[SOLD] SMC Pentax-FA J 75-300mm F4.5-5.8 AL BLACK Like New In Box

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
SMC Pentax-FA J 75-300mm F4.5-5.8 AL BLACK Like New In Box

Asking Price
$125 USD -- SOLD!

Item Description
Got this lens in a package deal several month ago. Receipt dated Oct 3rd 2008. Thought I'd use it for travel and to the zoo when I don't want to carry heavy lenses. But never really used it at all.

Got far too many lenses in the dry cabinet, better let go some not-used ones.

The lens looks like new w/ no obvious sign of use. It is very clean inside and out, only has a couple of tiny dusts inside which shouldn't affect IQ at all. Comes w/ original front and rear caps, a UV filter which was on since the first day, and a third party flower shape lens hood. Original receipt and warranty card will be included too.

This is the rare BLACK version, which has been sold for higher prices than the silver ones due to its black finishing.

Here you can find some users' reviews about this lens:
Pentax Lens Review Database - 75-300mm F4.5-5.8 AL

The average price from the reviewers is $161USD. Only asking for $125USD plus shipping.

I was nearly able to steal one of these from a guy on Craigslist recently for a little less. A guy gave him five dollars more than what we had in agreement.
I have to believe this lens would produce better images than the Pentax F 100-300 I use sometimes and really hoped for the best.
Alas...

I wish I could get some bargains from Craigslist too. Sometimes the prices over there are really much lower than elsewhere. Wish they'd deal w/ us non Canadians. But even so, high shipping cost from there is another issues.

I had an F100-300 before, it's quite a bit bigger than this FAJ 75-300, and weights almost twice of this one too. I didn't keep it long 'cause it's too big and heavy to my taste.

BTW, the lens is still available
