You are right John. I will have to check it out thoroughly but I also picked up a 43 Ltd here, in perfect condition, for under $200. Sometimes here those bargains just appear because in China it;s all Canon & Nikon and they are just off-loading - maybe from trade-ins.
Pentax : 15 Ltd, 77 Ltd, 43/1.9 Ltd, Cosina 55/1.2, DA*300/4, Contax Zeiss Distagon 28/2.8, Raynox 150/250, AFA x1.7, Metz 50 af1.

Nikon : D800, D600, Sigma 500/4.5, Sigma 120-300/2.8, Zeiss Distagon ZF2 - 21/2.8, Zeiss Distagon ZF2 - 35/2.0, Nikkor 85/1.8G, Sigma 50/1.4. Nikon x1.4 TC, Sigma x2.0 TC

Outstanding results!
I might have to put that one on my hot list.

Stellar shots. The detail and color are brilliant. That lens and your skill are a fine combination.

Really spectacular results from a hard combination to manage (all that weight! Wow!). I've sometime briefly thought about getting one of these fast 300 mm lenses but think of the weight and size, and gladly grab my 300 f4 that weighs significantly less.

Great sharp results & very well-composed - a fine lens in some fine hands!
