Item Description
I purchased this lens new from B&H for $595 in August of last year. The silver was cheaper than the black version, so got the silver, though I would have preferred the black. Recently came across a perfect black version, and for some reason decided to get that one so I have matching colors Now I am not so sure they black really looks better than the silver - I actually like them both. However, keeping TWO FA43's just because of the color seems a little frivolous, so one has to go...

The lens is in excellent condition. The lens cap have some fluff in the green velvet, and the bayonet mounts shows some slight marks from mounting/unmounting. The rest of the lens is like new, and comes with original caps, box, pouch etc, as well as B&H receipt.

I am listing the SILVER version, though I would be willing to sell the black for $25 more. The black is in just as good a condition, though I don't have its full history. Serial numbers are close, so I assume they were both produced about the same time - i.e. recently. I did a thorough comparison of the two, and could find NO difference in their optical performance.

I will ship internationally. Call me for quotes. Expect shipping charges in the $30 to $40 range.

This is such a magnificent lens I almost wish I too had two. Almost.

Hope you'll find a nice new home for it!

I really should have been taking the pictures of the lenses as a pair. Silver and black together....

That silver does look sharp, doesn't it??? hmmm.
