FA* 24mm Ltd for $460 Good deal?

Howdy ,

Well ive tried to read alot about this lense. I was out and about yesterday and found this lense for $460 or so because of exchange rate. Some reviews people have had problems other love it. If i dont pick it up, id be willing to go back and grab it if someone wants it.

If there were such a thing as an FA 24 ltd much less an FA* 24mm ltd, it would be good. I'm guessing you mean an FA* 24mm. That price is on the lower end of the average price for the FA* 24mm f2 lens assuming it is in good shape.

Yep, but bokeh is subjective. Some people really like this lens, some people really don't. At $460, I'd buy it and decide for myself. I know the focal length and speed are useful. If I didn't like it, it's easy to sell for a profit.
