US Seller, glass looks clean. I'm actually a bit surprised it was still there this morning when I woke up.

It's an honor. I'm keeping the FA though (AF can come in handy sometimes).

For those interested in this lens, the Pentax lens hood (screw-on hood: RH-A77) really don't cut it.

I've just bought a Heliopan Long metal lens hood model 10270 (77mm straight sided, 47mm deep approx). Got it on-line from Teamwork Digital in London (teamworkphoto.com) who were fast & efficient and not expensive.

I've got the RH 77 Hood. It's ok, but as you say, it's really not as long as it could be. I shall have to look into a longer hood for it some day.

When that day comes, try the Heliopan I'm talking about.
