Item Description
Selling my favorite lens ever, the mighty A 400/5.6. It's a terrific lens and I've made bushels of photos with it, but I'm not longer shooting wildlife with Pentax, so in the interest of reducing my photographic gear I'm letting this go.

The lens is in good overall condition. There are a number of marks on the body. There is naturally dust in the lens, but no haze and no oil on the aperture blades. There are cleaning marks on the front element that have no impact on image quality. The A400 has been ultimately reliable for me with smooth, precise focusing action.

The lens has been out maybe a dozen times in light precip, usually with a light towel or bag on it for protection. It has never been dropped, left in the car overnight, etc. Comes from a clean, smoke-free home.

Included are front and rear caps.

Asking $275 + shipping, or best offer.

Thanks! It really is an excellent lens. I hate having to part with it, but I really do need to reduce my kit.

A few more smaples...
