[SOLD] Pentax SMC FA 100-300mm 4.5-5.6 (US/CAN)

Price: USD$72 (net and shipped)

What: Pentax SMC FA 100-300mm f4.5-5.6 in Good condition, including generic front and rear caps.

Condition: Some minor scratches on the zoom ring, some dusts inside the lens. Nothing unusual for a lens of this age. Class clean without fog, fungus, or scratches.

Comments: Image quality is slightly lower than DA 55-300mm at the 300mm side. But focusing speed is significantly faster than the DA. It also has a few more aperture blades than the DA. The FA lens does not extend when zooming. A good zoom lens in the film era. Working properly on full frame cameras.

Got the DA recently for its convenience. But for the sake of image quality, I doubt that I would have upgraded. A great bargain for someone who shoots at the 300mm side. Better than most third party lenses of the same era.

Asking price includes shipping within CONUS. 7 days return, but buyer pays return shipping.

Original Poster

When I posted the ad, there was a slot for pricing. It is odd that the price was not finally shown. Clearly, I did not double check after posting. The format seems to have changed. Thanks for pointing this out.
