FA 77mm Silver MIJ; Like new Sigma 8-16mm UWA..*Price Drop

Two great lenses up for grabs...

1) SMC Pentax-FA 77mm F1.8 Limited Silver Made In Japan copy

* I recently acquired a low serial number silver 77mm that I will keep so now I have 2 of these silver limiteds and as a result here is your chance to have my first beautiful silver MIJ copy since this twin "princess" must find a new home.

- Gorgeous condition throughout: body in excellent condition , optically excellent (no haze/fungus/oil/scratches on lens elements)
- Front lens cap in very good condition, has some small marks but nothing major
- Comes with original front and rear caps only, no box or pouch but I will include a "LensCoat" branded pouch

$610 out the door.........................SOLD



2) Sigma 8-16mm F4.5-5.6 DC HSM with newer lens body finish

* I have completely decided to let this wonderful UWA lens go since I've convinced myself I have enough options in wide angle territory and I want to explore the other end of the spectrum as well, which is a bit lacking from my current lineup. So even though I will probably regret this later I am going ahead with it and now is a chance for someone to pick up this unique lens.

- Bought from a PF member early last year and I haven't really used it that much, certainly not enough for me to justify keeping it.
- Almost like new condition throughout: body in immaculate condition, optically excellent (no haze/fungus/oil/scratches on lens elements)
- Interesting and unique FOV (widest rectilinear for Pentax APS-C) and an overall great copy
- Box and all accessories included

$480 out the door.........................................SOLD

Wow, too bad my budget is still recovering from moving up to the K3 and new base lenses. That Sigma looks very tempting, but well out of my current budget...

I find my Sigma 8-16mm a very useful lens as your examples show. It's a solid ultra wide angle that provides great results - nice color and contrast, sharp images, even center-sharp wide open.

By the way, your cell phone seems pretty decent too. Nice, clear images of the lenses.

You sure aren't making this any easier for me to part with this lens. I don't know how many times I've gone back and forth over this

Somebody grab this lens before I start to think it over again!
