FA 31mm F1.8 AL Limited - MIJ

AU$775 / US$540 + shippingLens is in good user condition - there are some minor marks on the body - including some peeling of the exterior coating...see images.
More importantly, the glass is clean and clear, no fungus, no haze, no scratches, etc - just the usual unavoidable minor dust that you'd expect in a lens of this age.
Always kept in a humidity-controlled cabinet when not in use.

FA 43mm F1.9 Limited - SOLD
Lens is in excellent condition - no marks on the body - glass is clean and clear, no fungus, no haze, no scratches, etc - just the usual unavoidable minor dust that you'd expect in a lens of this age.
Comes with original box, original protective pouch, papers, manual, etc.
Always kept in a humidity-controlled cabinet when not in use.

Sigma 70-200mm APO DG HSM

AU$795 / US$555 + shipping
This is the final (and IMO the best) version of the 70-200mm that Sigma made for the Pentax mount. It's a great alternative to the more expensive Pentax D-FA* version,
It is in excellent condition with just some very minor superficial marks on the body. The glass is clean with no fungus, no haze, no scratches, etc. Just the usual unavoidable dust, commensurate with a lens of this age.
It comes with the original hood, including the APS-C hood extension, original protective case, and papers. Always kept in a humidity-controlled cabinet when not in use.

Q7 camera with 5-15mm lens & 3.2mm fish-eye

AU$360 / US$250 + shipping

Hardly used Pentax Q7 camera in excellent condition (almost like new).
Comes with two lenses - both in perfect condition:
02 Standard Zoom 5-15mm F2.8-4.5
03 Fish-Eye 3.2mm F5.6 lens
Included is the original box and papers, manual, etc, of the camera and zoom lens kit.
Always kept in a humidity-controlled cabinet when not in use.
I'll also throw in a couple of dumb adapters - one for Pentax K-Mount lenses, and one for Nikon F-mount lenses.
Due to the Q sensor's crop factor, a 300mm lens connected via an adapter will have an equivalent 35mm focal length of an incredible 1395mm!
This is an excellent travel kit if you hate lugging around the weight of a larger camera.

How to really identify a early Super Takumar 1.4/50 8 Element

In your case, it looks like a production fault - whereby the wrong marker was colored orange. With genuine 8-element lenses, the infra-red mark is to the right of the 4, rather than directly above it.

Norm - your elitist comments are patently unfair...particularly in a thread not meant for critiques...and particularly from someone who posted an image of a purple beaver. Let the man post his images without being told how unrealistic it looks to you. And before you claim that you were just trying to help, have a closer look at your comment that I quoted. It was clearly meant to ridicule.

Item for Sale
Sigma 100-300mm f/4 EX APO DG + Sigma 1.4x APO EX teleconverter

Asking Price
$1,100.00 AUD / $920.00 USD (includes shipping)

Item Location
Brisbane (Australia)

Item Description
It's a regretful sale, but 300mm is not long enough for me anymore. I've used the lens on a K-x, K-3 and K-1 and it worked perfectly on each of them - no focus adjustment required. This very sharp zoom is highly regarded by owners - see the reviews here: Sigma APO 100-300mm F4 EX DG Lens Reviews - Sigma Lenses - Pentax Lens Review Database.

Glass is clean and clear - no fungus, no haze, no clouding. Minimal dust consistent with age, which of course does not affect images.

Comes with original hood, original front cap, original rear cap, original protective case, box and papers.

Sigma 1.4x APO EX teleconverter is in like-new condition and comes with original front and rear caps.

The Australian dollar isn't the best at the moment, so it's likely the exchange rate would be in your favour.

That's laughable since they had to use a cheap adapter to test the lens, I wonder if the adapter manufacturer is also renowned for its lens mount reliability?
Also, did you see the images they shot when "testing" the lens? I'll bet they were not so generously provided.
A shame, really - good copies of the lens are...well, the evidence is here within this thread.

Sigma 100-300 f4 owners: is this what I should expect from this lens??
Posted By Erdž

If the seller swears the lens was sharp wide-open during his ownership - and you're clearly showing evidence that it is not, perhaps something happened to it during shipping (maybe dropped)? How was it packaged? Any evidence of external damage to the box it came in?
Then again, if the seller cannot provide his own sharp image using the lens at f4, this non-compliance would have to be looked upon with great suspicion.
I know I don't suddenly delete/lose all of my images once I've sold the lens they were taken with.

I don't know about you guys, but I found it difficult in the extreme to pick just one...but this is definitely one of my favourites from last year.
I appreciate the kind comments from you both. Thanks Tony and donlass! :)
