I thought I'd offer this on Astromart one last time before breaking it down to sell separately.

Pentax SMCP-A 400mm f/2.8 ED(IF)
* internal focusing
* rotating collar
* 49mm drop-in filters
* retractable lens hood
* red dot reflex finder
* PF filter that has been fashioned into a Hartmann focusing mask
* custom Losmandy-fitting rings and mount
* Pelican 1610 case
* 1.4X-L tele-extender (cost over 240.00)

The barrel is in excellent shape with minor scratches, no dents or dings. The glass is pristine. Images are sharp across the field even when shot wide open (and with the tele-extender). I will email links to photos taken with this lens if anyone is seriously interested.
Note: This weighs a little over 13 pounds *without* the mounting rings and plate. The front elements are 145mm (5.7 in.) in diameter.

The camera is a Pentax LX fitted with an FE-1 Magnifinder and a Beattie Intenscreen focusing screen. It is in excellent shape and has been well maintained - no sticky mirror. It has mirror lock-up and can operate without batteries (although they are needed for exposures between 1/30 and 4 sec.).

Will sell as outfit or separately.


Lens - 3500.00 shipped
LX body - 290.00 shipped

I would also consider any reasonable offer!!!!!!!!!
