[SOLD] Value of SMC Pentax 85-210mm f4.5

HI everyone.

Im a newby on this forum and I have a SMC Pentax 85-210mm f4.5 that I would like to gage the value of since I am thinking about selling it.

I dont know allot about this lens other than it takes nice Pics on my *istD and according to it comes up once in a lifetime used.

I have the original case (Scuffed exterior but otherwise like new), original lens caps, the main lens (In excellent condition) and an additional front screw on lens that is also a pentax original but looks like it is simply a protective filter (This additional front lens has been etched by fungus).

If anyone can tell me more about this it would be great.

Thanks Elliot

Boz's site is sometimes in error. I have seen a few of these on eBay and certainly more often than once in a lifetime. The f3.5 version is more difficult to come by. I paid about $85 for mine and had to get the case seperately later. The additional lens, if it is the correct one, is for close ups. The additional focus scale is used when you use this lens. More info in the K Lens instruction book on my website.
