[SOLD] FS: 77 f/1.8 Ltd Black $600 + shipping

I'm selling my Pentax 77mm f/1.8, which is approximately one year old. I just don't use the focal length enough and would like to put the money into a better tele. The lens itself is in excellent condition. No scuffs, scratches, or other marks on the body or glass. The front lens cap does have a few scratches on it, but... well... it's a lens cap. The lens comes with the original Pentax black leather lens pouch and all the original materials (box, manual, warranty card). I'm also including the B+W 49mm MRC UV filter which I've kept on the lens since day one. B+W MRC filters are arguably the best on the market. This particular one cost $35.

The price for everything is $600 + actual shipping cost. I would prefer a buyer within the US, but I'm willing to ship overseas.

Wow small world, I was just searching flickr for 77mm shots yesterday and was looking through your photos. Some nice animal shots in there!

I would have been honored to buy your lens, but purchased a silver one last night.

Thanks for the kind words.

The kookaburra was at f/4. The kangaroo was at f/2.8. The swan was at f/3.5.

Since I know people are always curious about the wide open quality of these fast primes, here are a couple at f/1.8:

Also, the lens is now pending sale.
