[SOLD] FA* 300mm/4.5, Tokina ATX 80-400mm/4.5-5.6

Up for sale are two telescope lenses in my pentax collection, FA* 300mm/f4.5 and Tokina 80-400mm/f4.5-5.6. Getting fewer and fewer chances to hang out and shoot with them recently and decide to let them go.

(i) FA* 300mm/f4.5: this is a legendary lens lens......needn't say much about it. Glass is perfect, without any scratches/blemishes/dusts/fungus. AF is fast and accurate. There are several small paint-off on the lower part of lens body (as can be seen in the picture), other than that the lens is in great cosmetic condition. Original lens hood and (non-original) lens caps would be also included. Ask for $960 + transaction fee (if any) and actual postage. SOLD

(ii) Tokina ATX 80-400mm/f4.5-5.6 AF lens for pentax mount: lens is in mint condition. Glass and body are very clean without any marks. It's a small lens (for a zoom in this range) with very high build-quality and takes sharp images even wide open from 80-300mm; it's a little bit soft at 400mm when f=5.6, but would be improved substantially if stop down to f=8. Would include the original lens hood, caps and pouch. Ask for $420 + transaction fee (if any) and actual postage. SOLD

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

thanks for the bump, . Below please find some test shots taken by the tokina lens. The first was taken at ~200mm, while the second at 400mm. The third one shows 100% crop.

400mm wide open

Also, at harsh conditions, wide open images at 400mm may show some CA but still quite usable. Below please see an example.
