Henry in Toronto has a couple of * lens A*300, FA*85, FA*20mm on ebay. They are apparently refurbished items from Pentax.
For Canon guys, it is the L disease. For us, it is the * disease
FA*85 is more than $800 now and is still going. Too high for me . I would rather have a brand new Limited 77mm. Henry also has a FA135mm2.8 over $250 at ebay. I somehow got the same one in their web page at Can$199. They obviously have several of them. Before I went ahead with the on-line order. I called and spoke to them for 1/2 hour. They would not locate the lens. So I ordered on line and I got a msg from CanadaPost last night that it was shipped yesterday. Looks like I have got a good deal so far on paper only. Let 's see if the lens measures up to my expection. Stan has almost 20 lines praising this lens.
I am poor in money term with poor eyesight too. So I can only go for F or FA lens. What can I say.

Henry's in Canada is always a good place to buy, they usually have high end Pentax glass at fair prices and they are honest people to deal with. I believe they also have a FA* 300 and FA* 28-70 up for sale, but the 300 has a buy it now price so it may be gone.

The funny part is that I have better price buying direct instead through the ebay. Also I can return too within 7 days which is a big plus. You know that may happen after LBA has subsided somewhat or visa bill comes in.

From my experience: if you can put up the money for a *-lens, buy it!
