H/U FA* glass

If anyone craves FA* glass, ffordes, up in Scotland (very reputable dealer), seem to have bought a very nice outfit off someone. They have listed (all separate):
FA* 28mm f2.0
FA* 85mm f1.4
FA* 200mm f2.8
FA* 300mm f4.5
FA* 400mm f5.6
(sorry - no 600mm f4!)
FA* 80-200mm f2.8
A 1.4x-S Rear Converter
A 1.4x-L Rear Converter
A 2x-S Rear Converter

If you are wondering where the FA* 20-70mm f2.8 is (as I did), look at the bodies - it's on a Z-1 ltd edition! There's also an MZ-S... I wonder what the history of that little lot is (its nearly all 'almost as new').

Oh, by the way, to avoid disappointment, I've already ordered the 400mm and 1.4L converter (if I wasn't beaten to the punch - they take a day or two to update the site)

Disclaimer. I have no association with ffordes, other than, having spent far to much money with them over the years!
