I waw out for a walk yesterday and passed a couple of shops with used Pentax lenses. The ones that caught my eye were:

Pentax FA 80-320 4.5-5.6

Pentax FA 70-200 F4

Opinions/experience with either of these? What would you think would be the price range for these lenses in good condition? Also, is there a resource that explains the various letter designations of different Pentax lenses ... some seem to be labelled FA other AF ... what's the difference? Which ones are supposed to be of higher quality?

Thanks, Mike

the range 70-200 is good. check out the A70-210. it's manual focus but sharp as a tack. it's in another thread i started.
