[SOLD] A* (Star) 300mm f/2.8 & Rokinon 85mm f/1.4

Pentax SMC A* 300mm IF ED f/2.8 (Last call)
Testing the waters to see if there's any interest for my fairly rare A* 300mm f/2.8 Lens is in excellent condition. Yes, I'm sure I'll regret it, but I don't use it enough, and LBA (and suspicious wife) require I sell off some stuff to support the habit.

I purchased it from a camera shop in so cal, the shop owner said he had bought the lens refurbished from Pentax (This lens was new and Pentax (when they used to actually attend shows) had this on display at 2001 PMA show in Las Vegas) and it's remained in that great condition since. Glass is pristine, very minor cosmetic wear on body of lens. Only real visible wear is on the tripod mount. Pics available pending interest.
Paid $2,500 would like to get $2,500 for it. Will include a monster (but cheap) front UV filter that I keep on it for storage protection. Also comes with the Pentax aluminum carrying case and UV rear hatch drop in filter. Willing to ship internationally, but your Paypal account must be address verified or your seller reputation here pristine and established. 7 day return period no questions asked - as long as lens is returned in exact condition it was received.

TRADE: I would be interested in negotiating (trade plus cash if applicable) for one/many/all of the following lenses: Pentax A 50mm 1.2, FA* 85mm, FA* 300mm, or FA* long zoom. Pentax Limited 77mm, Limited 43mm, FA* 80-200mm 2.8, DA* 60-250mm.

Includes:
  1. Pentax SMC A* 300mm IF ED f/2.8
  2. UV filters for front and rear
  3. Pentax aluminum carrying case
  4. Leather/leatherette front element cover
  5. Papers, warranty info

Rokinon 85mm f/1.4 SOLD
Also selling my less exciting, but competent nonetheless 85mm 1.4 manual lens.
It's in pretty much mint condition and comes with a ~$40 Hoya HMC Super UV O 72mm filter.
Price $250 plus shipping. (Note, with filter, cost is about $210 for the lens).
Includes:
  • Rokinon 85mm f1.4 lens
  • Hoya HMC Super 72mm UV O filter
  • front & rear caps (of course!), Rokinon lens hood
  • MFR box


Looking forward to seeing some responses!

Hi, I'm not clear on what you mean. Are you asking me if I would like to sell the front filter for the lens? It's a pretty cheap one and would prefer to keep it on the lens. You can pick it up on Ebay for around 20-30 bucks. Let me know if you're interested in any of the lenses

I was looking for this lens a couple of months go, but my wife found out about the money and now has a new diamond ring On the positive this gives me clearance with no arguments when I get the money back So if testing the water doesn't work out this time and you hang on to it, I might be interested later on. In the mean time a fee bump.

Thanks for the bumps you guys!

I sold the Rokinon, and am thinking about retiring the 300mm thread next week, since I'm pretty happy with the lens still. A couple of things have also impacted this decision:
1. The planned Sigma 85mm f/1.4 costing too much
2. Still happy with my other Rokinon 85mm f/1.4
3. Purchase of a DA70 that rather kicks ass.

I'll test the waters some other time if I have no solid takers.

Tootall, feel free to holler at me when/if your LBA intersects with available funds again

OMG that 300mm is nice!
I wish there was a way I could buy it

I'd try sexual soliciations, but the women in my region seem to think I should be paying them(wtf?).
