FA* 85mm and FA* 24mm

Hello.

I feel like I'm posting too many at a time, so this thread includes multiple items.

Before I describe items, I should specify the price and the shipping method.


Price and payment method :

SMC Pentax-FA* 85mm F1.4 [IF] - $1200
SMC Pentax-FA* 24mm F2 AL [IF] - $540

If you buy both of them - $ 1700

You have 2 choices of payment options

1. Paypal with gift option - price is as listed above
2. Regular paypal payment - please add 3% from the price above

Generally, returns are not accepted. But, if you find a significant problem, I'm always open to talk.(PM me)


Shipping method :

USPS Priority(insured) is included in the price.



Item description :

SMC Pentax-FA* 85mm F1.4 [IF]

This is the best prime lenses for portraits. I really enjoyed using it!!

Actually, I was waiting for the full frame DSLR from Pentax since the lenses are compatible with SLRs. And, with this reason, I decided to purchase it (with FA* 24)

But, Pentax doesn't look like to produce one in near future, so I just decided to try other brand's FF DSLR.

I'm kind of sad to give up this lens. But, this lens should produce great photos, not sitting in a corner of someone's room.

I only have 2 complaints on this lens - 1. It's heavy. 2. Exterior finishing

Anyways, it has some "scratches" in the body. The silver finishing? is kind of a well known problem for FA* lenses, and I couldn't run away from this problem.

But, I tried to keep it in a better condition as possible!!



SMC Pentax-FA* 24mm F2 AL [IF]

I haven't utilized this lens, so there's not much to say about this lens.

For a film camera, I took 2 rolls of photo with this lens. But, for my DSLR, I couldn't get used to the angle.

In this thread, I include a result of this lens, which is not the best but is the only one I have in my computer.



For both lenses, I used B+W filter but I cannot include them in the package. Sorry about that.

And, for both of them, the pouch is included :

85mm does not come with original pouch. But, I think, this pouch will protect you from the scratch.

24mm comes with Pentax pouch.



If you need any questions or additional photos, let me know.(although, I can post additional photos on Saturday night or Sunday)



IMG_952 is a photo of FA 85mm
IMG_10xx is a photo of FA 24mm

And, more detailed photos can be found from compressed files. (854.zip -> FA 85mm, and FA24.zip -> FA 24mm)

replied. It is still available.

And, please make sure whether you are interested in FA 24mm or 24.8.
Since I listed two 24mm lenses with different F value, "I'm interested in your 24" is very confusing! Thank you guys(and girls).
