Pentax FA43 (AIV) Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax FA43 (AIV)

Asking Price
500 AUD

Item Location
Darwin (Australia)

Item Description
I'm moving to m43 so have the following item for sale:

1. Pentax FA43 (AIV) - Purchased in March 2013 from Amazon USA directly. To manage expectations, please note there's some slight play/wobble in relation to the front inner barrel, however that's how it was when I bought it and have since read this is a common occurrence for Limited lenses. Never bothered me as everything else (i.e. focus ring etc) is solid tight and it produces sharp pictures. It actually locks focus better than the 40xs that originally came with the K01 and is definitely sharper too. If you're after a lens that has no play/wobble whatsoever, look elsewhere.

For US buyers, I will include a copy of the Amazon receipt for warranty purposes, Amazon never printed my name or address on the actual receipt, so I assume you won't have any issues using it for any US warranty claims. Accordingly, there's still 9 months of warranty available for US buyers. I purchased this lens before the recent price hike, had limited use, so it's priced to sell at $AUD500 + shipping. Registered shipping via Australia Post to US should be around AUD$35.

The FA43 is open to both Australian and US buyers. Other international buyers welcomed, but please understand there's no warranty.

For Paypal add 3%.
