FA*600 f4 Pentax. Price reduced Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
FA*600 f4 Pentax. Yes !

Asking Price
5800.00 EUR

Item Location
Toulouse (France)

Item Description
Yes it is the genuine Pentax FA*600 f4 lens.
I own this wonderful lens for 5 years now, and I have got the most I can from this lens for wildlife.
Optically it is a gem; you have to stop it down a little bit, IQ peaks at f8. From the comparison I have made with a friend FA*600 f4, my copy is obviously better, and it largely deserves the 24 Mpix sensor of the K3. Of course, no scratch on lens, 150 mm original Pentax protection filter to protect the huge front element. No fungus.
Cosmetically there are minor marks on the silver paint - which is fragile. All the time I have used this lens, anyway, it was protected by camo tape, neoprene and camo cover to hide it and break the form factor.
A lot of pictures shot with this lens has been liked in the 300 mm + lens club.
Provided, original aluminium case, original front cap and rear cap, drop-in filter set - not really useful -, arka-swiss plate
See pictures below.
For one week only, it will be in exclusive sale on this forum, if no serious offer, it will go on ebay

I'm not convinced money is really an issue :
interest rates are historically low - 1,5 % in europe
A lens of this class has a very low value decrease over time, if any.
If you keep it 5 years and sell it 5000 euros, the cost will be 200 euros per year or less than 20 euros per month. A fraction of what I pay for my cellular phone...
