Item Description
Up for sale is my copy of the legendary Pentax SMC zoom lens the FA* 80-200/f2.8. If you are considering this lens then you already are aware of the high image quality output from one of Pentax’s best zoom lenses.

I am the second owner of the lens and it has been kept in excellent condition with no apparent marks or scratches on either the body or the glass. (Exceptions: slight marks on the rubber portion of the hood. These are barely visible and one very tiny scratch on the aperture ring near f/4 -see photo #4)The condition is as close as you find to new on the used market. I am selling because I have migrated to a different platform and no longer have a Pentax body to use the lens on. It comes with hood, original front & rear caps, box & warranty card, & factory soft case with strap.

Asking price is $1,695 shipped via USPS Priority insured to the continental USA only. I’ll offer a discount of $100 for local pickup. I can accept USPS Money order, cashiers check or personal check (shipping after funds have cleared) If you would like to use Paypal, please add 3% to the sales price. Serious offers only will be considered.

I have done several transactions here, more with positive feedback on Fred under username Sirfishalot. Also on eBay under Sirfishalotz.

Please PM me with inquires.
Thanks for looking,


Here are the images of the lens:

Simply explain to the wife and kids that much of the world subsists on cereal grains with no meat or fresh veggies and you would like them to have this experience. And you'd like to document it with this old lens you found. Easy. Drool.
