This is an amazing lens. It's a big lens, though, and it really needs a tripod. I don't own a tripod! Sample pictures are taken with a monopod, so don't show it to fullest advantage, but I think you get the drift.

In thinking about it, I've never really been a tripod-style photographer, and even if I were, I think I'd be using shorter lenses for it.

This lens has a support collar and should be mounted on the tripod (rather than the camera). It is a beast: the lens alone weighs about 30 ounces (about 840 grams). It includes a rear-lens cap, but there is no front lens cap, only a removable insert inside the leather carrying case that goes over the lens, but doesn't snap on.

It looks almost new except for a couple of small signs of wear. The warranty card from Honeywell Pentax dates it to the mid-70s at the latest.

I'm also including the Pentax M42 (screw mount) adapter for it; it focuses just past infinity. Price is $60 shipped in the US; $70 in Canada; overseas shipping for the difference in cost.

Sorry I missed seeing the above: yes to all the above.

Here's some better photos now that I have a tripod:

Infinity (~50 meters), 100% crop, f/3.5, no PP:

Taken at about 2 meters (6 ft), this is a 100% crop with no PP. This one makes me want to keep the lens and lug a tripod around, frankly....

More in this photo set, along with comparison with other lenses on the same shoot. None of them have post-processing, so you can see its attributes along with other lenses.
