I didn't missed it. Was it the one for sale in Australia which seemed to have been used a lot?
The one from Australia was too expensive, about 10 000AUD or? But the condition was not so bad was it? Anyway this is not the one im thinking about, its from Taiwan.
Perhaps you know the answers of my questions?

As an information for the buyer: The "tripod mount arm bracket"s of the FA* 600 and the FA* 250-600 might be compatible (and probably still available from Pentax Japan):
Thanks, but they are unfortunately not available anymore.

Im happy that it seems everyone missed the piece of an FA*250-600mmon Ebay some weeks ago

Clinton, you seem to know, may i ask (or enyone else). Is it the same on Fa* 600 and 250-600mm that the front "filter" is a part of the construction and therefor must be attached on the lens to work properly? I also read somewhere that the rear filter also must be in use, cause of the optics construction? Is this correct? I cant find any difference in my pictures if i use them or not.

The 250-600 doesn't have a front filter as part of it's optical formula, although you can buy the front filter from Amazon to protect your glass.

FYI: The 600/4 and 250-600 are different sized front elements.
