
