FA 300mm F4.5 IF ED - Lead on a lens

It kills me to pass this along as I'd love to be in a position right now to buy this myself, but as I don't have the money I thought I would share the find with the board in case someone else is looking for one of these hard to find lenses.

Came across it in an internet search listed in 9+ condition for what appears to be a reasonable price.

Pentax 35mm Used Photo Equipment -- Camera Tech Las Vegas

If someone buys it, send me a picture or two taken with it to let me know what I'm missing.

Usual Disclaimer - I'm in no way connected to this store, although I think I may have gone into it once while in Vegas.

Seems fishy. 1) price is too low for guys that say they know professional gear. 2) The main phone is disconnected and the fax number goes to another business.
I'd be suspicious unless I could walk in the door and see it.

Edit: It's a bogus Email address as well but they do show up on Must be out of business.

I didn't even call but saw the ad and thought it looked to be a heck of a deal.

Anyone on this site in the Las Vegas area that could check this place out?

Looks like an old site to me. The front page says : "The Camera Tech business location was totally destroyed by fire on September 12, 2003. Camera Tech will not be conducting business until further notice!"

'Course if it is still valid, that's a good deal!

Too bad

Proves the old maxim, "If it seems too good to be true, it probably is..." once again. In '03 it was likely the market price.

Oh well. I thought I had truly found someone a bargain. Sorry for the post as I didn't investigate the place well enough it turns out.
