Pentax FA 77mm f1.8 Limited - Black - MIJ Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax FA 77mm f1.8 Limited - Black - MIJ

Asking Price
735 USD

Item Location
Vancouver, BC (Canada)

Item Description
For sale (or trade) is one Pentax FA 77mm f1.8 Limited lens. It is black and is of the type Made In Japan.
It comes complete with original box, original lens caps, original packing material, original pouch, and original paperwork.

Excellent +
No noticeable dust, no blemishes on the glass, both front and back.
Coatings are pristine both front and back.
Aperture blades are clean and snappy (as new). As an interesting aside I sent the first one back because it had a lazy blade. This one provides a nice symmetrical opening.
Aperture ring works as new.
Cosmetically, this lens is mint. That includes the pouch and the front lens cap. The rear lens cap is excellent +.

When I bought this lens, I took out the lens and the rear cap and placed the rest back in the box with all the original contents and stored them. Even the box is in excellent condition. I used a separate pinch style front cap on a step up ring for protection.

I used the lens on maybe half a dozen occasions, and the results are fantastic. Sharpness, rendering, all you read about. Sadly this lens is beyond my photography capability and I need the funds. As such, I am hoping a new owner will make use of it in a way that I should have.

In addition to $50, I am looking to acquire a Sigma 8-16mm F4.5-5.6 DC HSM with Pentax mount. I am looking for the same sort of package - box, near unused condition, no issues whatsoever including optically, cosmetically, mechanically, and so on.
