[SOLD] Pentax SMC-FA 31mm f/1.8 Limited black AIV + Kalt hood (Worldwide) Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax SMC-FA 31mm f/1.8 Limited black AIV + Kalt hood

Asking Price
775 USD

Item Location
New Mexico, USA

Item Description
This is the black version, assembled in Vietnam. It is in good, used condition with some light, internal dust and minor cosmetic blemishes that can be seen in the linked photographs:
  • There are two tiny areas at opposite edges of the front element where the coating is discolored. They could be from cleaning, but I'm not certain. They have no effect on image quality and are outside the area of the lens used by APS-C cameras.
  • There are several, very small areas on the built-in hood where the finish is scratched, rubbed smooth, or chipped.
  • There is a tiny area on the focus ring where some of the black paint has rubbed off.
Aside from these cosmetic issues, the lens works perfectly and has given me no problems. It has taken many great photos for me and truly lives up to its reputation.

Included are both caps, storage pouch, original box, and paperwork. I am also including a Kalt metal lens hood, 58-49mm step-down ring, and 58mm, center-pinch lens cap that fits over the end of the hood or can be used to replace the original cap without the extra hood. The Kalt hood is a better match to the lens’s angle of view on APS-C cameras than the built-in hood. The step-down ring also allows the lens to be used with 49mm filters, which are common to other FA limited lenses, and does not produce vignetting on APS-C cameras.

More images of the lens can be seen here: Atpic: gallery 43703: Pentax FA31mm f/1.8 limited by wrjacobs

Please contact me if you have any questions about me or the item. I am new to this forum, but have sold occasionally on eBay since 2001 and am a photo enthusiast, not a professional seller. I am beginning to sell off my Pentax gear because my needs have changed and I have to raise some funds. Thanks for looking!
