[SOLD] FS: SMC Pentax FA* 200mm F2.8

It's really hard for me to letting this one go, but I need fund for something else, and can't afford keeping all these great lenses (w/o using them much). After getting the DA*50135/2.8, I feel I probably wouldn't use the FA*200/2.8 as often. Decide to let this one go, again. Probably would get one back in the future ...

The lens is like new condition w/ almost no sign of use. Only a very tiny mark on the hood (which isn't that obvious at all if don't look carefully). The lens itself is as good as new. Comes w/ Pentax front and rear caps, hood, and original lens case.

LENS HAS BEEN SOLD!

Gorgeous shots! I am crying. My LBA has been overused recently. Would you take $1 a month for 1,500 months?

Wow beautiful shots, as skillful as ever, Frank . You make me want to buy this lens. I have to resist, have to stick with my dream lens, can't go off track. Some must take this before I change my mind.

Yeah, I wish I had something else to sell to cover the cost of new purchases. Probably an A50/1.2?

The lens will be sent over through EMS. I can mark down its value (to avoid/reduce import tax) if you want But my experience w/ shipment to Italy is that the package will take quite some days to get cleared at your Custom. Please do bear this in mind

Good luck.

I've been saying the same thing (that my current kit is what I need) all the time, but I just can't stop getting new stuff in (and out)
