[SOLD] FS: SMC Pentax-D FA 1:2.8 100mm - Macro

My photography is ever changing, and it is time to change one of my staples since 2005. Here I am offering a used but great condition SMC Pentax-D FA 1:2.8 100mm Macro lens.

It was purchased by me new from B&H on December 28, 2005 (is there something in Auld Lang Syne about macro lenses?) and a copy of the invoice is included.

Of course the glass is excellent and the aperture blades work perfectly. It has never been opened or serviced, nor has it been mis-handled in any way. It includes the original front and back caps and the original hood. (Note that the hood has normal usage blemishes - not nicks but more just marks from use, the plastic is easy to blemish.) There is some dust around the inside of the barrel when you extend fully that if I really cared about I would brush out. It also has normal marks on the mount from taking the lens on and off.

I got the rebate for this lens, so the UPC is missing from the box (which will ship with the lens). I'll also include all the original papers, including a blank warranty card.

Asking $400 for the lens + actual costs for the shipping. If you want to pay via PayPal you'll have to cover the actual costs - otherwise money orders are the way to go. I prefer to ship UPS but will consider whichever method you prefer.

I'll post pictures of the lens and accessories as a reply to this thread.

In the meantime, an assortment of pictures is here:

Notably, some of my favorite pictures ever were taken with this lens, such as:

(Above taken at f/7.1 the day I got the lens!)

There are more on my Pbase For Sale gallery here.

I also uploaded a random shot that I did not intend for the sale, but it demonstrates how sharp this lens is even at f/2.8 (it also shows that the K10 doesn't have manual focus issues, but we figured that out, too!)
The whole shot:


And a 100% crop of the focus point:
