Fa 31

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
FA 31 with dented cap

Asking Price
780

Item Location
providence, RI (United States)

Item Description
My FA 31 is up for sale . This is AIV. However, it is super sharp and do not need any micro adjustment. Attached is the image I took today wide open (f1.8) and cropped focus area.

The lens itself (without the cap) is in very good conditions. The glasses are in perfectly clean without any scratch/fungus. I always had a UV filter on it and is also included with lens. There are minor signs of use on the barrel (as shown in the photos).

The lens cap has ugly dents (shown in the photos). They were all there when I bought from the previous owner.

I am selling this just for money. I just bought a DA 35 macro and I know that the picture quality of FA 31 is much better (actually incomparable). I guess I do not afford the pixie dust. I marked it as fair because of the dents on the cap.

Paypal fee is paid by the buyer unless paid as gift. The shipping (insured) is included in the price. Comes with the box, pouch, rear cap, etc.

Oops. Sorry about the confusion. I wanted to mean the lens itself (without the cap) is in excellent condition. Only the barrel shows some sign of use and I believe that it is in 95% of original condition. I specifically mentioned about the dents on the cap to give a full description of the lens.

I agree that it is confusing and I am changing it fair condition. Thanks Mxlinn to point that.

I tried my best to describe it.

To me if I could have replaced it with a new cap, I would have called it in excellent condition. Unfortunately, replacement caps are not currently available. I bought this lens at this condition and paid the same price that I asking.

Here is the listing of the seller from who I bought it (It was described as excellent and I did not have any confusion that what I am buying)

mxLinn is right. I have 30 year old lenses in better condition.

Attached are the pictures of front and back glass and the blades. They are clean and scratch/fungus/oil (or any other thing that are not expected) free.
