I'm reluctantly selling my FA* 400 I dont have the time to get out anymore, plus i have better things to do with the cash....
I managed to find this lens "as new" 3 years ago, since then i have used it twice only & its been perfect.
But to have it sat in the cupboard is a real shame.
I have always had a UV filter on the face, there is no dust or fungus & everything works perfectly, comes with case, strap, boxed with all the paperwork, & the Hoya UV pro filter
Proof of purchase available if required.






There are a few more images if needed
This lens cost me a fortune to import so i'm looking for 1750 for this superb piece of Pentax engineering.

250-600mm

I still have this lovely lens available.......
Well, it was entertaining to have it on E-Bay, some of the offers & re-offers were interesting to say the least......i'm sure that some of the punters were smoking illicit substances
anyway its now removed from e-bay due to the idiots.....

An extraordinary item that looks in great nick. I'm no long wildlife shooter, but with ISO performance such as we now have available, both on FF and APS-C, who really needs F4 or F2.8 telephotos anymore ...?

Good luck with your sale!

With wildlife shooting focal length is everything. 400mm is barely useable a lot of the time (especially on full frame) so you are then looking at using teleconverters.
Once that happens even f2.8 with a 2x starts to be a stumbling block when you need decent aperture and shutter speed.
