[SOLD] Pentax DA* 300mm Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax DA* 300mm

Asking Price
$950 US

Item Description
I'm just not using this lens enough to justify it sitting on the shelf. I bought it new from BH on 12/16/08 so it still has some warranty left. I have all the boxes, case, caps ect that came with it.

Photos taken with this lens (mostly with the Kenko 1.5x TC attached). If you want more photos let me know.

This one is without the TC

Are you the original owner of the item being sold?

Are you selling or trading this item?

Item Condition

Item Location

Shipping Charge
$15 USD

Shipping Services

Shipping Destinations
United States

Accepted Payment Types

Additional Details
Absolutely nothing wrong with it and I'll post photos of the lens later (I am finally pulling the trigger on selling it and if I don't do it right this second I may change my mind, hence no photos yet ).

Please send me a private message if interested in the item!

Man you guys are making it hard to sell this lens! Here are some photos of the lens.

and the only flaw is a little paint chip where the lens cap attaches:

Oh lowdy, I just returned my rented DA*300mm TODAY after 3 weeks of frantic snapping. I miss it already and seeing your spot is damned tempting. That 2nd shot with the Owl's mouth open is worth the price of admission alone. Beautiful! Please sell your lens before I decide that electricity and food are very over rated.

Really stunning shots! Maybe you should sell your photos, and that will make you keep the lens.

Oh man, this is exactly the lens I'm lusting for... putting away a little each month until I can magically have enough.

DA* 300mm is a lens with a hollow barrel (ie: no glass elements in the lens is smaller than the diameter of the lens) like the FA 50? If it is not only does it take great pictures, it looks amazing too!

Your pictures are beautiful!
I have the same lens and it is probably the last lens I would ever sell unless starving and homeless .
If you are a nature/bird photographer this lens is hard to beat, and it works wonderfully with the Tamron 1.4x Pz-AF or the Kenko 1.5x converters with minimal loss in IQ, as you show so well here.
Best of luck with the sale!
