Pentax FA*200 f2.8 Full Frame

Asking Price
750.00 USD

Item Description
I am selling this FA*200 f2.8 gem to purchase the new DFA 70-200. I listed it as "Good"condition. To be accurate, the external (paint) is Fair/Good with minor scratches on hood (see pics), but the internals... :-) I could honestly say are LIKE NEW. The owner before me, I really believe never removed the filter! The glass (throughout) is perfect. No problems with AF, etc. I also have the Sigma 70-200 2.8 and this is actually about 1/2 stop brighter at 2.8 for whatever reason. It focuses fast on K3, good for day sports, portraits, etc. If you would like to see pics taken with it, I can send you some. I have really enjoyed it.

Not too long ago I picked up an FA* 200/2.8 to replace the FA* 80-200/2.8 (which I used at 200mm probably 95% of the time) that I sold, and I have not had any regrets about my decision. The FA* 200/2.8 is a ~really~ sweet fast tele lens. Someone will likely thoroughly enjoy using one...

EDIT: I just thought I'd mention that I had to set the fine focus adjustment on my K-3 to +9 for this lens (not unlike the +10 I had to use for the FA* 80-200/2.8) for the sharpest images when wide open.

I agree I enjoyed! 2 examples... First at F2.8 - ISO 800 - 1/200 ; 2nd at F3.2 - ISO 100 - 1/3200

Here's one I took with my FA* 200/2.8 (and K-3) just last week -

First, here's a resized (and compressed) version, but with no other processing whatsoever -


And here's a link to the full-size, unprocessed image, straight out of the cam ...

I have this lens and it's the sharpest one I have. The colors it renders are also top notch. I've got to get out and use it more often.

p.s. although not a small lens, it's not as large as Kevwaly's pictures portray it, especially with the hood
