Pentax-A 400 & 35-70; DA 55-300, 18-55

I'm selling off most of my lenses in order to fund a new telescope mount for astrophotography. All prices include shipping in CONUS and paypal fees (if applicable). Not really looking to do any trades except for maybe a FA 50 1.4 or DA 15 LTD in good condition. You may have noticed this is my first time selling on the forum and I don't have any feedback. You can check my ebay account, Topher103185, for a feedback score or I can point you to a few other forums I've sold on if need be.

Pentax-A 400 F5.6: I originally bought this lens to replace my telescope for astrophotography. While it does have a much flatter field its just too soft at infinity until f8-f11 (reviews for this lens are spot on) which kind of defeats the purpose when you're taking astro-photos. Great lens for terrestrial shots, I just never use it. While optically and mechanically the lens performs great, its cosmetic condition is far from mint. Nothing terrible just a few scratches and scuff marks here and there. It has a bit of dust on the camera side lens which can be cleaned but it doesn't affect image quality so I never bothered with it. The lens includes a UV filter and rear lens cap. Unfortunately, I don't have one for the front. - $265 SOLD

Cosmicar/Pentax A 35-70 F4: I bought this off ebay a while ago on a whim and it turned out to be a great lens. Rather sharp for what it is and fantastic build quality. Lens is in excellent condition. - $45 - SOLD

Pentax DA 55-300 F4-5.8: This is not the DAL version with the plastic mount, its the DA version with the metal mount. Excellent condition. Includes original box and canvas pouch. - $315 SOLD

Pentax DA 18-55 WR: This is the nicer WR version of the kit lens. I've barely ever used it, practically new. Includes original box. - $100 SOLD

From what I saw, it's not Pentax-A 35-70mm f4. It's third party brand.

I should have specified that this is not branded Pentax but is branded as a Cosmicar. Its the same lens, just has a different label on it. Still made in Japan.

Bump! Lowered the prices a bit and also removed the DA 40. I decided to keep it.
