FA*250-600 on FleaBay
Posted By: panoguy, 11-09-2012, 11:39 AM

$6000 is a lot of change, but there is a "Make and Offer" button...

SMC Pentax FA* 5.6/250-600 IF ED #3013827 | eBay

It even has "faux natural woodgrain finish!" Go to, well-heeled Pentaxians!

This would be a pretty good deal if the stupid wooden finish wasn't there...

Like a seriously scratched up hood? That silver FA paint is notoriously scratch-prone, but I can't imagine that anyone who'd spend $6k on a lens wouldn't call up Pentax for a replacement hood someday...

I've been watching this one since it was listed. There's one offer pending, but it's not mine .

I need two more lenses before my collection is really, yes really, complete. This one and the FA* 200 macro.

I don't have a cool $6,000 sitting around right now, so if one of you would kindly buy this and sell it to me down the road I'd appreciate it.

I was recently let go due to budget problems. I didn't get a severance, or I'd have sent the seller my offer!

Severance? Consider the purchase a long-term investment.

Not worse than anywhere else.

Hilarious!

Sometimes I think there'd be a huge market for anyone that finds a way to refinish those FA* silver lenses at a reasonable price. At least the seller isn't trying to pass off the woodgrain as the ultra rare "Town and Country" edition.

Fake wood? Why would someone do that to something so valuable?
