[SOLD] Pentax FA* 31mm in Australia (US/UK/CAN/AUS) Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax FA* 31mm in Australia

Asking Price

Item Location
Melbourne, Australia

Item Description
Well we all know this lens no need to describe its qualities. Sadly as I am selling up all my Pentax gear this is going up for sale too (best for last I guess).

The glass and mechanics are perfect not a mark... Always had a protective filter on it when I used it..

The body is excellent there are a couple of tiny marks the largest is shown in one of the shots here, but even it is a hairline scratch in the paint and hardly worth mentioning (the flash shows it up well)..

Comes with the pouch (unused), original caps and in the original box.

This is an Assembled in Vietnam copy but that isn't a concern, I had problems when I bought it with it being soft at all apetures, it went back to Pentax Japan they replaced an optical group and rebuilt it to their factory specs and it is great now. Easily as good as my mates made in japan version.

P.S. For Australians I am happy to send receipt with it, it is still under Australian warranty until October.

I have included pictures of the lens in the post and below are links to two recent full size photos taken at f1.8 and f2.2 (with flash) to show how sharp it is. These were processed without any USM (sharpening) added, EXIF intact..

Are you the original owner of the item being sold?
