FA 77 Ltd., silver, early coating

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
FA 77 Ltd., silver, early coating

Asking Price
700.00 USD

Item Location
Montana (United States)

Item Description
I'm selling my Silver FA77 Limited - alas, I'm leaving the Pentax fold and returning to Fuji or I would not give up the FA77 *sob*

$700 ~ I purchased the silver FA77 here on the forums. It is an early serial number (with the early coating therefore) and in very good condition. Original lens cap, Pentax rear cap, no packaging or pouch.

As detailed in the ad I purchased it from, it has a very small mark on an internal element that is absolutely non-existent in terms of its effect on photos (not even f22 on a blank wall), but for full disclosure's sake, photos are below. From a use perspective, optically this lens is in excellent condition and I cannot recommend it highly enough.

If you want a pristine collection of the 3 amigos with all their trimmings, this 77 would feel under dressed to the party. But, if what you want is to take the absolutely fantastic photographs that only the FA77 Ltd. can take, with that extra special sprinkling of original lens coating pixie dust, this lens will take those photos without a single flaw and at a steep discount from a collector's item condition version

This is a chance to get the silver, early lens coating version of the FA77 at a great bargain price - jump on it!

Alas, I do not! Though I've had the 43 before and absolutely loved it. Shot with it exclusively for months Do not hesitate to acquire the moment you find one!

Giving up this 77 is making me cry :P People are getting scared off by the lens element flaw - but from a performance standpoint this lens is flawless *sniffle*

Much luck finding your 43! And Merry Christmas
