That is a great price for a great lens IMO. I bought mine 2nd hand from PF marketplace for more.

Hood missing and body's been badly scuffed. Price adjusted accordingly. This one's a driver, not a garage queen.

I have seen that lens at least 6 months ago on eBay. Doesn't seem to be in high demand.

in Australia they are very rare ( well I love mine even more than da*300 and will never sell) and always sell on eBay.
the hood could be a problem, I do not think that you can buy it any more

The seller's rating as "Excellent" looks dubious, but doesn't appear more than cosmetic damage.

As for the missing hood, some people seem to prefer a generic screw-in 67mm hood anyway: smc Pentax-FA* 1:4.5 300mm IF&ED Lens Hood Problem: Pentax SLR Talk Forum: Digital Photography Review

I'm not in the market for one, but it looks a good buy to me.
