Pentax FA*28-70/2.8, FA*80-200/2.8, A*300/2.8

Hello,

Here are some beautiful Pentax lenses for sale. The FA*28-70 is a duplicate, I keep the other one : third-party equivalents (Sigma 24-60, 24-70, Tamron 28-75 etc... ) are not in the same league at all in terms of performance, the FA* is just so much better all round (I've tested them side-by-side). I've recently acquired a Sigma 300/2.8 AF, so the A*300 has to go, I'm really not very good at focusing manually.

More detailed shots of each are available on request.

I can ship the FA*28-70 worldwide, for the other two I doubt it would be worthwhile for someone outside the EU, but I'll consider it anyway.
Prices below are net to me after Paypal fees, if any, and shipping (between 20 and 30 depending on destination for the FA*28-70, 25 to 45 for the FA*80-200, TBD for the A*300).

. Pentax SMC-FA* 28-70mm f/2.8

A fair amount of scratches and paint-loss on the barrel. Mechanically fine : aperture ring, focus ring, blades, AF/MF clutch all work as they should. Powerzoom works, it is noisy but the same as on my other Pz lenses - I would just never use it.
Glass is flawless, but for one tiny dust particle inside the elements.
Comes with original hood, generic rear/front caps.

Price : 750, or nearest offer.





. Pentax SMC-FA* 80-200mm f/2.8

Very beautiful clean copy, I can't really see any scratches anywhere. Everything in almost pristine condition. Glass is flawless, one or two very tiny dust specs inside.
Comes with original hood, Pentax rear/front caps and original (S 120-230) soft case.

Price : 1100







. Pentax SMC-A* 300mm f/2.8

A few tiny nicks and light dents on the barrel, rather than scratches or paint-loss, and a deeper one (2mm?) close to the rear filter-holder (does not affect functionality). The head of the screw for the tripod foot ring is slightly bent but everything works OK. Glass is scratchless, a little bit of internal dust. Blades are clean, no mechanical issue of any kind. Comes in its original carry box (in fairly good condition). Original soft front cap is ruined (made out a material that has a tendency to melt), I'll provide it but I've also added a LensCoat neoprene hood. I'll try to retrieve the set of filters from the previous owner (I'm still in contact with him), he has them but I didn't get them first time round.

Price : 1100, or nearest offer

Pictures added (quality isn't great, I'll send much better ones via email).
It may take me until tonight to answer all PMs as I have to leave the house, sorry about the wait.
