Looks like a bit of a bargain on ebay if anybody wants a cheap big zoom;

I've just bought a similar Sigma variant off ebay for 70 which I thought was cheap - this buy looks even better

Well spotted! One nice purchase

Maybe we should have a bargain buy thread, so time consuming pouring over the net, eyes peeled for anything Pentax.

The lens that went for 55 was an older version without the "Di" coatings.

The latest Tamron 70-300 is available for under a hundred quid brand new anyway.

Here's one for fans of manual-focus zooms: Pentax-A 70-210mm F4

- I bet the final price will be relatively low because the seller is saying the aperture is stuck. But I can see from the photo that all that's missing is the little button that takes it off the "A" setting. The lens could just stay on "A" to use with a modern camera, or maybe you could make a new button for it.
