Pentax FA 50mm f1.4 - box and all papers + a hood & filter

Item Location
Newcastle (Australia)

Item Description
So this lens needs no introduction really - a an autofocus, proper premium fast 50 with f1.4 and 8 aperture blades, not like these cheapies CanNikon offer (and I would also say the DA f1.8 although that looks ok so far).

This one is in great condition and comes with all it's papers, it's original box, front and rear caps.
I have also added an Arrow 49mm UV filter, which I just use to protect the front element, as it sits quite close to the rim of the lens - and I also use this screw on rubber hood, because one review pointed out that generally this lens improves with a hood, again because of the large and exposed front element, and I found that it did improve in contrast and colour with a hood. So they're included if you want them - the lens caps still goes on when the hood is on, so I never remove it, and it makes a compact but amazing little package.

The photo attached was taken at f4. Yes I know this isn't exactly a stress on the lens, but I haven't used it that much and don't have heaps of faster shots - although I DO find it useable at f1.4, in the right circumstances - and I am picky about sharpness, but f1.4 is definitely useable.
I included this f4 shot because it shows the lens working its magic with sharpness, contrast and colour.
