Pentax FA 77 - auction on ebay Australia
Pentax FA 77mm F 1 8 AF Lens | eBay

Auction finishes Th 12 Feb 00:45 AEDST (ie 45 mins after midnight Wed). One for the snipers.

If you miss this, see the Gumtree ones listed above.

Pentax-F 135mm f2.8 For those collecting lenses with a view to FF here's another gem on Gumtree that's been listed for a while:
Pentax-F 135mm f2.8 AF prime portrait lens | Digital Camera Accessories | Gumtree Australia Knox Area - Rowville | 1058931568 asking $360

Look at the reviews for this lens: SMC Pentax-F 135mm F2.8 [IF] Reviews - F Prime Lenses - Pentax Lens Reviews & Lens Database
It's one of the highest-rated of all Pentax lenses. Bound to rocket in price with FF camera.
FYI that 77Ltd is a MIJ Assembled in Vietnam number.

Expensive, maybe better price on ebay UK.
You can't be serious.

If you are, it would be more helpful to post a link.

Good get @Boysana.

Some more interesting K-mount offers on Gumtree:
Sigma 50-500 (Bigma) asking $600: Sigma 50-500mm Lense Suit Pentax | Digital Camera Accessories | Gumtree Australia Fremantle Area - Fremantle | 1071638479
Sigma 150-500 asking $700: www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/padbury/digital-cameras/sigma-150-500mm-f5-6-3-apo-hsm-os-pentax-mount/1071452478 A recent post showed what can be done with this lens: www.pentaxforums.com/forums/115-pentax-k-5/215441-k-5-sigma-50-500-os.html
Sigma 12-24 asking $549 neg: www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/capalaba/digital-camera-accessories/sigma-12-24mm-f4-5-5-6-ex-dg-for-pentax-near-new-condition-/1071316297 This lens doesn't get a lot of attention. Compared to other ultrawides it is bulky, heavy and slow. But it performed very well in the PF comparative tests. And its special quality is that it is a full-frame lens. Likely to be in demand as a cheaper alternative to the forthcoming DFA ultrawide on FF

Seems there are quite a few good Pentax deals in Australia. I got a nice Sigma 8-16 from there. Even with shipping it was much cheaper than anything I have seen in the US,

The traffic used to be the other way when our dollar was above $US1. Now it is down in the mid-seventies (about 75c US), gear here is much better value. Of course if something goes wrong, there may be additional cost in returning an item.

The other factor is that Australia is a much smaller market, and Pentax has a small share. So sometimes Pentax items attract little buyer interest. That explains some of the bargain deals above (including my FA 43 for $A401).

Australian sellers on PF generally sell worldwide to broaden the pool of buyers. I recently sold a lens in the marketplace to a member in Scandinavia. Even with shipping it was worth his while.

I wonder if you were the buyer of the 8-16 mentioned earlier in the thread?
