FA 77/1.8 Limited, Black, Made in Japan Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
FA 77/1.8 Limited, Black, Made in Japan

Asking Price

Item Location
Madison, WI (United States)

Item Description
It's time to move this lens so I can buy an early green pouch silver version...since you'd have to be switching systems or gone crazy to sell this lens

I rated this in "Excellent" condition per the forum's condition key ("shows some use, but 95% of original condition"). Please note that unless I point out a flaw, what you're seeing is dust (new windows put in a couple weeks ago, and all my stuff was in my gear bag...but the dust is just so persistent).

Outside: It has two very small spots of paint loss on the focus ring, and two small scratches on the barrel of the lens. I'm being picky here, as I think a lens of this caliber deserves an honest description. Otherwise, no other wear to speak of.

Glass: Aside from the normal dust all lenses have, I can see one small particle of...something...near the front of the lens. As I look closer, there's another (yet smaller) speck near the rear element. You can look through the Marketplace archives here on PF and see other 77s with them. Not a single clue what it is They are almost always in a line shape, so maybe some fleck of paint from an internal part?

Accessories: Comes with box, manual/papers including serial card, front and rear caps, pouch. The front cap is in rough shape--that's how it arrived to me. Better some wear on the cap than the lens.

Shipping: Will be insured and sent either with USPS Priority or FedEx domestically.

Note to international members: Due to the value of the lens, expect shipping to cost around $60. I won't ship it First Class and won't declare a lower value since it will be insured. I'm willing to ship almost anywhere though it won't be cheap...

Are you the original owner of the item being sold?

Timid bump. I didn't buy a silver one and this black one didn't sell...basically, I was going to buy the silver and sell the black, essentially at the same time.

So...this is back up for sale. I won't be heartbroken if it doesn't go but I am still in pursuit of a silver 77

Would also do a partial trade for an early serial silver 43 or 77. Cash would go one way or the other depending on focal length
