PM received and replied.

Lens still available. Now available to world wide buyer. Since lens is quite heavy, it may be expensive to ship overseas. So international shipping is more.

I'd be interested in seeing pics shot with the lens. Especially wide open vs, say, f8, at both extremes.

Maybe you should also enter it in the database, seeing as it's missing.

Some examples

Will add more. Here are some taken before. One of the other reasons to sell the lens is that I take photos of my kids. They are rarely still. It is not easy to shoot with a manual long lens.

The two were taken at f6.7 and at the 200mm side. The second is 100% crop. Again, keep in mind that I am shooting a moving target, which is the main cause of the blur.

More examples

I found that one other reason was that my K10D has problem with focusing. I have added focus screen which does not help. I can use the auto focus function can bypass the problem.

To address many questions that I got, I have not tested the lens thoroughly. It is well built. But I found the image is on the soft side, which may not be a bad thing for shooting in the sunlight. The resolution is decent, even at the 200mm side. Here are more examples.

Today, it is overcast outside. So I add one level contrast and sharpness to my K10D.

1. 200mm f3.8 (largest aperture on the 200mm side)
2. 100% crop
3. 75mm f6.7
4. 75mm f2.8
