HU Pentax FA 600mm f/4 on eBay
Posted By: Abbazz, 08-22-2017, 01:51 PM

For those who might be interested, there is an FA 600mm f/4 offered on eBay by a very reputable seller: smc PENTAX FA * 600mm f/4 ED IF Excellent+ | eBay
The price is a bit steep but don't forget it's a very rare lens...

Cheers!

That would go very nicely with the forthcoming silver K-1, and it's faster than the DA560 (and more expensive).

Looks like a very clean copy, and at a reasonable price. I'm sure someone will snag it soon!

To be honest I would say that price is not too much. Might be rare as a lens that is no longer in production, but it is also a lens that Pentax does not offer in its current production line. It is a very capable lens if the F*600 is anything to go by - film era deficiencies when used as a digital lens can be easily cleaned up on PPing. Very fine lens, but be prepared, you will need some muscle.
