[SOLD] Fa* 24mm F2

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
FA*24/2

Asking Price
400GBP

Item Location
Wiltshire (UK)

Item Description
As below - after 400 to me (ie plus postage).

Am consolidating my lens collection, and am going to replace my beloved FA*24 with a Tamron 17-50 to help towards the FA77...

It is in what I would call very good used condition - there are some very small marks on the body of the lens, and a small amount of rubbing on the silver finish (eg at the edges of the lens hood).

However, the optics are in perfect condition, with the least dust I have ever seen on a 2nd hand lens, and literally zero fungus/decentring/aperture etc problems. There are also no problems with the (very useful) AF/MF clutch, which I have read about.

I am more than welcome to take close up, full res photos of any part of the lens if people ask.

Comes with original hood, lens cap, and rear cap. Annoyingly I can't find the original box, but (of course) it will come well packaged by RMSD. Also available to pickup from me in the SP9 postcode area.

I'm willing to ship anywhere (and will change the title) - was just concerned the weak sterling and expensive shipping wouldn't make it an attractive offer!

400 is c.$620, plus $30-40 S&H I reckon...

Great flare resistance too, along with incredible sharpness:




Any offers?

You should jump on it anyway, FA*24 and DA*55 make terrific combo!

Sad to see it go, a really fantastic lens that I would fully recommend.
