Pentax-A 400 f/5.6

Looking for a copy of the SMC Pentax-A 1:5.6 400mm in excellent optical and functional condition and reasonable cosmetic condition, for shipment to North Carolina USA.

Thanks. What's the focus throw of the Tokina? (This is the AT-X SD version, right?) One reason I want the Pentax-A is that I generally manually focus, especially for birding, and want a long focus throw. Is there an MF/AF switch?

It makes half of a full turn from 2.5 to infinity. There is no MF/AF switch, but i guess the one on the camera could be used (or not? sorry Im still a n00b). And yes, it is a AT-X SD AF400.

Still looking for the A 400 (while I consider the Tokina).

On order from KEH. Will update to "acquired" once I actually have the lens. Thanks for looking.
