[SOLD] Pentax F* 300/4.5 300mm F4.5 Lens Mint In Box

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax F* 300/4.5 300mm F4.5 Lens Mint In Box

Asking Price
1150 USD (SOLD!)

Item Description
Selling a like new condition F*300/4.5 lens, known as one of the best 300mm lenses ever made by all camera/lens makers. I won't say too much about this lens, you should know how good it is if you are looking at this ad

The lens is in absolute mint condition w/ almost no sign of use at all, except only a couple of tiny paint loss at edges of the tripod collar knob. You won't be able to find a used F*300/4.5 lens as in better condition than this one. Glass is like new w/ no mark at all, had filter on since day one. The lens is as good as it can get for a used lens I think. It comes w/ original lens pouch (never used, like new), box, and a high quality Pentax original SMC Skylight filter too, which is hard to find by itself. All the original docs w/ warranty card are still intact as shown in the first photo.

Selling the lens due to lack of usage. Need cash urgently for some family issues (otherwise I won't be selling it).

That is the cleanest F*300 I have ever seen. Amazing that the box, papers, even the lens pouch is all here. What a wonderful treat for some lucky buyer.

Free bump for a great example of an outstanding lens.... For those of you who may be waffling, this lens is very "hand holdable" on a K10 or K20. As it is very sharp wide open, I am even able to hand hold this inside in gloomy swimming pools with acceptable results.

From the pics, this lens looks cosmetically pristine - rare, as the light colour paint often chips and the marks really show.

Good luck with your sale Frank.

Thanks Dave. It's a great lens indeed, and I use it wide open almost all the time
