Item for Sale
Exceptional A* 1200 f8

Asking Price
8500.00 EUR or 9500 $ for USA

Item Location
TOULOUSE (France)

Item Description
You don't dream, it is a lens that you'll find once upon a lifetime. I think than not more than 12 copies have been made. Don't miss the opportunity to have this unique lens.
With the future Pentax Full Frame attached, it will be a killer.
I have had a lot of fun with this lens, but cause of job cuts in my company, I'm obliged to sell it, which is a pity.
The lens is in excellent condition, there is absolutely no scratch on front element, which is anyway protected by an original 150 mm Pentax filter.
There are very little marks on the paint.
With good technique, this lens is able to deliver absolutely outstanding pictures; no comprison with an FA*600 + 2X converter.
It is provided with :
Its original Pentax aluminium case.
An arka-swiss plate
A complete set of camo and protections - see picture - mandatory for wildlife, as this giant lens is very visible instead.
Front and rear pouches
Drop in B+W UV+Haze filter
I have taped the handle to improve handling and avoid any accidental drop, the lens is heavy.







An example of a picture I made with it. Camera is K5iis, f11, 1/400, iso500 - winter light conditions

And a crop

The following conversation just happened:

"Hey Jenny, so, there's this lens--HOLD ON LET ME FINISH!--there's this lens that someone is selling on Pentax Forums. It's extremely rare and they don't make it anymore."

....

"And he's only asking for 10,000 Euros."

Jenny:

Between this lens or this other one.


Seriously, I read the couple of reviews on this forum (one of them by the seller in 2013), and I can see this lens is truly special. I would only love to see more photos taken with this lens.

Good luck with that... the new pending arrival will have priority in her eyes I'm sure.

Decision made... the Noctilux doesn't come in a K mount as far as I know.
