[SOLD] Pentax FA* 85mm 1.4 Excellent Condition (Worldwide) Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax FA* 85mm 1.4 Excellent Condition

Asking Price

Item Location
Indiana, U.S.A.

Item Description
Up for sale is an excellent+ condition Pentax FA* 85mm 1.4 lens. It has come time for me to sell this lens because it's size and conspicuous nature don't fit my shooting style/habits. In my opinion it is the second best lens I've ever used as far as image quality goes, and it is only bested by the A* 200mm Macro, which is quite a feat.

The only cosmetic blemishes are a few small marks on the hood, none of which are very deep. The glass is perfect, save for a minimal amount of internal dust. Included with the lens are the box(which is pretty beat up), original caps, hood, case, and paperwork. When closed all the way down the aperture is slightly asymmetrical, but it has never caused a problem for me. Otherwise there is nothing else that could be considered a problem with the lens.

This photo attempts to show the worst of the blemishes on the hood (just left of center in the photo). It is a small cluster of very faint scratches (thinner than a hair), and a straight, light scuff above that cluster. The only other blemish I can find is one other very faint scratch (also thinner than a hair) about 5mm long, also on the hood. I couldn't get a good photo of it though.

This photo shows the slight asymmetry of the aperture when closed down.

If you're interested in this lens you will probably not find a better example, unless someone has a NIB copy stashed away somewhere.

Are you the original owner of the item being sold?

Are you selling or trading this item?

Good luck with the sale. I love mine already to death (although you don't want to be reminded about that I think )
