Pentax-A* 645 300mm F4 ED [IF]

Hello,

I read here some of your opinions concerning Pentax-A* 645 300mm F4 ED [IF] and want to ask if some of you have any experience with this lens at 645Z.
I also could't find this lens on B&H web site. Do you have any idea from where I can buy it and the real price.

Thank you !

A* (manual focus) lenses are discontinued. Here are user reviews of the lens:
SMC Pentax-A* 645 300mm F4 ED [IF] Reviews - 645 Telephoto Primes - Pentax Lens Reviews & Lens Database

It seems that most people got their copy for around $500. I think the actual price will depend on condition.

On the Marketplace, it's sold for $780, 650€, $550, $525, $475, and $250 (poor cosmetic condition) over the course of the past 4 years.

Think this is realistic , if it is not mint, for example some scratches in the painting, but optically very good (no scratches on the lenses, no haze, no fungus, just some dust inside), 500$ should be sufficient. If you are looking for on that is mint condition, it is likely to be up to 800.
You can get even cheaper ones if looking for those that have small problems. For example, a scratch in the front lens does not really matter on a telephoto lens, but the price will be much lower.
