smc fa 300 f4

I have an opportunity to purchase this lens, I have looked at the lens review, but was wondering if anyone else has had any issues with this lens.

The price is $aud850

I don't have the FA, but I have the F* which has the same optics. It's a fantastic lens, extremely sharp even wide open. The main drawback of the FA version is that it lacks a tripod mount, which is a very useful feature of the F.

Sounds like a reasonably good price, assuming it's in good condition.

Russell can you tell me where you found this lens? I'm looking for a longer lens myself.
