    FA 80-320 Pentax lens

    Hi Folks.
    I found this lens on EEKBAY for $225.00 and frankly from what I have seen so far, it is pretty good.....

    Great pictures! Is that a fully auto lens, or is it manual focus?

    Edit: Is this the one?

    Re: FA 80-320 Pentax lens

    It's one of my favourite lenses, which I have had since the days of film .. here's a couple I shot with it ....
    like all lenses though of its type, it is better not to use it at its longest end - personally I stick to a max of about 260mm on it. Up to there though it's sharp as a tack.

    Cheers
    Mike

    I also have an FA 80-320mm which performs quite nicely on my K100D
