Sir,

You find yourself mistakenly believing that no one has any interest when in fact no one has any money.

And should they have both interest and money then perhaps they have not the skill to use this lens effectively?

And should they have interest, money, and skill, then perhaps they already own one.

Good luck. I can only wish for the skill and the money.

Oh, I'm interested.

But . . . . . .

And here is my conundrum.

I have a Sigma 600mm mirror lens already, and yes, I know this lens has a faster aperture.

If I were to dig into the rainy day fund right now and buy any camera gear Mrs. Racer would have me by the gonads, and may not let go for a considerable time.

That itself could be somewhat uncomfortable.

So hopefully my comment here will give you some solace for your concern that no one is "interested".

I truly wish you the best of luck selling this fine example of Pentax glass.

Let me quote myself:

You got me. Pre-ordered the k-3 and bought DA 35mm Limited from a forum member last week. So the LBA relief fund is completely depleted at the moment.

Now I don't feel so bad. Thank you all for your honest remarks.
I was in the same bind not so long ago.

I would love to get another one and may be in the market soon. I have some great images from the A*600mm I had. I am just trying to decide between a 400mm and a 600mm.

I thought you just sold your copy. In any case, keep this one in mind if you decided to go with the A*600.

I'd have to cancel my K-3, bad timing.
