    I don't have one for sale, but suggest you look for the 200mm f4, which is very cheap and good. KEH.com has several for sale right now.

    I have a couple of M42 Super Tak or SMC 200/4 lenses and an SMC 135/2.5 at home. PM me if interested.

    "Telephoto" is pretty non-specific. Pentax made telephoto screw mount Takumars in 83, 85, 100, 105, 120, 135, 150, 200, 300, 400, 500, and 1000 millimeter focal lengths, many of different apertures, and most in multicoated versions.

    Any particular focal lengths in mind? Or particular purpose in mind? A 200 for example might be too long or too short, depending on what you want to do with it.

    I've got a SM 135 2.5 that I have tested and it is one of the best lenses I've seen. I'm out of Pentax so it should go somewhere.

    Wayne,
    Is yours a Pentax lens? I have one for bayonnet mount for my other Pentax and it is really good!
    Yes I'd be interested.
    LXdude, Was looking for something in the 135 to 200mm range< do you happen to have a 400mm or 500mm? Just curious!

    No, but I wish I did!
    I do have a 200mm Super Takumar I've had for many years that is really sweet. I use it with the adapter on my K-mounts when I want the look only it gives.

    I assume you are aware of KEH, which has several 135's and 200's and a 150 right now. You probably ought to buy one of each.:wink::whistling:

    I have a Tamron SP 60-300mm adaptall2 lens that I would be willing to sell. It is a very well regarded lens and has the advantage of being able to be used on any camera that you have the proper adaptall mount for. (They are all over that infernal auction site).
