[SOLD] FA 50mm macro

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
FA 50mm macro

Asking Price
325 CAD

Item Location
Quebec city (Canada)

Item Description
For sale is the sharpest lens ever made by Pentax, the FA 50mm f2.8 macro. I'm selling this lens because I need to restructure my kit.

The lens is in perfect optical and cosmetic shape. It is like new and comes with both original caps. There is really nothing to mention except that the Edmonton police (the original owners) engraved the acquisition date in small characters on the mount flange. It is not visible if mounted, hardly visible unless you look for it, and should not bother anyone except a collector. I have put a picture of it below.

I have always taken great care of that lens, and a part of me already regrets selling it, but I'm sure it will be very useful to someone else.

Feel free to ask questions, and contact me via PM. The price is 325$ CAD net for me.

I thought about it a lot, but it's the most reasonable thing to do.

Thanks for the samples. Maybe I should put some of mine up there.

More PM replied to, waiting for update from potential buyer, but the lens is still available.

I still have a prospective buyer, but I won't know for some time, so for now the lens is still available. Here are some sample shots to tease you
