Pentax-F* 300mm F4.5 Lens w/ Tripod Mount, Box Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax-F* 300mm F4.5 Lens w/ Tripod Mount, Box

Asking Price
1000 USD

Item Location
Raleigh, NC (United States)

Item Description
I recently went in for a DA* 300/4 for it's weathersealing, and that means I need to let go of my trusty F* 300/4.5. It's sad to let it go, it's probably the smallest, lightest 300mm autofocus prime lens you'll find (screw-out hood included!). It really does make a great travel prime and has given me many fantastic images over the couple years I have owned it.

Pentax rear cap
Third party inner pinch front cap (works great)
Tripod mount (nearly impossible to find if not bought w/ this lens)
Box (a little worn)
S/N Papers
SMC Pentax-F lens booklet

Overall, the lens is in very good condition. There is some wear to the paint, particularly where the tripod mount attaches. The glass is clean and clear, with the exceptions of a tiny pinhead size speck and a very short hairline nick in the coating. These are only visible under close inspection and have no impact on the wonderful image quality of the lens. Functionally, everything works great. AF is quite fast with my K-7, aperture functions properly.

Please send me a PM if you have any questions.

Here are some photos of the lens and other goodies to give you a better idea of the visual condition of the items.

A few images I have made with the lens:

This should have been marked NSFW... lens porn.

On a serious note, if you are thinking about buying, this is a fantastic lens and will be the best thousand bucks you'll spend in a long while.

Good luck with the sale.
