Pentax 300mm f/2.8 SMC FA* IF ED AF Lens FROM KEH on Ebay
Posted By: dmort, 01-03-2013, 08:58 PM

Pentax 300mm F 2 8 SMC FA If Ed AF Lens 3038363 Free Shipping 12128 | eBay

Spotted this on ebay - couldn't find it on KEH's website but sometimes I find their listings of Pentax gear a bit wonky.

Anyways, figured someone might be interested!

I hate the time difference .. complicates things... Its *mine* that is relisted , I just hope that the JetCarrier guys are pushing the button...

And in the same second they sent me the confirmation.. It is mine. (How many of you know the feeling I have now..? ) Bring out the cognac..

Ah, thanks for the clarification. I thought that might be the case, I'm relieved again! Enjoy the pleasure of anticipating the lens!

Just beautiful - looks just like new.

I see however this is another high end Pentax lens that is severely off balance with the tripod foot. Such a great optical design - why didn't they put more thought into the tripod foot?

Its not that bad with the K5 attached , but I see your point. Look at the F*300 f.4.5 and the tripod foot there.. and thats a light lens compared to the beast

Nice! Hope you got a good one You probably know, but the focus ring pops forward and back for manual/auto focus.

Yepp , I have the F*300 f.4.5 also , same thing there. And my earlier 28-75 f.2.8 . Seems like I have to do some adjustments in the menu for focus.
