FA 31 Limtied (Sharp Copy)

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
FA 31 Limtied (Sharp Copy)

Asking Price
980 USD

Item Location
Shanghai (China)

Item Description
FA 31 Limited - $980

This lens was purchased last year from BH, and is an AIV version. I recently acquired another FA 31, MIJ version, so this one has to go. The lens is in mint condition with no scratch I can detect (metal cap was boxed and never used - a pinch cap was used instead but is not included in this sale). The lens will come in a soft pouch (not original) and the original box with all the paperwork.

The higher price reflects the quality of the copy. I went through several exchanges, and spent considerable time, with BH last year in order to receive a copy that I considered great.

The picture below was taken at f1.8. The detail that's retained is simply outstanding, and represents what a good copy FA 31 is capable of. There is no sharpening applied beyond LR's default setting. See 1:1 size on flickr.

Wow, I forgot how sharp this lens really is. Did you go through the same process for the MIJ? LBA is getting worse. This or the Sigma....

I went through maybe about 8-10 copies of various AIV/MIJ copies after I got this one to see if I can find even a better copy - I did. I can't justify keeping 2 copies, but I am not willing to sell this at the same price as others. Based on my experience, I know it's not easy to get a good copy and the sales price reflects the time/expense I spent.

shooting from high up so everything is at infinity. The picture also includes trees and other fractal objects, so there are details at every level of magnification.
