Here is a link to the lens in the forum database:

PentaxForums.com Third-Party Pentax Lens Review Database - 105mm f2.8 Macro

and here are some links to some recently sold copies of this lens:

https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/sold-items/42661-sold-lester-dine-105mm-f...cro-kiron.html

Depending on the condition looks like the average price is somewhere in the ballpark of 325ish. Make your offer. If the seller finds it too low they will tell you so

I don't know, but I do know that I'd go new and AF before buying a used MF Series-1 or Dine piece for $300+. Sigma, Tamron, Tokina, and Pentax all offer good solutions.

If for any reason, you don't want to buy it. Can you please get it for me. I would love to send you the $200 and postage so you can buy it and mail it to me. I am serious. Thanks. Assuming it is in decent shape though....

I've not used any of the ~100mm AF macro options but I can tell you that the Dine and others of that breed are worth every penny of a $300 price tag. For macro work MF is preferable, and the construction of these lenses is absolutely amazing. No modern plastic lens can match it, and the MF feel and performance are the same.
