Item Description
Hi everyone,

Selling the this rare beast bought time ago in ebay.
I'm not using the lens enough to justify keeping it .
Pentax-A* 400mm f/2.8 ED [IF] with both rear converters pentax-A (A-1.4X-L y A-2X-L).
Notes:
  • The lens has a little bit of dust/specks inside, but not much taking into account the age of the lens.
  • Both lens and box has some external wear, but internal crystals are fine. No fog, not fungus, no scratches, no oil.
  • The rear converter 1.4x has some dust inside and the rubber grip is unglued from metal (it can be easily fixed).
  • The rear converter 2x also has some dust inside, but less than the 1.4x.
  • All 3 of them works perfectly.
  • You will need a tripod to use the lens (6 kg).
  • The lens can be used with the pentax-F 1.7X, but the system should be very well stabilized with the tripod.

Prices: The price includes insurance shipping costs and PayPal fees.
  • Lens only: 2500€
  • Lens & both rear-converters: 2900€

Right now only sending to EU destinations, I'm trying to avoid customs (maybe change my mind later, sorry).
Anyway, customs fees (if any by destination mistake) is buyer's responsibility.

Samples folder (I think all at f/2.8):
  • Buda: A* 400mm + F1.7x (close focus)
  • Moon: A* 400mm
  • Moon_venus: A* 400mm + HD1.4x + F1.7x

Thanks for the "Europe Only" restriction--that spares me a good deal of agony.

No, no--that's ok. I don't want to muscle ahead of our European brethren. I actually had one once--tromped around with it on a monopod back when I was younger. It's a great optic but way more than I can handle now.

Thanks Weevil

Your suffering is over, sold on eBay.

I will close the thread when the lens arrives destination.

I will open a new thread only for the rear-converters

Thanks
