    Nice catch!! I've seen that lens, it's massive...I could've bought one some time ago for about $400 but passed on it. Probably should have, but I found the 500mm f/5.6 cheaply.

    Have you ever seen the 1000mm mirror lens??

    Ran across this morning among my cardboard-mounted 6x7 slides. P67II probably with the 165mm lens:

    I just scanned an old Fuji Velvia RVP for a friend taken with his 500C/M. While framed to include a dome-looking bluff above the falls it otherwise looks like the same place. Nevada Falls, I think he said?

    Thanks. Yeah it's too much of a lens, really. I found it at an estate sale. I've never seen one before and thought I would never see one again. So I said, F-it, I'm getting it. No, never seen the 1000mm lens.

    Nope - that's Vernal Falls. Nevada Fall is further up.

    More 600mm trials. I think this one shows limitations of the marginal tripod setup I used and slower shutter speed. It's fuzzy everywhere in frame compared to the hot air balloon.

    I pondered purchasing the Tak 600/4 but in the end got the new 1.4 and 2x Tele-extenders for the Tak 400 which has better reviews on the Pentax forum. I'm glad that I did because the Tax 400 and I presume also the 600 focusing ring is too stiff for what I wanted to use it for: taking B&W shots of sail-boating in the San Francisco Bay using a Manfrotto Gimble head. But while I was looking the 400 AF ED-IF for the Pentax 645 looked like a steal and I got one from Japan for a little less than $400 in excellent condition: pristine glass and no dings or scratches on the body. Even came with a new Kenbo UIV filter attached. The only negative was that for some reason the previous owner cut out a small square from the lens shade. But when attached it faces the ground and doesn't seem to interfere with the shades purpose and is not visible. More importantly the focus ring is smooth throughout requiring minimal pressure. The seller mentioned this feature so I don't know if it is particular to this lens or not but working with a tele-converter the smooth focusing of the lens and the damped mirror slap results in sharply focused negatives using the NII instead of the 67II.

    BTW, the Vernal Falls slide above was taken with the 105mm SMC and not the 165. I even when out to that big boulder took several shots while trying to dodge the mist from the front element by removing the front cap just as I triggered the cable release.

    Yeah my friend's picture was with an 80mm and it has a similar FOV to your picture. The 500C/M I own was his. He was an original owner. It was in excellent condition. Digital came along and he stopped using it. It took me years of begging him to sell it to me. Finally he did.
