[SOLD] SMC Pentax FA 77mm F1.8 Limited (US) Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
SMC Pentax FA 77mm F1.8 Limited

Asking Price
$700 USD

Item Location
Seattle, WA

Item Description
One of Pentax's famous FA Limiteds, this lens is sharp, fast, and has beautiful bokeh. Great for portraits. It's also unbelievably compact, and built like a tank. Built-in lens hood. Includes original front and rear caps, as well as a B+W 49mm UV filter ($50 value.) The original pressure-fit cap doesn't work well with the UV filter, so I'm also including a pinch-type Pentax 49mm cap. Includes original soft pouch, original box, and manuals. This is the (superior) "made in Japan" version.

I am not the original owner of this particular lens, but I'm picky about my gear and I baby it. There's very slight cosmetic wear on the exterior - wear on the paint around the focus ring and aperture ring. Optics are clean and clear, mechanicals and electronics all work perfectly. Selling because I got a nice bonus at work and splurged on a full-frame Nikon DSLR. (I'm also selling my other lenses - see my other listings.)

Asking $700. Will discount if you want to combine with another of my lenses for sale.

Are you the original owner of the item being sold?

Are you selling or trading this item?
