[SOLD] Pentax FA* 300mm/ 4.5 Telephoto lens (US/CAN)

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax FA* 300 / 4.5 Telephoto lens

Asking Price
$US 950

Item Location
Calgary, Alberta, Canada

Item Description
Classic Pentax FA* 300 f4.5 IF/ED lens. Optics and mount in excellent condition, fungus free, blades are snappy and oil free, housing shows some scuffing and wear on the silver coating due to regular use. Complete with lens caps and hood.

Reason for sale - have been shooting mostly shorter focal length for the past year (and trying to save cash to spring for a K-5 in the new year).

Photos of the lens and image quality examples are posted here:

Some additional real world images taken with this lens are here:

Image quality examples - the last two photos in the series were taken by this lens, at maximum aperture and minimum focus distance. This lens has excellent contrast and sharpness at all f-stops. With the shake reduction on the K20D, you will not need a tripod at shutter speeds faster than 1/60 sec. Maybe even slower if your hands are steadier than mine.

This, of course, is one of Pentax' top lenses. I have the F* version, which I like. I'm anxious to get it back from cleaning so I can use it on my K-5! I suspect they will go quite well together.
