Pentax 300mm F2.8 FA* lens

Item Description
I have owned this lens since 2003, and it is in near perfect condition but as I have no box I have to list it EXCELLENT. It should really be EX+ to Mint-. This lens has sat in my gear closet unused for two years, but is a spectacular performer. It comes with the factory leather lens hood, drop-in filter set, and the Pentax S135-540 lens wrap/bag, and all straps. List price new was $5200, and this is equivalent to a 450mm F2.8 for the Pentax DSLR's.

Oh boy she's a beauty! Gl with the sale as well.

(The mods should see about accumulating LBA photos from FS threads as a resource for the lens review database. More photos and lens entries would be sweet.)

I am prepairing myself for a 300/2.8 but this is a couple months too early financially, beside this one is getting drool all over it.

Looks like I'll have to put this lens up on eBay this week to gauge a wider field of interest, so it likely won't be available in a couple of months. Wish I could hold it for you!

Pentax 300mm FA* 2.8 still available...

Just to note that this great lens is still awaiting a good bid and a new home for 2010.

I will have the lens shade freed up before delivery.

I have both the old 250-600mm f5.6 FA* lens and the new 300/4 DA* lens so I haven't been carrying the 300 2.8 around. That's why its so clean...
