Item Description
This one is real beat up. Lens barrel has lots of battle scars, front element has big visible scratches. Lens cap has about an inch missing on the inner edge, so it's not real secure. Focus ring is smooth, but does feel a little tight sometimes. I took test shot of it at F8, and it still beat my FA 100-300mm F4.7 zoom lens handily. Pics of lens and K-x RAW->JPEG conversion 100% crop of test shots taken by the lens at F4, F4.5, F5, F5.6, F8, F11, and F16 shown here:

Picasa Web Albums - jc505 - Pentax A* 300...

I imagine lots of sharp pics can still be had if you use it in its sweet spot range, which I think is between F5.6 and F11 based on the test shots.

Thanks for looking.

Here's full size picture of the hummingbird:

I'm not sure why when I click on the "magnifying glass" it doesn't go to full size. Anyone have idea why?

Thanks.
