Pentax F* 300mm F4.5 Price reduction Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax F* 300mm F4.5

Asking Price
700.00 USD

Item Location
Utrecht (Netherlands)

Item Description
The F*300 is a wonderful tele. Photos made with it have something special. Great color, sharpness bokeh and micro-contrast. Selling due to also having an FA* variant which is optically the same. Both are compact and relatively light for a 300mm, I shoot handheld with it quite often. I'm keeping the FA* because of the slightly lighter weight and bulk. Most people prefer the F* because of the integrated lens hood and tripod mount however.

Great on any Pentax, especially FF. Build quality is superb.The reviews speak for themselves.

This copy includes the tripod mount, original front and rear caps. It has obvious signs of use to the white paint. Technical and functional condition is sound. Some internal dust normal for this age.

There are two very thin scratches to the front element near the edge. I can't see any effect on the photos made. Because the front element is recessed quite deep in the lens even without extending the hood it doesn't lead to any problems.

Any questions please ask.

Great lens - works great on K-1 in both FF and crop mode. With this, a 1.4x TC, and crop mode on the K-1, you can get to 420 mm (630mm FF equivalent) in a very compact package with very good IQ - hard to find that anywhere else (Pentax or elsewhere).
