A* 1200/8 -- the ultimate Pentax rarity
Posted By: baro-nite, 03-10-2013, 05:41 AM

Very RARE Pentax A Star SMC 1200mm 1200 mm F8 F 8 Ed Lens | eBay

At US$8,000 I expect this one will sell fairly quickly.

It was only up for 3 or 4 days and IIRC the listing was for a month.
I don't know what's going on. Maybe someone did pony up the money, as it now says: "This listing was ended by the seller because the item is no longer available."

There's your answer.

There's your answer.
But it's really not an answer if you think about it. It could mean A) the lens sold via an private offer, B) as baro-nite suggested, it sold locally, C) the seller decided not to sell or D) someone stole the lens from the seller. The fact that it is no longer available leaves a whole bunch of possible scenarios.

It's not really that important, is it? Just use your imagination and choose your own adventure. I know I've got more important things to obsess about.
