FA 31, FA 43, FA 77 all MIJ, 16-45, Lens Turbo

I've transitioned over to Sony, and have too much money tied up in gear, so it's time to let these go (again--sold them, missed them, bought them again). I'll miss these beautifully constructed and compact lenses!

They are all in fully working condition with no marks on the glass, no oil on the blades or other defects and they have been well cared for and much enjoyed while in my possession. There is likely minor internal dust in all of them, and I'll give you 10 days to review in case there's anything I missed! (though return shipping is on you )

Prices include shipping and paypal. Please pay in your own currency, USD or CAD. North America only.

FA 31/1.8 Limited; Made in Japan. $910. This has seen the most use of the three lenses here, with some fine scratches on the focus ring and some rub marks on the hood and caps. I'd rate it 8/10 cosmetically. Includes original caps, pouch and box. I'm also including a barely used 58mm Hoya HMC Super C-PL filter. It has no front threads, so perfect for a lens with a push on cap!

FA 43/1.9 Limited; Made in Japan. SOLD $510. I think I'm the third owner and it looks like it has seen very little use. I used it as a compact short portrait lens. Still, there are a couple of very minor marks here and there, mostly discovered while taking these pictures! I'd rate it 9/10. Includes original caps, hood, pouch and box.

FA 77/1.8 Limited; Made in Japan. SOLD $710. In great shape, with only one minor scratch on the focus ring and some minor scratches on the caps. 9/10. Includes original caps, pouch and box. The box has a tear in the side where it has that little window, but is still boxy.

Zhong Yi Lens Turbo for PK-NEX. I'll let this go for $140 only with the purchase of one of the above lenses, or for free if you buy all three! What is it? It lets you use Pentax lenses on a Sony NEX with a wider Field of View than you get on an APS-C sensor, plus it gives you an extra 2/3 of a stop in exposure. I've found this adapter to be well built, with no detriment to sharpness (and no 'purple spot' issue as seen on the Nikon version), though it does seem to have a problem with infinity focus: When I use the hard stop at infinity it focuses maybe 60 feet away, probably dependent on the focal length. Still, I got it to try the FA 77 on my NEX-7 and was not disappointed! Once all the FA's are sold, I'll offer this separately.

DA 16-45 f/4. SOLD $225. I bought this a few months ago on this forum (from EarlVonTapia) but haven't used it more than once. In fantastic shape, 9+/10. Includes original caps, hood and box, and a HOYA HMC UV (0) filter.
