Item for Sale
Pentax FA 50mm f2.8 macro

Asking Price
$250 (firm) plus shipping

Item Location
Edmonton (Canada)

Item Description
Pentax FA 50/2.8 macro lens in good condition. The body shows some light scratches from use, and there are some letters etched into the mount from the previous owner. The glass is in very good shape with no haze, fungus or scratches. There may be a few tiny specs of dust inside, but that wouldn't affect picture quality at all.

I bought this lens about a year and a half ago but have never really used it very much. I haven't had time to get into macro photography, and most of what I use my camera for generally requires a zoom or a long telephoto lens. I need to downsize my lens collection and this lens doesn't get used enough to justify me keeping it.

Overall, I feel this lens is in pretty good shape. The lens includes front and rear caps. Please check the pictures and feel free to ask questions. I can send you pictures that I have taken with this lens on request.

If you are interested in trading, I might be persuaded to trade for a Sigma 10-20mm lens or something similar.

If you are unfamiliar with how good this lens is, please read the reviews here.

I will only ship this lens within Canada and the US, and I will provide quotes for actual shipping charges on request.

You too got one of these! The lettering actually means the lens was used by the Edmonton police, and was bought at an auction when they "updated" their gear (go figure how you can upgrade from that excellent lens...)

Good luck with the sale!

I have the F version and is the sharpest lens I own. Someone should grab this soon. It is a magical lens.
