[SOLD] Pentax FA 100/2.8 Macro in like new condition + bonus filter set

The FA 100/2.8 was my first macro lens! This is now a rare lens to find, let alone in like new condition...

Since I own the FA* 200/4 Macro, that has become my macro lens of choice, especially for the type of work I do. Comes with the original box (if you want it)and pouch - the pouch is also in like new condition.

This lens has excellent clarity, contrast and sharpness. It has a focus limiter MF/AF witch, plus the clamp dial.

BONUS: Tiffen 4 filter set (58mm) worth $80 - $100. Includes the CPL, UV, 812 Warming, and Enhancing filters. UV Filter has been on it since day one. Unless someone specifically wants the filter set on it's own, it comes as a package deal. The CPL is wonderful for allowing harsh mid-day lighting for your macro work - no blown highlights. The 812 is excellent for portraits/indoor flash work - gets rid of bluish skin tones....

Total Price: $500 (PRICE REDUCED). This includes shipping and insurance to any place worldwide. No longer in production. Cosmetically it looks new, outside and inside. This would be my second macro lens of choice. PayPal only please.

Pics of the lens can be posted if you really need me to do that. All you'll see is flawless optics...

I mayl also be selling a very nice Giottos tripod MT9360 (I have two of them, so one needs to go now that I'm done the competition). Too much stuff, so it's time to clean house. Quite possibly a real gem of a lens may go up for sale too...

Regards,
Marc

Price Reduction

PRICE REDUCTION: now $500. That's the original MSRP of just the lens. Includes shipping + insurance within the US. Still includes the package deal with the filter set.

Next stop is eekbay...

I can vouch for the quality of this lens and I think it's a reasonable price. I had both this lens and the Tamron SP 90mm f/2.8 macro--which is itself superb--and I sold the Tamron.

Thanks Buffy for the recommendation of this lens.

Last call... off to Ebay very, very soon (unless LBA grips me and I cannot part with it for some odd reason!).
