[SOLD] Nikon Lenses AF 300mm F4 ED, and AF 105 Micro 2.8

So I know this is a Pentax forum, but I made the mistake of buying a pair of Nikon lenses in anticipation of getting my D700. Problem is I changed my mind and got a Canon 5D mkII. Anyhow, I know there are a few people around that shoot Pentax and Nikon or maybe are moving to Nikon, or have Nikonian friends (I know who would be friends with a Nikonian right?) JK.

So I have an AF 300mm F4 ED in LN condition minus the box.
Included with it is the original case, lens cap, internal filter, tripod colar, manual, and rear cap.
Slide out lens hood and tripod collar are in great shape.
Glass is flawless no dust, no scratches, same store with the lens itself.


Next up is an AF 105 Micro 2.8
Also in perfect condition minus original box
The only flaw is that the lens gap has some sticky gunk on it from one of those straps, but it is easilly cleaned.
Glass is again perfect and sharp as a tack.
I mounted it to my K20D and used it in full manual mode and was very very impressed, it is as sharp as any glass I have ever owned.


I hate to register on a Nikon forum to post this, and ebay is a pain for everyone in my opinion, so make me some offers guys, I am willing to trade for canon gear, or maybe even something else I don"t know that I need. These lenses routinely go on ebay for $100 more than I am selling them and both of these are in amazing condition.

If only Pentax 300mm AF lens had a similar price tag ...

Curious about mounting the 105/2.8 macro on K20D. So you don't need any adapter? Will it lock properly? Sounds kinda cool.

Thanks and good luck

PM responded too, and I agree those that say Nikon and Canon lenses cost to much need to take a look at the used market, Pentax lenses go up in price, Canon and Nikons sink like a rock.

Nikon F-Mount will mount to K-Mount, they are slightly loose but will easilly mount. Obviously manual focus, but you can use basic metering and the aperture ring. I would not call the mount so secure that I would be comfortable picking up the camera with the 300 on it and not holding the 300 with the other hand though. I had the macro screw off once while shooting with it, but I had my other hand on it so i just tightened it back on.
