if anyone is looking for a super takumar500mm f/4.5there is one available on that favorite auction site we are all addicted to. reasonable buy it now too... no it's not mine, but i know a few on here have been looking for one. first one i've seen on there for a while now. i'm still holding out for one that has smc, otherwise i'd be all over this.

don't want to post the link since i know that's a no no, but it's easy enough to find if you do a search for pentax 500mm

lucky indeed! my pickings are so slim up here, it is really sad. the best the local store has to offer me was a plastic promaster, no thanks. if you ever see anything down there that i might be interested in, give me a hollar. it's only a few hours and i've made that drive down there and back many times after getting off work. for good pentax glass it would be worth it!

just called them and they have a super tak for 450usd.. you would still have to get a new mount that would run $138 shipped.. for $588 , i think i'd wait for a smc on ebay to show up. i've seem them go for 400-700 there. there's usually one that runs every once a month.

edit: that is a reasonable price. i just looked at it. tom(ennaacac) has this lens. i also think he's used both. ask him if there's much of a difference.

this is not a lens that you just take with you to use. it's a lens you take with you to use. to me , it's a tripod only lens and i've gotten superb shots with it.

i'm watching some auctions that end in the next 48 hours so if i don't win one of those i may still swoop in a pick up the super tak 500mm. there is that smc a 400mm f/2.8 that closes tonight. i've got it marked in my favorites but still at that price i'd have to eat ramen noodles all next year!

Sorry to bug you but you seem quite knowledgable on the subject. I just recently aquired a 500mm 4.5 Takumar (not super or SMC) I was curious what you might be able to tell me about it. I bought it for my wife but I will probably sell it as she doesn't want it, she is small and its a monster hell the case looks like a mailbox. I appreciate any help.
