I rarely mention Ebay listings as I can't vouch for the seller and often the items are of questionable description, but there is currently a SMC PENTAX-A* 200mm f/4 MACRO ED LENS from a UK seller who I believe used to be an active member on here a few years ago (I can't be 100% certain of that) - it has a Buy it Now price of 1784.95p and has the case and tripod mount and described as Near Mint.

I won't add a link, but it isn't hard to find - it's UK only at present, so if you're after one of these then this may be a great opportunity.

Hope it helps someone

I've seen it :O

It's a competitive price compared to the options from Japan.

I've looked at the eBay advert - what a fantastic condition lens!
The reviews on Pentax Forums are mouthwatering.
Still a lot of money though!
Lots of gear - but not a lot of idea!

Have to admit I keep going back and having a look but then remind myself I am selling Pentax gear not buying more.

Not sure I would be posting 1st class recorded though.
No equipment list here but thanks for taking an interest. My Flickr

I'm deliberately not looking at all !

Truthfully, I'm surprised you haven't bought it already

The seller says it is UK only at present but after the Christmas period he'll offer it more widely - I'll be amazed if it doesn't go within a couple of days of that happening

...yep, a lot of money - but I wonder how much they would charge if they were to produce a D-FA* version
