Pentax A* 85mm f1.4

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax A* 85mm f1.4

Asking Price
950.00 USD

Item Location
Alberta (Canada)

Item Description
I obtained this beautiful lens from this marketplace a while ago to try it out. Although it felt right at home on my MX, I do prefer my smaller portrait lenses and I can't justify keeping this one.

I'd say this lens is in very good condition. The focus and aperture rings move and click nicely, respectively. I can't spot any scratches, cleaning marks, or fungus on the glass. There are a few dozen particles of dust throughout, but that is to be expected with such a large lens, and they definitely won't show up in your images. The body of the lens has some very minor wear marks, but no significant scratches or dents at all. If you'd like additional photos, please let me know!

The purchase price includes tracked and insured shipping to Canada and the USA. If you live somewhere else, let me know and I'll calculate a shipping cost for you. I'll pick up the Paypal fee.

Let me know if you have any questions!

I know this pain, because I bought it from the States... it was too special a chance to give up! Just looking to minimize my losses now.

This is a crazy sharp lens and the hood can be hard to find. Nice looking copy here from what I can tell. I love mine and FF will make them more interesting...

The lens is spectacular.

Good luck with the sale. I have one already, otherwise I would consider.
