I do my best to care for my gear and I’m very selective if and when purchasing used gear. Much of what you see has little use in recent years. The lenses function perfectly, feature smooth action… wear only-no defects… no haze or fungus… a little dust perhaps, noticeable under bright light and close examination—certainly nothing that affects image quality. Please see the pictures, read each item’s listing carefully for additional information, and send me a private message if you are interested in purchasing anything. This is busy time of year for many, including myself, but I’ll respond to messages as quickly as I can and I will ship items out the same or next business day once I have received payment.

Any lens with scratches on its front element, fungus, or fog will automatically fall in this category.

SMC Pentax FA 43mm Limited f/1.9 (Item #1 in pictures)
Made in Japan.
Includes front and rear caps, leather pouch, and box. The rear cap is marked “Made in Korea” and is likely not the original; it also has a tendency to loosen.
Purchased from a forum member several years ago who had used it sparingly. I have used it sparingly myself.
Excellent condition, with wear showing on the metal lens cap. The box shows some wear… maybe the box is fair to good?

SMC Pentax FA 77mm Limited f/1.8 (Item #2 in pictures)
Made in Japan
Includes front and rear caps, leather pouch, box, and the pictured paperwork. The rear cap is likely not the original, but functions as such. The front cap has some nicks and chips to the finish.
The front element was replaced several years ago by Pentax Imaging Company in Colorado, after I slipped and fell with my camera at that time. It was returned to me quickly, good as new, and functions perfectly. I noticed a small abrasion on the aperture ring when I was photographing it for this ad and have circled it in red, although it is difficult to see.
Despite the above description, I consider it to be in Good+++ condition. If I could carry one lens with me into the afterlife this would be the one.

SOLD Sigma EX 10 -20 f/4-5.6 DC (Item #3 in pictures)
Made in Japan.
Includes factory hood, front and rear caps, a UV filter to protect the large front element, factory case, and original box. The rear cap is perhaps not the original, but functions as such.
Excellent condition. I purchased it new and have also used it very sparingly. A great lens for interiors!
