[SOLD] Pentax A 400mm F5.6 (Worldwide)

Pentax A 400mm F5.6

Asking Price
350

Item Location
Rugby, UK

Item Description
I'm selling this 400mm prime, because I suck at wildlife photography...
And I don't really have enough free time to improve my skills - I will have to change the job first, I think.

Lens is in great condition, glass is clean, no scratches on the body, manual focus ring perfectly smooth, sliding hood works fine.
Comes with original caps and hard case (some scuffs on the outside of the case, but lining inside is in perfect condition). I've bought it second hand from Harrison Cameras.

It's plenty sharp even wide open, focusing ring has quite a long throw - fantastic focus precision on the tripod, but a bit of a pain if you want to use it hand held (size/weight wise it's ok for hand holding, as long as you have to do small focus adjustments only).

And it comes with free gift - Feisol QR plate - short one, so not perfect for a tele, but does the job.

I'll use Royal Mail for shipping, cost probably around 20 for the insured packet to the most of EU countries (I'll confirm that later).
UK Buyers - free shipping, Paypal or bank transfer - or cash if you want to collect the lens in person.
I don't mind selling Worldwide, but it's a fairly heavy and big lens, shipping cost may be unpleasant...

I'm away from home for Easter, I will post some photos of the lens early next week.

Price drop - 350.
I'm leaving for a *long* business trip on 16th of May, I would preferably sell it earlier, or I won't be able to ship it until end-of-June-ish.

And some pictures:
