100-300 FA*

He's about to make some money on that transaction...
Only if the buyer is an idiot. There is no such thing as an FA*100-300. There were three different incarnations of F or FA 100-300 and none of them were any good.

Avant. That's just an FA 100-300mm f 4.7-5.8 not an FA* as there was never an FA* in that range. The only FA* zooms were the 28-70, 80-200 and the 250-600
Thx for the correction.

this just doesn't add up. I kinda think it's someone who bought this stuff up at an estate sale and is re-selling it. My thinking is
a) someone 'in the biz' would recognize how well some of these match with the K10D
b) someone 'in the biz' would list the speed of the lens. I don't see one f-stop in any of the listings.

... just doesn't seem like someone who's owned these for years is the one selling them. JMHO.
Check his (her?) answer in the auction for M200/4. Makes sense to me. I have advised the seller to keep 24/2.8 though and sell 28/2.8 instead (he decided to keep 50/1.7 and 28/2.8).

As has been said:

"OTOH, if you look closely at the collection being auctioned by this guy, you'll see that there are no really outstanding lens. Maybe he's just selling them to get better glass "

Not too loud, guys. There's one there I want. Don't really "need" it, but want it to replace another one in a similar focal length that won't work on my digitals.
