[SOLD] FS: (EU) SMCP FA35/2.0 ED - reversed auction

Sold and shipped

I'm selling an SMCP FA35/2

The FA35 is my most used lens withthe DS and the K10D - a good and trusty performer with good resolution and contrast also at f/2.

The lens has served as a back-up lens, hardly used and as such it is pretty much as new. Or it is but new but I'm a coward and don't dare to write that. The front and rear lens element are flawless, the coating is flawless. the aperture blades are happy snappy, the AF works fine and there are no marks or scratches on the barrel. There is of course no fungus, haze, dust inside the lens and the mount is clean and nice and tight as expected.

The lens comes with it's original box.

More info over at Bojidar's place, photozone.de and several other places.

Q: Is there a lower price than 30€ available for shipping to Ireland?
A: The shipping price is high. The Royal Swedish Mail is like that. The price really is EUR31.60 when shipped insured. Sorry for that.

Q: You haven't stated clearly in the thread whether it includes all of it's accessories, hood, caps & case.
Could you clear this up for me please?
A: You are right, I'm not very clear there. The lens comes with everything that it was sold with, from the pouche down to the lens caps, via the hood.

Q: Ignoring all this reverse auction tomfoolery, what's the best price you are willing to sell the lens for?
A: Somewhere around EUR 200 is my lowest. If still not sold by then I'll withdraw this (whatever) and just eBay it.

Q: 220€ including shipping? I can Paypal you the money tonight.[/QUOTE]
A: No. Now that I'm trying this reverse auction tomfoolery it doesn't seem really fair. Not to the idea, not to other interested. As you understand I'm not in a hurry here.



Pictures of the lens are available here:

The doubters don't need to worry. There is nothing wrong with this lens.

First price drop: from EUR 250 to EUR 245. Not much of a drop but the price is very good from the start. Or so I think. I'm often wrong of course.

Ok, I guess I was wrong about the price. New price reduction today, again another EUR 5... Finally it will reach its correct summer time value I guess.
Don't expect another price reduction until Sunday or Monday.

Have a nice weekend everybody!
