[SOLD] PENTAX FA35mm f2.0 (Worldwide) Marketplace Listing

PENTAX FA35mm f2.0

Item Description

Yep... $315. I'm looking to get my money out of it so if it doesn't sell here, it goes to ebay and the price will be higher.

Here's the scoop. Made in Japan, not assembled in Vietnam (if that really matters to you). Mechanically sound. A couple finish wear marks on the body that I was not able to capture with a flash (shiny spots in the body finish) and also a few on the hood. On the body, it is just to the right of the window as shown in the first photo.

Now, the real reason for the price. There is a coating scratch in the front element as well as a few other very light marks. I suspect, that at some point someone was using a filthy microfiber (which holds on to dirt, an abrasive, which is why I hate those things) to clean the lens. You cannot see the coating scratch looking at the front of the lens but when looking through from the rear, there it is. I don't see any evidence that this lens has ever been taken apart so I'm fairly certain, this is outside on the front element. I tried to photograph it but was unsuccessful. It is near the edge and may not have any affect whatsoever. I don't have a clean copy to compare it against however. The aberration you see on the window in the top photo, is a reflection.

Though not shown (because it's buried in a storage box) you will also get the box and whatever papers that are in it.

Questions, please ask before buying. As always, No Refunds.

Thank you..
