Default 600mm Asanuma lens

Hi from PA. Newbie with a stupid question. Has anyone here heard of an Asanuma 600mm f8 lens? I own a 400 mm f6.3 M-42 that I use on my Pentax K200D. Someone told me they made a 600mm as well.

Thanks.

Welcome to the forums.

Well.. a quick google search found a couple of sites with that lens in a list (but, no real details about it). Here's one page:

Hi,

I actually have one. I bought it in 1977 when I was 14 years old. I still have the original case and the original box it came in. The lens is right around 24 inches long and comes in two pieces. A large ring screws the 2 halves together. There is a large metal lens shade that screws into the end and has a place for installing filters near the mount. I have (2) T2 mounts for it. One allows it to screw into the threads of Miranda's and the other is for the standard Canon EF bayonet mount. Very cool lens and I would do anything to know what it might be worth. I've been hinking about selling it but I can't find any information on it's value. It must be a very rare lens because no one seems to know much about them.

John
