Item Description
I bought this lens new from ebay. It's in excellent cosmetic condition but I'd rate the optics as 'good' only.

It has the FA lens "tiny bubbles" anomaly, which seems to appear once in a while. However these bubbles never appeared in my images and doesn't seem to affect much.
https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/pentax-slr-lens-discussion/58781-fa-43-lt...ed-return.html.

There's a circular smudge on the rear element of the lens, I'm not sure what caused it, might be my rubber rear cap rubbing against it. I can't clean it with lens pen but heard that it's possible that a tiny bit of windex on paper towel might fix this. I'm not going to try this so you should use your own judgment. This smudge has never appeared on my images.

There's a ~ .5cm silver(?) thread stuck inside the lens where I think is outside the image plane, so it shouldn't affect the images. I dont think removing it should be any problem if you decide to open it.

Comes with Front and Back caps.

Last pic shows the only imperfection I can find on the body. A hairline scratch that isn't noticable unless you look for it.
