Sony AF 500mm F8 Reflex Lens (500/8) Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Sony AF 500mm F8 Reflex Lens (500/8)

Asking Price
$525 shipped - Sold locally

Item Location
Maryland (United States)

Item Description
Not sure we have a lot of Sony/Minolta shooters on PF, but just in case, here is a like-new Sony AF 500mm F8 reflex lens for sale. I recently acquired a like-new condition as part of a larger package of lenses (and an A850). Although it's an outstanding lens, I don't really have a need for something this long (that's what my DA*300 is for ).

The lens comes with the original box, lens caps and both the normal and ND4 drop-in filter. In addition, a LowePro 4S case will be included (pictured below). Please PM/email me with any questions you have. I am asking $550 shipped.

PayPal is my preferred method of payment (no additional fees to use PayPal), but I am open to other methods of payments on a case-by-case basis. Please PM me with any questions about shipping, payment or with any other questions you might have.

Are you the original owner of the item being sold?

Are you selling or trading this item?

Yeah, I got a chance to play around with it for a little bit earlier this evening after I took the picture of it for the ad. It's really is a pretty cool lens, and only a bit bigger than a can of soda/beer (although about twice as heavy). The AF is actually quite decent too, especially considering I was playing around with it indoors (which is less than ideal given the focal length and max aperture). DOF at 500/8 is very thin, so the fact that it can accurately AF is a huge bonus for this type of lens (IMO).
