I'm making a purchase I've been wanting for the longest time and since I'm short in cash, I'm relinquishing my hold on this legendary––but seldom used by me--lens.
It's in EX+ condition; Optics 9.5/10, Mechanics 9.5/10, Cosmetics 9/10 (with the lightest of scuffs on the rings).
$700 + shipping, Paypal (with you footing the fees or using personal/other). I have an immaculate record regarding transactions here and elsewhere, including Pentax Forums, APUG, MFlenses, etc. (I use the same internet handle--rawhead--on all photography related fora). Also, I have a 100% buy/sell feedback on Ebay (ciguatera303) and a near perfect transaction score on Yahoo! Auctions in Japan (lecroboy).
I'm leaving the country for several weeks on Dec. 31st, so this sale is only till midnight, Dec. 30th, US EST, and the payment must be made immediately, or else I won't be able to ship it.
If it doesn't sell by then, I'll withdraw the listing, and won't put it up till I get back on Jan 24th. Of course, there's a chance I will have changed my mind about selling this lens by then
Here are some pics.
