Hey all, picked up this lens after hearing good things in this thread.

Six Mile Creek and Frozen Mud by natestation2 - (SMC Pentax 85-210mm f/3.5)

I'd say it lives up to everything said here. Super sharp (but some CA opened wide), etc...

Although this discussion about the 85-210/3.5 has long been 'closed', I thought my question could fit in nicely.
I have this rare lens and close-up lens in original box in excellent condition and don't find myself using it at all.
Realising this lens is more of a collector's item (K 85-210/3.5), I've decided to sell it and put the money in a 2nd hand body to update my K10d.

Where would be the best place to put it up for sale and where would collectors find my link easily? I'm based in London, UK.

Any input is welcome.

Ask for a trade in some UK forum (like, you could perhaps fetch a used K3 or Ks-2 in a trade depending on condition and cash in between.
If you find a used body in a store they might like to move it when new models come out.
