As the title says, 265.00 including adequately insured postage to a UK address.

Specifications can be seen here.

Boj's estimate of availability as "Used, several times a month" is not quite accurate. Try and find one, they're like rocking horse manure!

Built-in hood, internal focus, original clip-on front cap, original hard plastic rear cap.
Glass is clean and free of any marks, dust, fungus etc.
Aperture ring is snappy, focus is smooth, diaphragm is oil free.
There is slight evidence of normal use on the outside.
Filter thread is pristine and undamaged.
The lens is in very good condition.
The box is in good shape and contains only the pre-formed polystyrene liners to support the lens, no paperwork is included.

135mm telephoto lenses don't come much better than this. This is an excellent portrait lens on FF film or digital (if Pentax ever makes one).

Payment by bank transfer, cheque (UK bank), or Paypal as a gift - buyer pays fees.

Stop it John, what are trying to do, convince me to keep it? It wouldn't take much persuasion I can tell you.

My swingometer is going from keep it, to sell it, to keep it, to sell it every few minutes.

In that case, I can probably tempt you with a superb condition, as new, SMCP-FA 100mm 1:2.8 Macro with original caps then? Same price.

And I was in Cornwall last weekend, I could have bought it with me if I'd known.

If I wasn't sitting here with pictures of the 135mm A* 1.8 from Ffordes (and a calculator) I would be seriously considering this.
