Hi,

I am looking for a Super Telephoto Lens 400mm or more.

Of the top of my head, these come to mind:

Sigma 50-500
Sigma 150-500
Sigma 500mm f4.5
Pentax FA* 400mm f5.6
Pentax SMC A 400mm f5.6
Pentax DFA 150-450mm f5.6

I am based in London.
Budget conscious offers please.
Please PM or text me on 074 320 4188seven

Thanks,

Hi Tigs,
Welcome to the group. I have the Pentax DFA 150-450mm f5.6 available for sale on this forum if of interest.

Thank you, Al. Your lens sounds great. I am realising I probably can't afford it and probably can only get a cheaper sigma or older 400mm lens.

Not sure if that's the sort of price that's in your budget?

There is a A* 1200 for sale on ebay... only it has fungus! Still a bargain at $4500.

Thank you all.

Lenny, I am potentially interested in the 400mm f5.6. I sent a PM to your flickr account because as new user to the forum here I can't communicate via PM.
