BGN SMC Pentax-FA* 600mm f4 @ KEH
Posted By: Joshua A, 11-04-2014, 07:31 PM

I don't know if anyone has seen or posted this yet, but there seems to be a 'SMC Pentax-FA* 600mm f4' for sale @ KEH.com for $3,495.00 USD in BGN condition, not hood but with caps, here is the link to the lens.

https://www.keh.com/241157/pentax-600mm-f-4-smc-f-ed-if-k-mount-autofocus-lens-150-43-drop-in

Sorry if this has been posted, but this is a pretty damn rare lens, and KEH seems to be an incredibly reputable lens reseller.

That seems a very good deal - 600mm, f4, with AF, and FA* quality. If I had the loose change...

It originally sold with a dedicated trunk though - pity if that is not included.

bargain for KEH is better than 95 percent of ebay "Great condition". It prob has a bit of brassing, but I dont think you will ever see a 600 FA* ever at this price range from a reputable dealer that allows returns.

The description reads that it is an F* not an FA*.

Yeah, this showed up last week, I'm surprised it is still there as the price is right. I thought about it, but I don't want to carry the weight. Plus I'd have to put up my other big lenses for sale.

Weird. Still listed though. If you buy something via the website, it goes away immediately...

I wish I could afford to feel bad because I missed out on this. A rare find.

They probably still have it. Maybe someone that works there was out playing with it. Someone can always buy it and see if they ship it or not...
