SMCP FA 43/1.9 Ltd MIJ (sold) and Sigma EX DG 24-60/2.8 (withdrawn)

Hi!

I haven't been posting for quite a while here. My photography interests shifted to Leica M-mount and mirrorless cameras.So, I am offering for sale some gear that does not find the use it deserves.

1. Sigma EX DG 24-60/2.8 (asking USD 325 --> USD 300) --> USD 285 --> USD 280 --> WITHDRAWN

The lens was bought from another list member. It has seen moderate use, but no abuse. It comes with the original box, original pouch, both caps, and also the Sigma UV DG filter for protection. On my K-5, I had to dial -5 points focus correction. Beside that, an excellent lens - well built, good image quality.

If you're gearing up for Pentax FF body, this could be a very good fast standard zoom lens for you.

2. Pentax SMC FA 43/1.9 Limited, MIJ (asking USD 375) SOLD

I am the original owner of this lens. It comes with both caps, the screw on hood, pouch - everything. As you can see from the pictures, I don't use the hood and I don't use the original lens cap. So, for your convenience, I will include that regular lens cap that I bought for it. Also, it comes with matching 49 mm SMC protection filter - shown on the pictures as well.

I find that I use FA 50/1.4 on my K-5 and A 50/1.2 on my Ricoh GXR instead of this lens... I kind of prefer my standard lens to be as fast as possible.

Some terms:
1. Prices are all inclusive - PayPal fees and shipping is included in the price.
2. The lens will be shipped by Israeli EMS postal service with full insurance and full tracking. I will declare actual value of the lens so that it can be properly insured. All this, as I said, is on me.
3. If you buy both lenses, I will naturally combine shipping charges accordingly and ship both in one box. Unless you explicitly instruct me otherwise.
4. The items are sold as is, no refunds, no returns. Please be sure ask as many questions as you find necessary to be confident that you're buying a good gear. I will do everything possible within reason to answer all your questions.

The photos below are of course, of the actual lenses offered in this post.

Bump to the top. The FA 43/1.9 Ltd is pending sale. Sigma 24-60/2.8 is still available. This is dandy lens - grab it while you can. The FF camera has been announced - this is most likely going to be very good standard zoom lens for it.

Bump up. Just checked KEH.com prices - my asking price is more than fair... So - do send me a PM. You will not regret buying this lens.

Final bump before I withdraw the listing. Just yesterday, I shot some 250 frames with this lens. It is quite excellent, and I will gladly keep using it. So, this is your last chance for now. Feel free to make me an offer, but notice that low balling will not get you very far.
