[SOLD] FS: DA 35mm Limited macro or FA 77mm Limited

Okay, I decide to get a Sony 70-200mm lens, so I need to sell a lens to justify it to my "treasurer". So it's either the FA 77 or the DA 35.

1. FA 77 Limited: It's in mint condition. Everything is included. I also have an extended warranty from Mack (6 years left). You need to do the transfer yourself (I think that's an additional $20).

$580 + shipping + (5% Paypal or 2% Google) FIRM

Product's Pictures: (I used the 35 to capture these pictures)







2. DA 35 Limited Macro: Well, I received it yesterday. I did some test shots today. And it's as sharp as my VL125 at wide open and f/4. It's a neat lens, but the zoom is more important.

$402 + shipping + (5% Paypal or 2% Google) FIRM SOLD

Product's Pictures: (I used the 77 to capture these pictures)







Sorry for the DMV style, too lazy to properly set up for the shoot.

Product's and sample pictures will be posted upon request.

I own copies of both of these lenses, and both are total keepers. The 77 is magic. For under a grand someone could have a setup (assuming you have a body) that will cover a LOT of ground. If I were starting from scratch with a prime setup, these would be the first two out of the gate without hesitation.

you sure you want to sell them?

I have the FA* 85 to cover the 77, and I use my 85 much more. The 35, however, is a very handy lens indeed. But I already have 3 other macros and the 31. So the zoom is still more important. I can always get these two back later. This time I'll get a silver one .

Well I can wait for a few days. I'll get the zoom next week (BH is on vacation).

Technically, if I get one lens out and one lens in, it's in equilibrium . No lens addition.
