Pentax FA 50mm f/1.4, DA 50-200mm f/4-5.6 WR (BNIB), DA 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 WR

I have for sale three lenses today. One is pre-owned, but still going strong, one is beaten up, and one is brand new and in the box (as in never even touched). There are plenty of pictures to show the condition of the first two and they have been priced accordingly and graded according to the Item Condition Key in the forum guide.

All prices are negotiable. Please feel free to PM me. I take Paypal (and eat the fees) and shipping is included to all 50 states by way of USPS with Signature Confirmation.

Pentax FA 50mm f/1.4 --- Good to Excellent --- comes with 49mm B+W single-coated UV filter as pictured
pictures from the previous owner --- additional pictures from me
There are signs of scratching on the rear end, but not on the mounting mechanism itself (just the outer metal circle), heavy lighting exaggerates their appearance in photos as they are smooth to the touch. The front end looks beautiful.

Pentax DA 50-200mm f/4-5.6 WR --- Mint (brand new in box)
$175 SOLD
here's a picture of the box if you want to see it

Pentax DA 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 WR --- Damaged (see pictures)
$50 SOLD
pictures of the lens and the damage
This was my first lens for my K-7 and it has not weathered well. Things would have been just peachy if not for a bargain-bin filter that I didn't notice get stuck on the threading. I tried every trick on the internet to get it off, but it was irredeemable. Now there are some scratch marks on the exterior from the more forceful method, and the threading is definitely messed up. There don't appear to be any scratches on the front of the glass itself, as I was extremely careful to keep the glass safe. Clear, detailed shots of the real cosmetic and filter damage are shown. Everything else about the lens works great and it's got less than a thousand shutter actions on it. It's not the best lens in the world, but they sold it bundled with the K-7 for a reason.
