For anyone who might be interested and lives in or around Oxfordshire, there is an ad on Gumtree for a Pentax FA 24-90mm lens all boxed with hood and claimed to be in excellent condition. It's not cheap at an asking price of 199.00 but certainly cheaper than the current crop for sale on ebay.

They usually go for much less, I'd say it's worth less than half the asking price.

You may perhaps be thinking of a different lens. I sold mine for 200 and that seems to be the going rate based on ebay completed listings.

200 for the 24-90mm is a good price. They were 300 a few years ago.

I personally prefer the 24-50mm.

I'd expect better images in the ad....for clean glass and good working condition 150-200 is not unreasonable. I only sold mine a few years ago as I thought a FF Pentax would never see the light of day, wish I kept it now.
