F 100/2.8 Macro *FURTHER REDUCED*

Looking to expand my in other directions, and selling some gear that doesn't see enough use to justify keeping it. Hoping to find a good home for this beauty.

Pentax-F 100/2.8 macro - $300 shipped
Another optically brilliant lens. Sharp, great colors and contrast, smooth bokeh. AF hunted some on my old K5, but I suspect that was due to a dusty AF sensor, as I've had no issues on my new K3. AF is fast and accurate (note it has a focus limiter, a feature absent in later series models of this lens, which makes general purpose shooting much easier). Again, optically, functionally, and aesthetically really no issues. Great condition. Bought used from another PF member a few months ago.

(lots more examples of what this lens can do can be found at Pentax Photo Gallery)

Shipping: USPS Priority Mail, insured, prefer CONUS but will consider others on case-by-base basis (buyer pays extra shipping cost)
Payment: Paypal
Returns: within 3 days of receipt only if item not as described, buyer pays return shipping

I have the same tripod and can't praise it enough ... the build quality, top notch materials and great design make it one of the best values in support.

Agreed, Hawki, the feisol gear is of top-notch quality yet affordable. While it's light at 3.5 lbs total, I'm itching to try something really light, hence the sale. But I'll miss it, for sure.

Bump! Price reduced further on the Zeiss. Surprised at the lack of interest here...
