Pentax FA 100-300 F4.7-5.8 (WITH HOOD) - Full Frame, light sharp tele!

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax FA 100-300 F4.7-5.8 - WITH HOOD and filter.

Asking Price
90 USD

Item Location
Adelaide, SA (Australia)

Item Description
Full frame image circle and VERY lightweight (the DA 55-300 and DA 50-200 will not be compatible with full frame)
100-300mm lightweight zoom for DSLR and film cameras, sharpest of the two similar 100-300 Pentax zooms of the time and notably better IQ than the FA 80-320.
Comes with caps, UV skylight filter AND an additional metal hood - this lens does not come with a hood otherwise

In good condition, light minor scratches to finish as shown in images, very light weight, especially for this zoom-range and a bargain priced lens.

$90 USD or $130 Australian Dollars - best offer.

Being sold as I have needed to change systems and am selling all my Pentax gear, lenses, DSLR etc, having sold many exceedingly well looked after DA* and FA ltd lenses through this forum.

Bump for price drop!

Very lightweight telephoto option - AND its FULL FRAME.
(And I say this comparing it to my 'light' Canon 70-300L which weighs nearly 3 times as much, despite being the lightest Canon L telephoto zoom out there!)

This comes with an aftermarket hood - for telephoto lenses its surprising that this model didnt come with one and review comments suggest that the contrast and clarity is definitely improved when using a hood (as expected)
