[SOLD] SMC Pentax-FA* 85mm F1.4 [IF]

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

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

Asking Price
$1100 USD

Item Description
I am selling a mint SMC Pentax-FA* 85mm F1.4 [IF]. I list the entire package as Like New only because I do not have the original box.

The lens itself is in mint condition. No scratches, fungus, or other marks on either the lens body, or glass. The hood has a few very small scratches that are difficult to see unless you are looking for them. Aperture blades are clean. Aperture ring is perfect. Focus is perfect. I can see no signs that the lens was even used before I purchased it.

The lens is incredible. Build and optical quality are superb. Working with such a fast, bright lens is a real treat.

I've owned the lens for only a short time. I'm selling to fund the purchase of a DA*50-135 which will better suit my needs and which I've wanted for some time.

Included is the lens, hood, caps, lens case, and manual. All original. I'm happy to answer any questions.

Thanks.

Never fails to amaze me when i see head-on shots looking through the glass just how WIDE the 85mm lens is compared to other Pentax lenses.

My second thought, after feeling the surprisingly pleasant heft of the lens (after owning mostly plastic lenses), was along the same lines as yours.

Thanks Frank. You (and your recent sale of the same lens) are a great encouragement.

This lens is not sold. Perhaps this message was meant for the other 85mm lens that did sell?

I have misred the "you have pm" line. Thought it would be a "I'll take it mail." Apparently it was not.

Consider this a free bump. Good luck selling!

I've lowered the price.

Having worked with the lens a little more, I'm even more impressed with its quality. This lens seems to be at its best when taking portraits. I may have mixed feelings about selling this.

Let me know if you have any questions.
