Some class glass there. Not silly prices but out of my league.

In all the comments about Pentax needing longer/faster glass, one often looses sight of the cost of these things.

Lots of film bodies, a couple of digital ones, too many lenses (mainly older glass) and a Horseman LE 5x4.

I still think the 400mm is a bit overpriced but had he been in the UK I would certainly have thought about selling my A* 300mm f2.8 to buy it.

If the 400mm is a good as the 300 then it will be a superb lens .. although at twice the weight I can't imagine carting that around too much

Well, you could make him an offer. And you could pick it up yourself and test in the field, there is lot of nature around there...

unless that thing comes truck mounted, no sale.
I'd rather pay $600.00 for a 400 to 600 f8 reflex zoom please, pentax, if your reading this...lol!
Fired many shots. Didn't kill anything.
