2 Amazing lenses: DA 70mm f/2.4 Limited and FA 50mm f/2.8 Macro

DA 70mm f/2.4 Limited lens - $429 plus shipping SOLD
FA 50mm f/2.8 Macro lens - $259 plus shipping SOLD

Shipping $10 with insurance and tracking in the US. Available elsewhere, but it will be more expensive - please ask.

Hello all! These are some really nice lenses, but I just have way too many, I can barely fit them on my desk, and my wife is not happy about it all. For whatever reason I don't use these two as much as some others, so they have to go, and maybe one can be yours! The DA 70 is in demo-like condition, with the box, pouch, paperwork caps and nifty little extendable hood. You can tell it has been out of the box and mounted a few times if you look closely, but minimal signs of use, and works flawlessly. The 70mm Limited is a gem of a lens, and if you like the focal length you almost can't get a better one. No scratches, haze, fungus or other hidden problems, and did not require focus adjustment on my K5. See some samples below:

Lens pictures at the bottom. The FA 50mm has seen a lot more action, and bears its scars proudly. The marks are all cosmetic on the body, with clear glass free of scratches haze and fungus. AF, aperture and focus clamp work well, and IQ is really, really nice. Some say this is the sharpest lens Pentax ever made, and I can believe it. Plus colors are great, too. I have a Pentax rear cap and a generic front cap for this lens which I will include. Some samples:

Please ask any questions you might have, Reasonable offers will be considered, but a full price offer takes 'em. I will not mark something as a "gift" for customs purposes, sorry. PayPal preferred, I will cover fees. If you find something not as described I am happy to return your money on return of the lens. Thanks for looking, and happy lens shopping! Nick

I'm interested in the 70mm but have never purchased through Pentax forums so don't know how to proceed. If it's still available, can you provide some guidance?
