I was looking in the window of LCE in Guildford this afternoon and saw one of these going for 799...

Nutters! You'd get an unmanned drone firing a missile at you if you set that up on a UK highstreet hoping to get a pic of one of the party leaders. Or a insouciance of PCSOs
Lurking is shirking.!

Nah!
Everyone know that rocket launchers are dark coloured...
Unless they sneakly painted them... Take them down!

True, but that was not the one I saw in LCE. With a 67-PK adaptor it would be a (relatively) cheap way to get long Pentax glass...

Interestingly they also had (new) Samyang 800 F8 mirror lenses there...

The 800mm will be very difficult to use. DOF is minuscule.

Good light is required.

Looks not unlike that K 300mm f2 prototype on the Dimitrov site.

You should have seen the looks I got wandering around near reservoirs with the K 85-210mm zoom!
