Pentax FA* 200mm f/4 macro

I live in Greece.
Will pay reasonable price for a lens this caliber.
I plan on using it, so i don't need a minty one - just clean glass...
I'll consider the manual focus A* as well!

Good luck finding one- not many are willing to give theirs up!
I just sold mine a few weeks ago... it was a terrific lens.

I would add FA* and 200mm to your marketplace watch list, to ensure that you're the first to be notified when one gets posted!

Dear Miles:

Good luck! In case you haven't done the research, apparently only about 1100 copies of this lens were made and sold world-wide. Don't hold your breath waiting for one to come on the market, and if Sigma actually makes some of their new 180mm f2.8 macro in K-mount, I would advise you to buy one before it goes off the market.

Thanks Wpresto! I know it's not going to be easy to find... I'm in no hurry, so I can keep breathing while searching!
As I said, I'll be very happy with the A* version as well! Kind regards!
