PRIME Pentax-F 100mm f2.8 MACRO (AF with Focus Limiter!) - $399 shipped!

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
PRIME Pentax-F 100mm f2.8 MACRO (AF with Focus Lock!) - WORLDWIDE

Asking Price
399.00 USD (shipped to the Continental U.S. (Comparable savings elsewhere)

Item Location
Kearney, Nebraska (United States)

Item Description
Two items:
Pentax-F 100mm f2.8 Macro (with Focus Lock)

Pentax S80-120 Soft Case (fits and protects many Pentax lenses) Soft case is SOLD.

You don't see this lens offered on Marketplace often, and the last two that I have offered here were snapped up quickly (by buyers who are Very Happy Campers).

Why are many people after this one, instead of the current D/FA or later FA models?
One of the highest rated Pentax lenses (9.5 average on the Pentax Forums review page). The later FA and D/FA version lacks the handy focus range limiter. If you have a Pentax Q, this lens will also give you a great 560mm equiv. FOV and super macro working distance, along with greater DOF (thanks to the smaller sensor). And yet you can get this one for the same price (or less).

QuoteQuote:
Difficult to find one in excellent condition due to its age and rarity. Older F lenses tend to be popular due to subjective preferences; i.e. amount "pixie dust" , color of coating (deeper purple), and perhaps material composition of optics.
QuoteQuote:
The lens has a unique rendering quality to it, different from modern digital lenses.
See 201 images accepted into the Pentax Photo Gallery for this model:



If that isn't enought to make you drool over owning this lens, there are MORE on Flickriver.


This lens still has the bright gold "Passed" sticker affixed. It shows a little bit of use cosmetically (see photos). Optically and mechanically it is superb.













I will be happy to ship this excellent lens worldwide, but only to PF members with good feedback. No new members, please.

Priced to sell quickly:
Lens alone: $399 shipped to the Continental U.S. (Ships worldwide with comparable savings elsewhere) I have another purchase to pay for and too many macro lenses.

ALSO for sale: SOLD Pentax S80-120 Soft Case (pictured) .... $20 SOLD
Fits & protects many Pentax Lenses

As a previous customer of cheekygeek for a F100/2.8 Macro a year ago I can recommend the experience.

I am still a very happy camper, and the F100/2.8 is a very nice lens - it is a long term keeper for me.

Thank you for the nice comment Ross!

The Pentax soft case has been sold to JayBee451 and is on its way to Queensland today. Thank you Bjarne!

PS: The F100 macro is still available for some lucky Pentaxian. More wonderful examples of what this lens can do in this Pentax Forums thread.

That makes 2 of us.

What would the cost be to Aus?

The lens bag arrived safe and well the other day, Thanks
