Item Description
I'm selling an excellent condition Silver FA 43mm with an early serial #. I am not the original owner, but ive babied it since I've had it and only bring it out during photoshoots. Also as a result of buying it used, I do not have the original box, leather case, or manuals.

Lens will only come with original metal hood, cap, and Pentax rear cap.

These early batches are said to have a different coating from the current ones being produced today.

The lens optics is clean and clear, no scratches, haze, or fungus.
The silver finish on the body and hood are free of scratches or blemishes.
The metal hood however has a scratch that runs halfway across.

The aperture blades are clean and snappy, free of any oil.
The aperture ring clicks at all appropriate f stops.
The focus is smooth as butter and well damped for that awesome manual focus feel that cannot be found in current autofocus lenses.


Here's your chance to get an early version of an amazing lens. I know I will regret selling it, but right now I need the versatility of zoom lenses for the event shoots I will be doing in the near future.

I would be willing to trade this for a
Tamron 28-75 + cash difference (depending on condition)

Please PM with any questions, will post more pictures if requested.
