Any idea for how much an A* 300mm F4 goes for these days?
One went last October on e-bay (from Germay to Europe only) for 955 Euro = 1261.32 US Dollars.

Bill Gates would consider that pocket change. I don't. But I'd love to have the lens. Haven't Bill started to give away things lately?

Okay then: clearly not my pocket change. I am not that nuts/sick yet.

BTW, there is one on eBay and with 5 days to go is only at $31.

Hmm, are you sure? The item description does not say "*" but take a look at the picture. I see a green star next to A.

Some of us were watching that hoping no one would notice that it's a star lens and get it cheaper.

My goodness. The seller does not even have a front and end caps for an A*300mmF4. Not much description of item as well. Likely he/she is not even a user at all. It will be interesting when he knows how much he is to get from this lens.

edited in: the seller deals quite a bit on coins mostly under $10. O boy

Same here: I do not think he is aware of what he has in his hands. He probably thinks that is some old junk of lens not worthy of $2 in caps.
Man, he deserves to be spanked

Sorry for the spoil element. I kind of doubt that it would have gone quitely. There are way too many Pentax addicts these days especially on eBay.

I wouldn't worry to much about a spoiler effect. The way prices have been going on ebay that thing will probably fetch over a grand. Id love to have it, but can't afford to go as high as it will probably go. If it was buy it now 500US Id do it in a minute

Sorry, my error. Didn't find this one when I did my search, but two other Pentax 300 mm f4 lenses of the older type.

Nah. What likely happened was that the seller subject is Pentax-A and usu search of people who want a 300mm would search Pentax 300mm. It may not show at all.
