[SOLD] Pentax FA* 85mm F1.4 lens MINT (Worldwide)

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax FA* 85mm F1.4 lens MINT

Asking Price
$1500 US OBO

Item Location
Arizona

Item Description
I bought this lens new from Pentax in the mid-1990's and have used it only rarely on assignment. The optical quality is stunning. Why would I sell this legendary lens? I almost never use it, and I have an opportunity to go to New Zealand this autumn for what this lens is worth. Tough choice, but I'm opting for the big trip down under. You won't be sorry if you buy this lens, although someday I will be sad I sold it. Nature of choices, right?

Make an offer, but serious offers only please. I am not in a hurry to do this, but it's ready to send. I can send more images if that can help you decide.

This is one of my favorite lenses Seems like the version being sold here is the latest one, with the upgraded hood.

BTW, no auctions here- you can post OBO's, but no arbitrary offers (the moderators might have already let you know via PM, if so my apologies).

I wish....

Spent far too much on lenses recently

KJames, You have made the right choice. You can always buy the lens back some other time.
NZ is absolutely spectacular, stunning; wonderful people, wonderful country. Make sure you take the hop over the ditch and visit us here in Oz as well. you may never get that close to 'godzone' country ever again.

Thanks everyone, would love to shoot New Zealand and use the lens for nightlife there, if it can be found! I'll change the price listing to $1500 OBO today...

Does this lens still deserve to be called "MINT" with so much of drool all over it?

Turns out drool (literally) wipes off pretty easily... this should serve as a gentle reminder to keep your FA*85 out of the reach of infants and toddlers
