General Details

Pentax FA* 600mm f/4.0 ED IF Lens

Serial Number


Item Description

Excellent! No scratches, haze, fungus, cleaning marks. This lens has just returned from an overhaul at Pentax Japan and there are absolutely no problems with it.


Perfect! Auto focus and manual focus both work without trouble. Aperture blades are clean, oil free, and snappy. This lens has just returned from an overhaul at Pentax Japan and there are absolutely no problems with it.

Lens Mount

Excellent! There is no wear visible on the mount. There is a close-up photograph of the mount included with this listing's photos.

Barrel Cosmetics

Poor to Fair. There are a lot of cosmetic marks in the barrel paint from use. In particular the bottom of the lens near the front shows considerable paint wear. This is quite likely from handholding this lens while wearing a wedding band or from resting the lens on something during use. There is no damage to the barrel however, only cosmetic marks in the paint. Large and detailed photos are included with this listing, please examine them carefully to see the exact condition of this lens. (Please also check the offsite photos, they are more than double the size.)

Built-in Hood Cosmetics

Same cosmetic condition as the barrel. The hood slides out smoothly and locks into place without trouble.

Tripod Foot Cosmetics

Good to Very Good. There are some cosmetic marks on the bottom of the tripod foot from tripod-mounting use, and some on the side of the tripod foot from being used to carry the lens. No damage to the foot and no problems with the mounting threads.

Included ItemsThis lens comes with the following items:
  • Pentax Built-in Lens Hood (Not removable, mentioned only for clarity.)
  • Pentax 150mm Front Protect Filter (This filter has quite a lot of scratches in its coating, probably from poor cleaning practices. I discussed replacing the filter with Pentax Japan but their stated opinion was that these marks will not impact image quality. My tests also show that there is no impact on image quality from these marks.)
  • Pentax 43mm Drop-in Filter Holder with Pentax L39 UV Filter
  • Pentax 6-filter Set with Filter Case (Normal, Skylight, Cloudy, R60, Y48, O56)
  • Pentax Front Slip-on Lens Cap and Rear Mount Cap
  • Pentax Lens Strap (Not shown in photos but included with lens.)
  • Pentax Lens Manual
