Recently I have decided to buy a lens in the 200mm to 300mm region and today went to look at an Fa*300 f4.5 which is reported to be a very good lens. It is about 40% less in price than a Da*300 f4. The lens is in good condition. No marks on the glass that I could see. Smaller and lighter than I expected. When I said I was thinking of getting it instead of the Da*300 he said 'On digital! Da* 300 better than Fa*' Now I am not so sure about buying it.

Is the Da* that much better?

On a side note this second hand shop has lots of desirable old pentax lenses. A15mm/f3.5, Fa*80-200/f2.8, Fa*85/1.4, K200/2.5, K30/f2.8 to name a few.

keep in mind that fa*300 is a full frame/450mm/on aps/c.

It is an advance over da* to some.
