I've decided to sell my Pentax SMC A* 200mm f4.0 Macro ED - in very good condition with original tripod foot. I need to check whether I have box and case, I think I do :oops: I'll take some photos to show the condition at the weekend but some sample shots taken with it are available here:

I'm sure you know the reputation of the lens, but if you don't the review over on Pentaxforums.com is quite favourable:

I know some members have asked for first refusal in the past but I can't find the relevant PM's so sorry about that :(

I've been trying to work out its current market value but it's not easy as I don't think one has sold on the forums or Ebay recently. If anyone has an indication of what they have sold for recently that would help, but obviously it won't be a cheap lens.

This will be a UK Only sale via Bank Transfer, Cheque (cleared), or Cash on collection, Inspection Welcome.

This might help determine a sensible price https://www.pentaxforums.com/lensreview ... -Lens.html

Thanks Peter - I had seen that but the last one was 2 years ago, and the 2 before that 4 years ago. I expected to find a recently sold Ebay one to use as a benchmark, but I can't seem to formulate a search on Ebay that returns those results :(

Thanks - couldn't get that to come up on my searching :oops:

Mine doesn't have a scratch on the optics or that level of dust - although that seemed like a pretty low price even taking that into consideration.
