FA 31mm Limited Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
FA 31mm Limited

Asking Price
600.00 USD

Item Location
Starkville, MS (United States)

Item Description
I bought this lens from another forum member earlier this year. He bought it last year from Adorama. He was going to a full frame system and sold all his gear. I bought this lens from him and it has a slight wobble in it (not at hood). He had been using it and said it worked fine. I immediately sent it to CRIS and they replaced the guide steeds. They sent it back with the wobble still in it. I sent it to Ricoh, they tested it and said everything was fine with it. I haven't even used it because I can't deal with any wobble in it. I just feel like it's not going to be sharp or something. Like I said, the previous owner thought there was no problem with it.

Are you the original owner of the item being sold?

Are you selling or trading this item?

It might help if you could post some photos taken with the lens.

already have one, but it is still tempting... is the wobble on the aperture ring? If so, that's pretty normal

Hmm I've had two of these, both had a slight wobble noise/feel in them. Not saying yours is fine, I don't know.

I've been wanting to try one of these for a while now, to see what all the fuss is about. If my photography piggy bank wasn't empty right now, I would probably buy this. Good luck!
