[SOLD] (AUS) Pentax K 300 f/4 lens - for sale within Australia

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
(AUS) Pentax K 300 f/4 lens - for sale within Australia

Asking Price
$300 AUD

Item Description
Pentax K 300 f/4 lens.

This sale includes only the lens, front and rear caps, and the tripod mounting ring. Does not include camera or tripod.

This is a well-regarded Pentax manual-focus lens with built-in hood. This lens is in excellent cosmetic condition with just a few very minor scuff marks from careful use.

Comes with front and rear caps, and tripod mounting ring. No case or bag.

The optics are clear with no haze or fungus. I can find one single circular mark, about 1mm across, in the coating on the front lens. This has no effect on images. The lens has the usual couple of bits of dust on internal elements - again no effect on the IQ.

Mechanical condition is outstanding - the focus ring moves smoothly with no dragging, and the aperture ring is smooth with crisp click stops.

Lens Reviews here: Pentax Lens Review Database - 300mm F4

Bojidar's description here: K 300/4

Pricing: KEH has a couple of these listed in BGN condition for $215. This lens is a whole lot nicer than BGN - I rate it EXE on the KEH scale and Excellent on Adam's descriptive scale.

Thanks for the offer, but I don't think you'll find this lens in this condition for the price you offered!


Lens is still available: I am not looking for low offers - the price is firm.

Thanks. The collars are available on ebay for $25. It works well; makes the lens much easier to use.

If I didn't already have one I would buy it. All my Pentax gallery shots are from this lens. Check them out if you are curious regarding the performance of this lens.
