[SOLD] Pentax FA* 85/1.4 85mm F1.4 Lens Mint In Box

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax FA* 85/1.4 85mm F1.4 Lens Mint In Box

Asking Price
1350 USD (SOLD!)

Item Description
Selling a mint condition FA*85/1.4 lens, known as one of the best portrait lenses ever made by all camera/lens makers. I won't say too much about this lens, you should know how good it is if you are looking at this ad

The lens is in absolute mint condition except only one obvious sign of use: a very small paint loss at the bottom of the lens, right below the serial number, where the Pic5 shows, due to mount the lens on tripod. Other than that, it'd be really hard to see any obvious sign of use at all on either the lens barrel or the lens hood. Glass is like new w/ no mark at all, had filter on since day one. The lens is as good as it can get for a used lens I think. It comes w/ lens pouch, box, and a high quality Pentax original SMC Skylight filter too, which is hard to find by itself.

Selling the lens due to lack of use. Need cash urgently for some family issues (otherwise I won't be selling it).

These are amazing shots. No doubt the lens is great, as is the price. Too bad the crunch is crunching my wallet, too!

frank, I hope your lens gets a new home.

I can personally vouch for franks as a reliable and reputable seller. Among Pentax users in Singapore, we all look to him as a big brother for his wealth of first hand knowledge of things Pentax.

This is an excellent lens that is a must have.

I'd love to get this lens to recreate the FA* 85 vs 77 Ltd showdown. I would use my father and then we'd see whether the lenses still perform the same or whether they depend on the father being used

Best of luck, Frank!
