[ACQUIRED] Pentax FA 31mm F1.8 AL Limited

I've been coveting, and approximating, this lens for far too long. So I'm now biting the bullet and buying one...even just to see what all the fuss has been about . As luck would happen my resolve has coincided with a dry market

So looking for a black MIJ model in good working order.

Cheers.

With the high Aussie dollar, the weak US dollar and some regular deals at B&H and Adorama, you can get a good one incl. shipping for less than $950-980 (and no import duty tax). That is considerably cheaper than to buy it new in Oz, and only marginally higher than used one in mint conditon.

I got mine from B&H 6months ago. It was a good deal then and it is an even better deal now.

Food for thought...

Thanks HCC. However, I suspect none of these retailers have an MIJ remaining. I contacted them to be sure, but neither Adorama or B+H are willing (or able) to open boxes to check. I will not succumb and hold out for a black MIJ.

...so the hunt continues. Love anyone's help....
