Pentax FA* 250-600mm F5.6 + Tripod + Gimbal head Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax FA* 250-600 F5.6 + Tripod + Gimbal head

Asking Price
It'd be nice to get $10,000.00 AUD for it all, but the price is definitely negotiable.

Anyone who buys the lot for $10,000 gets a Pentax K-5 dSLR thrown in.

Item Location
Melbourne (Australia)

Item Description
Getting out of the Pentax system, and time to get rid of my last piece of Pentax glass.
For sale is my Pentax FA* 250-600 F5.6 lens. Good condition optically, but has a few marks here and there cosmetically from use. Comes with:
- metal carry trunk. The inside foam is not original, came like that when I bought it
- rear lens cap
- front lens cover. The front leather piece is gone and came like that when I bought the lens.
- Pentax strap
- drop in filter set

Sample photos taken with the lens here.

Also available is a large Benro carbon tripod (C3780T) and Benro GH-2 Gimbal Head w/ PL-100 arca-swiss compatible quick release plate.

Are you the original owner of the item being sold?

Are you selling or trading this item?

Item Condition (Key)

Shipping Destinations

Shipping Charge
Buyer to pay actual charges. It will be expensive. Lens & case alone when I got it shipped to me was 28lb (13kg).

Shipping Services
Fully Insured shipping

Accepted Payment Types

Return Policy & Additional Details
No Returns unless vastly different from item description.

Please send me a private message if interested in the item!

There's a link to sample photos taken with lens in the first post.

The rear element is quite recessed, so I couldn't get a photo with the rear element itself, but hope these photos will suffice:
