Selling the kidney put me over the top.

The lens and TCs are now mine.

Nothing like a little recreational bidding to keep me off the streets.


Congrats! I'm definitely taking a road trip to your house soon

Wow - Congrats. I just was reading the thread, and looked at the lens, and then I saw you won, and then I looked more closely at the description and WTF, that lens is in my town... Holy sh*t, I didn't think there was anyone in this town using Pentax (since I sold mine - though my father in law did just get a K-x) and here's this monster lens. Wild!

And you deserve a good price because you are; Mother Theresa, Martin Luther King, Gandhi, ... ?

Thank you

Obviously I am none of the above considering how much I paid!

So was that more, or less than what you paid, oh Dadi-P?

Or is it to early to ask...?

Factoring in the TCs (a very cool aspect of this transaction, imo) and assuming more or less equivalent (KEH EX) condition, I'd say it's pretty much on the mark. No self-administrered dope slaps for me!

After seeing this could anyone give me an idea of what I should ask for my A* 300mm f2.8 with both converters. Have decided to sell them on the marketplace and could do with a guide price. Few marks on the body, glass is clean and also comes with a custom made filter.

So, I take it that you will now follow up on your invitation: besides allowing to use this lens, do you also provide beer and snacks, plus free accommodation?

Now, don't you feel silly bumping up the final price you paid and all!

I understand the concept of keeping quiet about a bargain. However, I just don't think that many exist out there anymore. Not when we have multiple fora for each collectible with people discussing them ad nauseum (and yes, I'm right in there too). There are no secrets on the internet anymore.

Do a search on completed auctions on ebay to see what others are paying and set your price accordingly.
