Pentax FA* 400mm f/5.6 IF ED Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax FA* 400mm f/5.6 IF ED

Asking Price
$2000 USD

Item Location
Chicagoland Illinois (United States)

Item Description
Pentax FA* 400 f/5.6 [IF]

Iíve owned this lens for years. Itís not getting the use it deserves now. I hope the new owner will put it to good use.

The lens is in very good shape. The images show a few marks on the body, there are some faint marks on the hood. The glass is clear, no haze, and no fungus. I will include a 77mm UV filter thatís been fitted since I purchased the lens. The auction includes the soft case, front and rear caps.

$2000 USD shipping included within the continuous USA, Shipping outside the lower 48 will have additional shipping and handling charges. I've been burned a time or two. I will consider these on a case by case basis.

This is a pretty rare lens. It will be well packed, shipped insured and will require signature upon receipt.
I usually ship USPS or FedEx ground.
Payment by PayPal is fine. USPS money orders are also OK. If you are near northern Illinois or need a road trip, cash is fine.

Thank you for looking!
