Nice price on an excellent, excellent lens.

Don't listen to the couple of reviews in the DB saying it's not sharp. The two copies I have had have both been among the sharpest AF lenses I have used.

My thoughts as well, I got mine recently for a $100 more. I like mine a lot, it's very sharp.

Dont see them that often but well, there's another newly listed one, this time with bidding started at $0.99 (from Thailand).

Pentax AF SMC FA 135mm F2 8 If 135 2 8 Lens Mount | eBay

Same seller has a DA35, DA40, FA50 & DA 70.

I don't know the seller but they appear to have sold about 140 lenses in the last 12 months and 1 set of "Datsun STANZA" tail lights all with postive feedback.

A few others in HK or JP having the FA135 for $400 - $500 "buy it now" have been there a while.

There's also a couple on KEH including a BGN for $379.

I have the A version and it's a fantastic lens, so I expect the FA to be at least as good... this lens is still very useful on APS-C, to me at least. I put it on when I'm street shooting and I want to get details of monuments or other things. Plus it's fantastic to take pictures of my kids playing from a distance. Sharp, fantastic colors and rendering, the pictures just have that extra quality you can't get from a zoom. The A version is very easy to focus so I don't think I have LBA for the AF version.
