These don't come up often in Australia, but here is another one also asking $A750:
Pentax DA* 300mm f4 ED[IF] SDM | Lenses | Gumtree Australia Newcastle Area - Adamstown Heights | 1125020546

The seller is also offering a DA 1.4x TC for $350 ( a rarity), a DA 21 for $250, and a DA 35 f2.8 Macro for $300. That's three quarters of a great kit - just add a DA 70, FA 77 or DFA 100.

Don't know the seller; no connection.

But not suspiciously low, IMO. Looks genuine to me.

I watch Gumtree a fair bit, and these are exceptions. I'd say that overall the prices asked for Pentax gear are noticeably higher this year than last year. (That is putting aside the numpties who want more for a k-x than the price of a demo K-50 with warranty from C R Kennedy. The Kerrigan "Tell 'em they're dreamin'" Prize could be shared between the person asking $520 for a k-m and the one asking $400 for a *ist.)

Over the last few years I've scored some very good buys from Gumtree, or ebay, or Camera Market (e.g. FA43 for $400, K-3 with 18-135 for $850), but the bargains are more rare. FF lenses particularly, of course. But it can't just be because of FF, because non-FF lenses like the 18-135 and APS-C camera bodies are affected too. I wouldn't mind a second K-3 but people want more than $900 for body only; it should be more like $650-700.
