DA*300, Pentax-F AF Adapter 1.7X, DA70 - price drop

I need to clear out some stuff I don't use and raise a little cash.

The DA*300 I just bought. It's quality is stunning, but what I underestimated was it's stunning weight. I can shoot it handheld no problem, it's just that my arms grow tired. And I'm not the kind of guy who hauls around a monopod. I had the money and the desire when I bought it, but the reality is I would rarely use it....and it's just too much money tied up in a lens that will be rarely used (for a man in my income bracket). The forum member I bought it from rarely used it as well. It's less than year old and is in excellent condition. Perfect glass, and no nick or dings on the body either. Comes with front and rear caps and pouch, original box and even original receipt. $1050 (REDUCED TO $900 for quick sale) is the total shipped to your door is the US (and no hidden fees). NOW SOLD!

The Pentax-F AF 1.7x adapter is a wonderful little gizmo. I bought it to use with the DA*300 to get a 510mm reach. You just get the focus in the ballpark on the DA*300 and then use the AF on the's fast and accurate. If you want to shoot wildlife, you need this adapter...gets you much closer. Comes with front and rear caps, but no box. $350 (SOLD !! ) is the total shipped to any US address (and no hidden fees).

The Pentax DA70mm Ltd is in beautiful shape. Clean glass and just light handling wear on the barrel. Most would call it mint. Comes complete with front and rear caps, leather pouch and box. $425 (REDUCED to $380 for quick sale) shipped to any US address.

Sned me a private message if you have any specific questions that I didn't cover or want to close the deal. I have a little bit of feedback here. And I have a ton of feedback on eBay at mikeslps and mikeslps_2 and plenty of feedback at the forum here... Micro Four Thirds User Forum - View Profile: Luke

Payments by Paypal and all fees are included in the price.

Buyer for AF 1.7x has gone missing and
