Selling my SMC Pentax-FA* 300mm F4.5 ED [IF]

No need to introduce it, really great lens !

In good condition, only few scratches on the body. Works flawlessly.
No scratches, fungus or whatsoever on the glasses.

Both original caps included.











Price : 570 shipping with inssurance included.

Can also include for 70 a Teleconverter Kenko DG x1.5 MC7 which works perfectly with it.

Think most people who wanted a 300mm bought the Amazon 580 DA* f4 a few months back so it's likely to be a bit slow unfortunately.

I heard about this great deal on DA*300... You are probably right.

But these two lenses should not be compared! The FA is much smaller, full frame and has screw AF (so can be used with TC and doesn't have SDM disease )

Very very rare for the DA* 300mm motor to fail (infact I have never heard of one failing before), it is also full frame, works exceptionally well with the 1.7x and tbh is quite compact for it's focal length. It also doesn't have a body that looses paint if you sneeze on it and came with 12 months warranty.

Anyway .. you asked, I offered a possible reason which tbh shouldn't matter now as the Amazon deal is long gone and the FA 300mm is an excellent lens in it's own right.

Best of luck with the sale.

Edit: Personally I would re do the third picture, you say there are no marks on the front glass so perhaps a blow over to remove the specks of dust would help your sale?

Well I posted on PU about the SDM in my DA*300 failing 2-3 months back ... and it failed again, after being repaired, last weekend. Makes a strong case for the FA* !

Any chance you can reduce that ridiculous sig now you have sold most of your Pentax gear .... makes reading the forum on my mobile a right pain.

What .. nothing to say about the SDM on the 300 now ? Just some petty bitching about a sig. ? Done.

This petty bickering is spoiling the OP's for sale thread and puts people off, so please keep to the point and let's settle down.
Best regards, John

I received an offer for 525 including shipping and paypal fees.
Considering the paypal fees I had to reject this offer.

But 525 including shipping but not paypal fees seems acceptable to me.
And 590 for FA*300 TC Kenko and shipping !

Hi

Does a DA spec lens still auto focus correctly with this converter?
I have a 55-300 that it would come in handy with.
