Pentax FA 31mm f1.8 Limited (black) Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax FA 31mm f1.8 Limited (black)

Asking Price
795.00 USD

Item Location
Woodbury, MN (United States)

Item Description

Up for sale is my Pentax FA 31mm f1.8 Limited lens, black and a recent Made-in-Vietnam version. I am the original owner and purchased the lens from B&H on March 28, 2012. I am selling because I now have an OM-D, which is working well for me as a compact option, and I would like to fund a fully WR DSLR setup for my big carry option.

$795, or best offer, with shipping and insurance included for Continental US. I will also handle any Paypal fees. Included with the lens are the original box, packaging, papers, receipt and lens pouch (never used as I had a neoprene pouch I preferred).

Mechanical condition is as new and glass is clean. I am very pleased with the images I was able to get out of this lens and my K-01 (some samples at the very end of this listing).

There are two minor cosmetic issues that keep this from looking completely new. The first, is some small scratches on one corner of the hood. I did not see these until I was photographing the lens today for the listing (maybe I am not that observant!), but they are obvious now that I know. Still, I think fairly minor and not noticeable from a distance. The scratches were caused by the Pentax lens cap. It has a nice, felt lining, but if it is not aligned properly, there is a possibility of metal-on-metal scratching when putting in over the lens hood. The lens has never been dropped or bumped up against anything. It has always been stored in a padded pouch, or mounted on the camera in a padded bag.

The other issue is some light wear on one side (top edge) of the lens cap. Images of both are in my gallery, links follow:
