[SOLD] Rarities: A* 200 F4 Macro; FA* 24mm F2; FA* 300 F4.5

STILL AVAILABLE: Pentax A* 200mm F4 Macro: $2266
I bought this lens new from B&H around 2000 (just before they were finally discontinued). I used it a bit with my LX and MZ-S, but very little since I went digital (and had kids) in 2005. No marks on the front or rear glass, body, or tripod foot. In the right light you might be able to find a little "bag wear" to paint corners, so I would call it borderline Like New / Excellent. Includes the original packaging and original lens case (S80-160) in the box as shown below. This is probably about as close to a new sample as you're going to find.

SOLD: Pentax FA* 24mm F2.0: $515
I bought this lens new from B&H in 1997. I used it a bit with my LX and MZ-S, but very little since 2005. No marks on the front or rear glass. A little wear on the hood bayonet, and a little dust from usual use. Otherwise this is a clean lens. Condition is Excellent. Includes the original packaging and original lens case (S90-100) in the box as shown below.

SOLD: Pentax FA* 300mm F4.5: $927
I bought this lens new from B&H in 1998 or 1999. I used it with my ZX-5 and MZ-S, but very little since 2005. No marks on the front or rear glass. A couple of marks on the hood paint, but that's pretty much it. Condition is Excellent. Includes the original packaging and original lens case (S90-160) in the box as shown below.

Terms
Will ship USPS Priority mail based on actual cost. Insurance is optional, but the buyer assumes risk of damage if the package is not insured. Payment via PayPal. These are expensive lenses, so be sure you know what you're buying--I'm not interested in "buyer's remorse" returns. Thanks for looking!

Notes
I'm a "too busy to post" lurker here, and used to be more active on the Pentax Discuss Mailing List back in the 1990's and early 2000's. I mostly shoot pictures my kids these days with a small collection of black limited lenses. The items above are just sitting in my closet unused, so it's time for me to part with them. I have sold a bunch of stuff on eBay (my User ID is "maarrrk"), including my FA* 28-70 F2.8 and FA* 80-200 F2.8 lenses back in the fall of 2006.

I would sure like to get that 200 macro but the wife would divorce me and my Pentax.
