SMC Pentax-FA* 85mm F1.4 [IF] Lens Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
SMC Pentax-FA* 85mm F1.4 [IF] Lens

Asking Price
1,000.00 USD

Item Location
Singapore (Singapore)

Item Description
Haven't sold anything here for a very long time. As a matter of fact, haven't posted on PentaxForums for very long. Well, since K1 is here, I guess I'm back too

Selling this fantastic lens due to lack of use. Need cash for a longer lens for my newly bought K1. The lens is in excellent condition w/ minor use marks as shown in photos. Other than a 1mm internal dust (as shown in last photo), optical condition is about perfect, and of course we all know such dust won't affect image quality at all. The lens works great in every aspect: focusing is fast and accurate, pictures taken are just as good as you can get from a camera like K1.

It comes w/ hood, front and rear caps, plus a high quality B+W MRC F-Pro filter which is in mint condition:

I purposely under exposed a bit on some of the photos so to show the scratches/marks more clearly. They'd look much nicer if I took photos like those you see on eBay.

Haven't seen this lens sold much here or on eBay, don't know how much I should ask for. But I guess $1000 including all fees (paypal fee and EMS shipping which is EXPENSIVE!) is fare. Please pm if interested.

Thanks and cheers!

omg... this is such an awesome lens - it is a keeper-count doubler even for an average portrait artist, but in the right hands its simply recreates magic. On my K3, it needs a +7 fine adjustment. Best wishes to the lucky buyer.
