Pentax FA 100-300mm f4.5-5.6

I seem to have a very good example of the pentax 100-300mm. I wasn't too impressed with a "F" I had previously (see my review - distinctly soft at 300mm f5.6, CA's) but this FA is very good - gives my sigma apo 100-300mm f4 a run for its money. Indeed, for the price I paid it's an absolute stunner. I can only speculate as to why the difference - probably just sample variation. This does prove you can find a good one.
Seee also pics posted in the 300mm+ lens club (#36249>), and the FA unlimited club (#620, 626).

Camera: KS2. Whitethroat pic 3 a big crop, sedge warbler oops I mean pipit pic 5 a full 1:1 crop.

I have FA 100-300 but 4.7-5.8 Silver , not sure if optical design is the same.
I haven't used mine for years , I am going to take it for a walk with my new K-3lll.

I've been keeping half an eye out for that version i-trax to check it out. For some reason it does tend to bid up more. It would be great to see some pics from one here.
