Fa 100mm-300mm lens for $80.00

Just bought a FA 100mm-300mm F4.7-5.8 lens on Craigslist for $80.00 in excellent condition.

I think I got a good deal? Anyone have experience with this lens on the K-5?

I overpaid at US$110 almost 3 years ago and I have no regrets. See my review. Yes, it's a splendid lens and impossible to beat for the price. Congrats!

I bought 2 pieces at 75 and 155 each (one is in mint and one is in very good condition) and I am very happy. Great lens for the buck. See my review for the lens.
