[SOLD] Pentax A* 300mm/4 lens

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax A* 300/4 lens

Asking Price
600 CAN

Item Location
Canada

Item Description
Pentax A* 300/4 lens in very good condition. The body shows a few minimal signs of use, mainly where the hood slides in and out. Optically, there are a few small specs of dust inside (which is normal for a lens this age) and there are 2 tiny scratches on the rear element (which you can see in the rear element picture that I'm attaching). There are no signs of haze or fungus, and everything operates as it should.

I bought this lens a little over a year ago and have taken many great photos with it, and I have never seen any indication of the 2 tiny scratches or any dust affecting the picture quality in any way. Overall, I feel this lens is in very good shape. The lens includes front and rear caps and the case, which is also in very good condition. Please check the pictures and feel free to ask questions. I can send you pictures that I have taken with this lens on request.

I will only ship this lens within Canada and the US, and I will provide quotes for actual shipping charges on request.

I will accept Paypal (verified Paypal accounts and shipping addresses only) or a check. In the case of a check, your check will have to clear at the bank before I will ship the lens.

Hi there. A few questions:
  • Are those scratches or just rub marks? I can't really tell from the picture.
  • How is the balance compared to the 300/4 ? Is there a tripod collar? Does it need one?

Thanks.

There are 2 tiny scratches on the rear element from the previous owner. I have seen no indication at all that they affect the image quality.

I haven't owned or used any 300/4 lenses other than this one, so I wouldn't be able to give you any sort of comparison. Personally, I find that this lens feels a little bit front heavy when mounted on the K7 or K5, but the lens is so compact and is nothing at all like the 400/5.6 lens that I have. This lens doesn't have a tripod collar, but I have yet to encounter a situation where I have felt that to be a problem.
