Its all in the title.
I would be very interested in a tempting price on a great copy of the above lens.
Cash/BT/PayPal waiting for the right lens.

Please PM me if interested in selling.
Lots of gear - but not a lot of idea!

You know the FE200-600 suits you much better!

Yes, Id given up on yours! (Would probably have wanted too much for it anyway )
I hope you enjoy the Sigma 500mm f4.5.

Met @whatsthisbuttondo and collected the lens.
It is in lovely condition and complete with everything supplied when new.
I've had a quick play and it looks to be a super lens - I look forward to posting some images in due course.
Thanks to Peter for meeting me half way, and deciding to part with the lens! I know it was difficult.
Lovely chap to deal with, a pleasurable transaction.

An unexpected (to me) bonus of this lens is it focuses down to about 2 metres which makes it great for larger insects, also setting my camera to back button focus makes great use of the focus buttons on the lens.

Agree Rob,

This was with the K3iii plus the 150 - 450 at max focal length equiv 695mm - 1/100th sec - ISO 200 - F5.6 - handheld

You just have to stand back a tad and then a tad more
