Pentax FA 43 Ltd Black

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax FA 43 Ltd Black

Asking Price
550.00 USD

Item Location
Texas (United States)

Item Description
I bough this from a PF Forum Member here a couple of years back..he had purchased it new and it was in perfect condition as he declared...it still is!

I bought it for use in my little Downtown Studio, and for the year I was there it was one of my two most favorite lenses for portrait work, just superb! A delight to use, and with results that never disappointed.
( My other favorite was my DA*50-135...I'll be listing that soon too)

I've since closed my studio and have drifted into the world of Toy Cameras, where I now shoot 90% of all I shoot using an X10/X20. I haven't used most of my Pentax lenses in over a year, so there is no use in them being lonely and unused in my lens cabinet.

The recent review of the 43 Ltd says more than I can write here, but I will add that it has been a genuine pleasure to own and I would love to see it thrill some new Pentax shooter!

Most everyone here knows old Rupert, you can buy with confidence and your purchase will be shipped very promptly. As usual, I will add that Otis is not involved in this transaction in any manner...also adding NEVER buy anything from Otis, here or on E-Bay or anywhere else!

Best Regards!
Rupert

Not to be offtopic, but who's Otis?

If you don't know Otis, you are better off for it, believe me! Some love Otis...some hate Otis...those that don't know Otis are in the best of both worlds!

Regards!

BTW-For those interested, on the front of the lens it says MADE IN JAPAN.

Does this mean it is mythically better than an AIV?

Beats me? For some I guess it makes a difference? All I know is that it is a fantastic lens, no matter where it was made!

Regards!

BTW- Will someone get that photo of Otis off there and my lovely 43Ltd back where it was? That's what I mean about Otis...better if you don't know him, he gets into everything!

Nope. The only perceived difference is in 'collectability'.

Maybe...but not for long. When Otis whistled and his Army of Squirrels surrounded your cat, the fun would be short lived!
These guys spent a month in Texas and were trained by Otis and his Army.......

Best Regards!

I don't know how that photo of Otis replaced my beautiful 43 Ltd photo, but when Otis is around strange things happen...most of them not good.

Sale pending....you guys should have snapped at this lens, it's a jewel!
Next up will be my DA* 50-135.....you don't want to miss it! If you shoot portraits, this lens is a dram come true!

Regards!
