Selling my Pentax 600mm F4

I'll post some photos tonight, and I understand you cannot give an accurate guess without them...

Any idea what this lens should sell for?

It works perfectly, just a little rough on the outside, from it long and exciting life.

How would anyone be able to tell without seeing any photos - especially when you say "a little rough on the outside"?

Personally I'd probably get the new Sigma 500mm F4.5 EX DG APO for 5 grand.
That extra 100mm isn't going to make all that much difference.

I might also be good to remember that pitching a lens for sale outside the marketplace is against forum rules. If you need a good estimate of value, go to KEH.com and see what they are asking. Subtract 15% and you will have a fair market value. Another option is finished auction results on eBay. The reviews section on this site is another option.

My apologies Steve, I haven't been active on the site for a while. Just noticed the as b&h forum and thought I would ask.

Did not intend to offend.

Just to be fair: list it on the Marketplace here: The Pentax Marketplace | Sell Pentax | Photographic Equipment for Sale - PentaxForums.com after you've done your homework.
This will bring direct attention to your lens and also prevent hurting anyone's feeling!

Cheers!

No offense taken and none intended either!
