Pentax 400mm f2.8ED(IF) Lens with Rear Converter-A 2X-L

This lens is in excellent condition. Included is a front SMC Pentax PF 145mm filter made in Japan. It has only been removed for cleaning. The lens ships in it's original trunk (pictured) which also includes the original Lens serial number card from Asahi Optical in Tokyo.
Asking price including shipping is $3550.

Also included: Rear Converter-A 2X-L with Chinon case.

I offer PayPal buyer protection transactions over $100 USD. I also offer other payment options for the buyer.

It's probably listed in body parts...not dollars. Might be worth it, though.

Wow! I never knew Pentax has this massive lens. Perhaps declining market demand made this product extremely rare. Good luck on the sale.

Near to that lens my Sigma AF 400mm f/5.6 APO Tele Macro is just little and weak as a newborn. If I could I would buy that 400mm f/2.8, but I could only pay in easy installments.. :-)

Oh dear, get behind me Satan, repeat after me you have no use for this lens, repeat you have no use for this lens.

Good luck with the sale of this fine optic.

Sexy. I need this lens even less than I need the FA* 300 2.8, but that fact in no way inhibits the puddle of drool from forming on my desk as I write.

I still have mine. and no near term plans to part with it. The fast f/2.8 speed has "put a converter on me" written all over it. It is simply a fantastic foundation for a converter
for reaching way out there.
