FA 43mm Limited Silver MIJ early serial number (0003706)

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
FA 43mm Limited Silver MIJ early serial number (0003706)

Asking Price
$660 (if paid as a PayPal gift, otherwise buyer covers PayPal fee)

Item Location
Colstrip, MT (United States)

Item Description
I really hate to let this one go, but I've discovered that it just isn't the right FL for me. And I would feel guilty to have this beauty spend most of it's time in the bag...

This is an early serial model edition (serial number: 0003706), which some say is better, especially in it's skin tone rendering... As to the truth of that, I do not know since I don't have another copy to test it against. However, I do know that this lens does have probably the best skin tone rendering of any lens I've ever used.

Everything functions perfectly... The lens body and hood is mint. The cap has a few small dings (as can be seen in the pictures), but no scratches.

Included is the Lens, caps, hood, and brown leather pouch (also MIJ).

Quite honestly, pictures don't do the silver limiteds justice. You just have to get your hands on it to fully grasp the beauty...

Feel free to PM me with any questions!
