For sale is my Pentax DA* 300mm f/4. The lens is in excellent condition and comes boxed along with the case, tripod foot, caps and hood.

The lens has a little wear on the tripod mount knob where it rubbed against the bag .. same thing has happened to my 70-200mm and 150-450mm, can't be helped it seems.

Great lens, has good close focus ability, and is excellent with the 1.4x teleconverter.

575 incl UK postage.

Pictures, to follow .. couple taken with lens.

Which do you rate as the better lens at 300mm, this or the sigma you have for sale?

That's a difficult one, I would say the Pentax lens (being a prime) is ever so slightly sharper at 300mm. Not much in it though and the Sigma is a lot more versatile.

is shipping to Rep of Ireland an option?

It is but you would be responsible for any import charges plus any difference between UK and International postage price. If you are ok with that then PM me with your address and I can work out a rough postage price.
