Pentax FA 31 Limited-Further Price Reduction...

Hello All,

Unfortunately other needs have taken priority over my two favorite lenses. I am listing for sale my FA 77 and FA 31 limited lenses. They were bought back in May of this year from BH photo. The 77 was new and the 31 was used, both are in excellent condition. I have literally used the 77 for about 100 shots (tho some of my absolute favorite) and the 31 for about 140 shots (including two jobs), so they are both basically in the same condition I bought them in the 77 being new. They are both AIV lenses. This is the first time I have owned lenses assembled in Vietnam vs. Japan and I can honestly say I don't see any difference. I owned two other 31's in the past both from Japan and this lens is just as sharp at 1.8 as the others. They both have a very special way of rendering and make an unbelievable portrait combo, unfortunately I need the money for something else at the moment. I am including pictures of both to show they are basically in perfect condition. Prices shown will include shipping and insurance with the CONUS. I have 100% positive feedback here on this forum and eBay as well (for over 10 years under guitarmes if you would like to check). Please email me with any questions you may have, upon receipt of payment I will have the lens out to you the following day. I can send examples of pics taken with both upon request. The lenses are sold "as-is" there are no returns but really are in excellent condition and will come exactly as described. Thanks for looking.

FA 31 Ltd. - $925, including shipping and insurance
FA 77 Ltd. - $750, including shipping and insurance

Sorry forgot to add all payments are via PayPal at rick.m77@icloud.com. Shipping will be via USPS or ups. Thx

Examples

I figured I would go ahead post two examples. The newborn shot was with the 31 at 1.8 and the portrait outside was with the 77 at 1.8. Both tack sharp.

Friendly bump. I can vouch for Rick as a great seller. I bought his FA 43 last year and it is one of my best and most-used lenses! Good luck with the sale... and sorry to hear you have to sell these two great lenses to raise some money. Hopefully you'll be able to reacquire them someday.
