FS: Pentax FA* 85mm f1.4 and Sigma 70-200mm f2.8 HSMII (K-1 compatible modified mount)

After a heavy tax bill and with a Florida family holiday approaching I'm regretfully looking to sell the following lenses:

FA* 85mm f1.4 _ Legendary portrait lens. A lovely example. Some scratch marks on the hood - but nothing too serious. Lens body in nice condition. This lens is probably the sharpest in my bag, with bokeh to die for. I said I'd never part with it. Going to regret this! 760 inc insured UK postage.

Sigma 70-200 f2.8 - Terrific quality zoom with silent motor. In good condition. Complete with hood, caps and tripod mounting foot. This zoom was modified by Sigma prior to purchase a couple of years ago. It has had the Pentax K1 compatible mounting installed. Terrific value for someone at 360 inc UK postage.

Payment via Bank Transfer or Paypal (buyer covers fees).
Thanks for looking.

I can vouch for the seller...my son bought his Sigma 150-500 off him this time last year...lens exceeded expectations in terms of condition and was extremely well packed and delivered very promptly. You can buy with confidence.

Good luck with the sale Phil...that Sigma looks cracking value...wish i had the spare cash myself.

Can you tell me if the 70-200 has box and case etc?

Also, do you have any pictures?

No box or case for the 70-200, sorry.
I bought it used, not original owner.
FYI Jumbo48 has expressed an interest in buying it and has first refusal.
I will come back to you if still available.
