[SOLD] Pentax K 300mm f/4

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax K 300mm f/4

Asking Price
275$US

Item Description
I don't think that this lens needs introduction. I've decided to sell my copy, mainly because it doesn't fit my bag (which, i believe, is older than the lens... and i love it to tears...) It's a great lens, I came to appreciate it for the price paid... But my LBA is asking for something more compact...

The lens is in great condition with nothing worth of mentioning. Has some minor dust, but for the lens if this age it's nothing...

Comes with both caps. And b.t.w., this lens has a very useful built-in hood.

Pics of the lens are coming... But here are some shots i've taken with it a few days ago (all wide open):

Bump for this beauty. Even if I should restrain from bumps, since I want it badly.
Shipping to North America & Canada (sigh)...

I'm rather flexible, but for a lens this large, shipping across the ocean will just kill it...

I'd like to help you out Alexeyga but I already own a K 300/4. Nice lens. I've no connection to the seller but here's a sample of what I've managed to do with my copy of this optic.





There is an entire thread devoted to this lens for those who might be interested.

Thanks Tom, in all honesty i'd keep the lens if I was able to fit it my 30-years-old domke... But i can only bring either this and a couple of primes, risking to drop the K300 while not in use... or just leave the 300 at home.... And for some sentimental reaons, the lens will go before the bag... As far as results go, i'm pretty happy. For my purpose and for the price, this lens is a steal!

Lens is still available... must be the crisis...

Some of the later shots taken with it (no PP, straight from the camera JPGs):







Just had to post that one:


That being said... i think i'll keep the lens... IT will be hard to beat for the price... I can't quite afford the DA*200 just yet...
