[SOLD] Pentax-A* 200mm F/2.8 (Worldwide)

Pentax-A* 200mm F/2.8

Asking Price
$675

Item Location
Lens is in the US, not China!!
Ann Arbor, MI

Item Description
Pentax-A* 200mm F/2.8 in excellent condition.
Lens glass is excellent, with only a bit of dust inside. Lens body is also excellent overall - the only thing worth mentioning is that a small part of the green band around the hood is missing (less than an inch - see photo)

Comes with both caps - but no box, etc. Hood is the slide-out type.

The lens is amazingly sharp, and does not show fringing even at extreme contrast situations. Bokeh is also very nice.
Using it is a joy - manual focus is a breeze since focus barrel is easy to turn, but still well damped, and the lens snaps into focus; aperture ring is also buttery smooth - if that matters to you.
I'm selling this lens because I don't have a good application for it - so it's just sitting in my shelf.

Oh, and sorry for the mediocre pics don't have much time to set everything up...

As for trades, I'm entertaining an idea of getting a K-7; if you have one for trade, PM me!

Green band not missing

I don't think the missing inch of green band on the lens hood is really "missing". My copy, and all other copies I've seen, looks just the same. Don't ask me why, but I think it looked like that when it left the factory.
For those thinking about this lens - buy it! It's just an amazing piece of glass, and it can be used for concert photography in low light thanks to f2.8. And no, I haven't got any connection with seller pbo. But I love the lens, so this is a free bump!

Thanks Kjell! I thought it was odd the band didn't cover the whole circle - so I mentioned that
