    I've really decided to streamline my camera collection, as in the past I've kept lenses past when I've changed systems, "just in case." I'm selling off these Pentax 645 lenses that I have, in the hopes that someone will put them to good use.

    1) Pentax-FA 80-160 f/4.5
    The factory hood was replaced with a collapsible rubber hood. It will autofocus on any 645 except for the original. Read reviews and user opinions, and you'll see that most people consider this lens to be, in real usage, as sharp as the primes. It's in great condition. Front and rear caps, but the rubber hood mount keeps it from being easy to put on and off.
    $415 + 25 shipping

    2) Pentax-A 80-160
    Overall, this lens works fine. The reason I'm charging half of what it's worth is because, although the optics are perfect, the zoom ring is gone. The metal barrel that it attaches to still turns without issue, it just doesn't have the rubber covering on it. Also, the front thread is dented, so you can't use filters. Either use it like it is, or contact a 3rd-party repair shop, and get a zoom ring off of a trashed lens.
    $80 + $25 shipping

    3) Pentax-A 200mm f/4
    Great portrait lens for Pentax 645. It has a built-in lens hood, works great. Hoya HMC filter on the front. Specks inside of elements, but doesn't affect image quality.
    $300 + $25 shipping


    If you buy more lenses, then I can fit multiple per box and save you on shipping (If only those thieves at the USPS would make a more cube-like small faltrate box, instead of it being book-shaped).

    The uploader doesn't seem to like me, so here is a Picasa Web Album I made of a few shots, with the photos tagged:
