Item Description

Up for sale is the FA 100-300mm 4.7-5.8. great reviews and a solid performer without breaking the bank. I used it on film cameras mostly and loved the light weight ease of use.

This copy is in stellar shape. Glass is clear and all moving pieces are in great working order, smooth and consistent. There is a bag zipper scratch on the barrel but it is small and common on these silver painted lenses of that era. Comes with the caps, original box, and original strap. You'd be hard=pressed to find a better copy.

Asking $85 + $18 shipping to US/Canada.

Last up here is what many say is the smallest auto 35mm film SLR ever made. The *ist.

Pentax *ist - Pentax Autofocus Film SLRs - Pentax Camera Reviews and Specifications

This camera is in stellar shape. I purchased off another forum member about a year ago to help winnow down some excess film I had last summer and I have to say I am sorry to let it go. This SLR is so small and handy it is went with me even at the expense of my K-x a few times! Comes with body cap, original box, and manual. Everything works. A tiny bit of VF dust. The battery is good for at least another year.

If you are looking for a small SLR the *ist is one of the more innovative cameras I've ever used.



Asking $85 + $18 shipping to US/Canada.

_________________________________________________________________________

First up is a DA 40/2.8 XS lens. It's in excellent shape and I think I may have taken less than 30 shots with it. Lovely lens with caps and clear glass and perfect functionality. Identical in optics and performance to the Limited version. A real deal.

The 100-300 is a very nice lens. You are quite correct about the silver paint though, stuff comes off real easy. (I lost some to a metal barreled lens stored in the section next to it inside my bag.)

Good luck with the sale.
