FA* 300mm 2.8 for $3999

Pentax FA* 300mm f/2.8 ED IF Lens 300 f2.8 SMC FA Star | eBay

It appears that this lens is missing it's filter pack. Frankly I got a set with each my 3 big FA* lenses, and I've never used any of them. It does look to be in especially pristine condition.

I've spent a small fortune with this seller. He cares a great deal about the lenses, and stands behind what he sells.

IMO, He's about $600 too expensive on this lens, but if you really want one, where are you going to get one? Especially in this nice of shape.

If you're thinking about buying, I suggest you ask him to perform a focus test if he can. As I've come to understand, many of these lenses require a substantial AF adjustment.

Well somewhere between the photos and the listing some gremlins got ahold of something cause you can see it in the straight lines that are suddenly interrupted. It almost looks like when a hologram starts to fade in and out right before it disappears. Maybe its not even real??
I see these kind of "anomalies" all the time in panoramic image stitching. They look like uncorrected laplacian blending (old skool technology) and highly unlikely that they are from human hands. Probably focus blending... and some ham-handed attempts at fixing the botches.

Here's an example of similar blending errors (look down) in this pano I shot on a deck while making a point (in another forum) about excessive HDR and bad blending of pole panos. (Please, please note that I would never intentionally let a pano this bad "into the wild" except to make a point about bad craft. I usually do much, much better!)
