Hey guys,

I've got a 250-600mm Big Glass Pentax lens I'm thinking about selling. Its in perfect working condition but there is a fair amount of wear and tear on the casing.

I'm just wondering if people still buy this lens and how much they would usually sell for, as I have no idea whatsoever.

Thanks,
Sam

One sold a week or two ago in Holland for about 2500 Euros and was considered to be a steal. At a guess I'd say 4 or 5k would be reasonable?

2500? I was thinking I would be lucky to get about 1500 for it. Lol.

It would be worth you posting a photo of it and confirming if
it's in the UK or another country.

As I said, there are obvious signs of wear and tear.
The lens is in Essex, UK

And I'm selling it because I don't use it. I don't have a Pentax DSLR and I only used it with an adapter to work on my Olympus E-410. As a result I have never used the autofocus etc so I cannot comment on how that works. I rarely go out taking photos anymore, as i've finished my photography A-level, so I'm trying to get a bit of money to pay for my accounting course

I would stick it on Ebay with some decent pictures and let it find it's own price. Would guess at 2k+ from what can be seen of the condition .. as long as the glass is unmarked.

The only problem with that, is I would prefer to do it privatly, so someone can try it out etc before commiting to buying it.

Plus I don't have an ebay account, so if I made one to just sell this, I would have zero feedback etc, which wouldn't look brilliant.

Too far for me otherwise I would be interested in taking a look.
