Soo tempted, but stretching the limits of my budget right now. This is a real dream lens, though (for those who cannot even dream to be able to afford the Pentax * 200 macros, at least!).

Hope it goes quickly, to remove the temptation...

No. Good point-Thanks!
If it was I'd be charging a lot more for it.

Mike,

I'd take it off your hands... if I didn't already have one. I, too, am a huge fan of this lens... it's soooo sharp... here's a few more images for your sell sheet.

What is the cosmetic wear on the lens? can you show in close up pics please?

HSM version only differs from this one in the AF motor?... I'm assuming it has the same optics.

Here you go:

There is slight scuffing on the lens hood. No other scratches or marks on the lens barrel or optics.

Yes, same optics as on Nik*n - just not HSM motor.
