F*300mm f4.5 in Australia

Item Description
OK well I am selling up all of my Pentax gear and so I will start with the best.. (more to come in the next few days)

F*300/4.5 in excellent condition, no optical or mechanical problems, no dust inside or fungus. The lens works great and produces those wonderful shots you would expect from this lens.. Shutter is snappy and clean.

As you can see in the picture the tripod mount is included, the only cosmetic problem to speak of is a little paint chipped underneath where the tripod collar attaches to the lens (can see in the second picture)..

Shipping is included for Australia, for other regions (UK, US, Canada) I will cover insurance but you will have to pay shipping (I will get quotes on request)..

Nice lens! Great price too! I'd take it if I didn't have one yet.

Someone grab this please, before I buy it for a backup ...

This was the lens we spotted together 2 years ago.

Sure this is a legendary lens. Yet it is a bargain!

Just want to add, as it has been asked, this is an autofocus lens on all pentax DSLR..

Ohh and the hood is built in, the front section unscrews and slides forward screwing (locking) into place.

EDIT: I have also been asked for sample shots I took with this particular lens... If you go to the Pentax Gallery link below all my shots marked as taken with the F*300 were taken with this actual lens...

Peter,

No firm buyer yet, but there is interest from a number of people.. just trying not to rush it, I understand it is a big purchase for a lot of people..

WARNING OFF TOPIC

I have been asked a lot what I am doing/thinking: Well I am selling a lot of gear as I bought (very cheap through work) an Olympus e3, 12-60 2.8-4 and 50-200 2.8-3.5...

I am not selling everything, I am keeping the K10d body, macro and 10-20 (plus I can borrow roentarre's lenses LOL), if they ever release the DA35/2 I will most likely buy that, but my general day-today camera will be the Oly.. you can all throw stones now ;-) (only j/k please dont LOL)..
