FA50mm 1.7 for DA 40mm Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
FA50 1.7 for DA 40

Asking Price

Item Location
Burlington, CT (United States)

Item Description
I have a near mint copy of the somewhat rare FA50 1.7. I am the 2nd owner & have the original box & paperwork including warranty card. I also have a metal screw in lens hood ,a Tiffen warming filter, & a Tiffen CPL to go with it. The lens functions perfectly with no issues whatsoever. I am looking to trade this lens for a DA 40 2.8 Limited lens. I figure that they are arguably worth roughly the same amount, so I'm hoping to just do an even trade. You can see the serial # on the lens matches the one on the warranty card. The sample pics were taken at 1.7 w/ no adjustments, just converted from RAW in LR.

The FA50 1.7's are sharp with great bokeh, just read the reviews here. I own 2 of these (my wife has one on her K-x) & have always wanted the 40mm pancake, hence the reason for me letting it go.

Pepe is right, they are both great lenses.
I only have one little, tiny, slight question to ask.....
Are those 2 lenses really "arguably worth roughly the same amount"?
If so, then I think we need update Pentax Lens Review Database.

Thanks for answering my question.

alanjoke, I have been following the selling prices of both of these lenses here & other places for quite awhile & I've found that they've each been going for between $250 & $300.
