[SOLD] FA* 300, FA Limiteds & Tamrons

Up for sale are several of my high end Pentax FA* & FA lenses as well as my two Tamrons. I baby all of my equipment so these are all in (LN-) condition. I have some feedbacks here and 100% feedback on eBay under username Sirfishalotz.
I'm only selling these to fund the purchase of a super telephoto lens.

Please do not bother to send low-ball offers because I won't bother to respond to them. Sorry, not interested in any trades.

I accept Paypal, eCheck or Money Order and will ship most places worldwide.

Hi-res image of each lens described below can be seen at:

Pentax Glass For Sale Photo Gallery by sirfishalot at pbase.com

First up is the SMC FA*300mm/4.5. This legendary is by far one of the sharpest primes ever produced by Pentax. It is very sharp wide open at f/4.5 and takes 1.4X and the F 1.7X very well with little image degradation. Complete with box, hood, original caps & original Pentax pouch. The only flaw is with the pouch itself were part of the velcro is a bit worn. Price: $850.00
SOLD

Second, SMC FA 43mm/1.9 Limited Black. -the third "Amigo" This lens has superb bokeh, excellent IQ and awesome build quality. I bought this new in 2006 and haven't even taken more than 100 shots with it. Includes front & rear caps & leather pouch. I can't find the box right now for the life of me. Price: $370.00

Next up, SMC FA77mm/1.8 Limited Black. Next to the FA*85/1.4 this is "the" portrait lens in smc glass. I purchased at the same time as the 43 above and it has seen equal little use sorry to say, but my loss is your gain. You won't be disappointed in any way with this lens. Again original caps & leather pouch, sorry box is hiding somewhere in the house. Price: $567.00

Tamron 28-75/2.8 XR-di LD. Awesome fast zoom. Folks often look to this one when they can't have the FA*28-70/2.8. Quality of this fine lens is well documented on the web forums. I'm the original owner. Include everything but the box and pouch (these didn't come with them). Price: $257.00

Tamron SP AF 90/2.8 Di Macro. This sweet 1:1 macro is sharp wide open and has gorgeous bokeh. I'm the second owner, but it was mint when I got it and is still in excellent condition. Includes front & rear caps, hood, leatherette lens pouch, box and manual.Price: $275.00
SOLD

Shipping via UPS, Fedex is not included in the prices above and will vary per buyer location.
Paypal fees(should buyers opt for this payment type) are included to the prices above. Payment by eCheck via Paypal can be used with a slight discount to the buyer and shipping will occur once funds have cleared.
USPS mail will be slightly more than usual if I have to go to the post office during my working hours.

Thanks for looking,
JayT

LOL building the stable back up eh? ;-) It must be kismet for you to find these two lenses together like this don't you think? I just had your old tammy90 on my k20d yesterday and this morning. Did you see the sky this morning around 7am? Pretty interesting for S.D. :-)

I just realized that Jay is selling all of MY favorite Pentax lenses. Well, I can't really speak for the FA*300, but I sure love the F*300 which I am told is similar.

LaRee,
I'm so glad that .Sam will be getting my FA*300 as it will be in very capable hands.
I'm regretfully selling the other lenses, fortunately I haven't used them enough to become attached to them (except the Tamron 90 & 28-75). Good thing I never got the 31 Ltd or I probably would never let the other two amigos go. I've been running dual system Pentax/Canon for a while now and these wonderful lenses have just not been getting the use that they deserve. I hanging on to my most prized FA* lenses in anticipation of a K1D or semi-pro body from Pentax. But right now a big white super telephoto has my name written all over it.

Hi Marc,
I've had my eyes on the 500/4 IS for some time now. Hey you know anyone looking for a really nice brand new mountain bike at a sweet price?
