[SOLD] Pentax FA 31mm f1.8 Limited, Black, Made in Japan (Brand New in Box) (US/UK/CA

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax FA 31mm f1.8 Limited, Black, Made in Japan (Brand New in Box).

Asking Price
$975 (Canadian Dollars)

Item Location
Vancouver, BC, Canada

Item Description
For sale is one Black, Made in Japan, FA 31mm f1.8 Limited lens.

It is brand new in box. I have removed it from it's box to confirm that it works, and it has since been in excellent storage conditions. It has no known issues mechanically or optically. No loose barrels, no scratches or marks, it has the least internal dust I've ever seen in any lens I've come across. The front lens cap fits nice and snug.

Reason for sale:
I own the 43mm and the 77mm Limited lenses. I am so happy with the image quality of these lenses that I thought it would be a good idea to complete the set of three FA Limiteds. While it was nice being able to say I have all three, it was not so nice to admit that the purchase of the 31mm Limited was a mistake for me. I have never, ever used it despite its capabilities. As a photographer it is beyond me how to use it effectively since I always use my DA 16-45mm. It has remained carefully stored and the time has come to offer it to someone that might use it the way it is intended to be used.

This lens will ship complete with:
-Front lens cap
-Rear lens cap
-Original box (it says "Assembled in Vietnam" but I don't know why since you can see "Made in Japan" clearly on the lens)
-All original paperwork and manuals
-Original black lens pouch with "PENTAX 31/1:1.8" lettering in gold.

Additional info:
-This specific lens was sent to me by Pentax Canada when I returned my original purchase for poor image quality reasons. The first one I purchased was the "Assembled in Vietnam" version, and it was very soft wide open. At my request, Pentax elected to replace it with one that was "Made in Japan". I have all the paperwork associated with this as well, and that will be included in the package.
-The warranty is valid until the end of June 2011.

Payment info:
I will accept PayPal only.
