Those lenses you are looking at are all MIRROR LENSES. That's why they are cheap. And they are made by third parties, not Pentax orginal. You just can't find a Pentax original 500mm prime lens (not a mirror lens) for just S$200-250, unless the lens is really spoiled already :D

Never had any experience with mirror lenses, but it'll be okay I guess if you don't mind the pic quality.

Another way to have a long focal length is to use a teleconverter. It's cheaper and might be better than a mirror lens.

Cheers!
