After reading all 19 pages of the how-to thread, I see nobody has quite figured out how to do this yet. I removed the text about it.

With the information that SDM can't be converted to screw drive on this lens, I'm going to drop the price by another $60. As I said, the SDM is fully functional, it just needs a focus or two to warm up.

Item for Sale
SMC Pentax DA* 60-250mm F4

Asking Price
$390.00 USD -- was $450

Item Location
Salt Lake City (United States)

Item Description
This is the SMC Pentax DA* 60-250mm I purchased from Amazon.

The SDM in mine has always been a bit strange. It needs a few warm up focuses once you start using it and then it works fine for days. Eventually you don't shoot with it for a couple of days and it needs another warmup. I talked about it on the forums years ago, and it's still in the same shape. I'm marking the lens as fair due to this concern only.

Otherwise, it's as fast as SDM ever is. I can definitely see specs of dust through the lens. It's hard for the airflow of this model not to pull in dust when you zoom. Other than dust, glass is clean, no haze, no fungus. Focus is smooth. Aperture snappy.

Original front and back caps and hood. If you purchase, I'll try to find the box and bag but no promises.

I have not modified it to full frame. I did almost buy a baffle from someone, but I have so many full frame lenses covering this range that I just don't need a project.

$390 shipped to you CON/US only. (Payment via PayPal as standard purchase), or $340 in person.

Item for Sale
Sigma Bigma 50-500mm EX DG APO (For Pentax K)

Asking Price
650.00 USD

Item Location
Salt Lake City (United States)

Item Description
Sigma Bigma 50-500 EX DG APO (Note not the OS model) superzoom lens.

This is a particularly sharp copy of this super zoom lens. I picked this up from someone who barely used it, and not too long after I acquired a 250-600 so I hardly used it.

When I looked close, there are some specs of dust in the lens, otherwise clean.
Manual focus is smooth, auto focus is as snappy as this model can be.
Aperture blades snappy.
Glass is clean, no haze, no scratches.

This model has the matte black finish rather than gloss.

Original front cap, strap, lens hood, and back cap as pictured.

If you purchase, I will attempt to locate the box and bag, but no promises.

$650 shipped to you CON/US only. (Payment via PayPal as standard purchase), or $600 in person.

Item for Sale
FA* 80-200/2.8

Asking Price
450.00 USD

Item Location
Salt Lake City (United States)

Item Description
The Pentax FA* 80-200/2.8, I purchased this on the forums in 2010 FA* 80-200mm/2.8 (conus) - PentaxForums.com

I used this FA* a ton. It's a great lens, and still works as good today as when I bought it. I've upgraded and no longer need it.

The Power Zoom on this lens does not work.
Regular zoom works but does encounter some "air breathing" friction which doesn't cause any problems with the zoom.
Manual focus is slightly tighter near infinity, does not impact infinity focus. Screw drive focus does have some labor during full throw focusing, but works fine on my K-1.
Barrel was quite used when I bought it. It does have small crack near the screw by power zoom
Dust is visible in the lens, but never impacted my image quality. No scratches, no mold, no haze.

Minor issues aside, it's ready for your use.

Generic back cap. Pentax front cap as pictured. Hood as pictured.

$450 shipped to you CON/US only. (Payment via PayPal as standard purchase), or $400 in person.

You know, I'm late to the post, but this is FACT.

Once upon an April 1, I listed my entire collection for sale so that I could go to the Pentax Q line, and I kid you not, it showed up on Pentaxrumors.

You could say that your FA 50/1.4 will just have to do also.

This bad boy is limited availability, while the D FA will be available later in the year. I wouldn't wait ;)

I guess the exterior wouldn't matter to me. I'm going to take my lenses into harsh conditions, and not care if the exterior gets scratched. I'm not running an optical museum; I want to use my gear. :D

I suspect that the foam decomposed around the lens, and damaged the finish. Also, you're certainly going to have to find a 49mm filter to replace the one with cleaning marks. As to the lens itself. Do you care if the outside isn't pristine?

I dunno, I bought a FA* 600 with much worse finish, clearly from much use, but the glass is great.

Hmm... Pentax still in business? Still selling cameras? Even releasing new lenses?

Looks like Amateur Photographers was wrong. No doom and gloom today; nothing to see here. Please move along.
