[SOLD] FA 43mm, DA 70mm, 18-55mm DA kit lens

Well, the best laid plans, they say.

I recently sold off my first set of Pentax lenses to get these primes, and now I'm headed back in the other direction. Not because these aren't awesome lenses. But I realized that my fledgling restaurant photography business needed two things more than these: a backup body (new K-X on the way!) and a car, since my 89 Honda gave up the ghost.

So I'm going back to a Sigma 24-60mm and nifty-fifty for the time being, though I'm keeping the 14/2.8 DA for wide angle interiors!

For sale:

FA 43mm f1.9

Bought just a few weeks ago from B&H. I used it once and love it. Very sharp, beautiful rendition. I'd call it Mint minus: the first/only time I used it, the metal cap rubbed up against another lens in my camera case and got a scuff (and there's a little edge of silvering on the lens cap too). You can see it in the photo above the A in Pentax. Below that is a fingerprint, not a permanent flaw. Methinks metal lenscaps are fancy but not perhaps the best idea for working photogs! Anyway, the lens and hood are as-new.

$515 shipped in the US.


DA 70mm f2.4
SOLD!

Bought used from KEH, Excellent condition. Which means excellent in real-world terms, I can't find a flaw on it apart from some dust. Works perfectly, and comes with both caps (metal cap is blemish free), hood and the little pouchette thing.

$410 shipped in the US.


DA 18-55mm Kit lens.

Not the ultra-cheap, plastic-mount DA-L lens, not the newfangled WR version, the middle of the road, sensible, worthy kit lens. I've got the 18-55 DA-L coming with the K-X, so this isn't needed. Comes with hood and both caps. Excellent condition.

$100 shipped in the US, or best offer.

I'd also consider a partial trade for a Pentax-F 50mm f1.7

I really really don't want to ship these across any border except to Canada. I just had a package literally disappear on its way to Russia, including vanishing from the tracking system. So I'm shy. Please don't ask, I hate to say no in person. US shipping included via UPS ground, insured.

3-day inspection period for all buyers. Combined shipping on any two lenses, cut $12 off the total price. Paypal, money order or personal check.

If you change your mind and decide you'd ship to Australia (which is definitely a safe shipping destination, on par with Canada) - let me know. I'm interested in the 43mm.

Hi,

If you change your mind re: cross border shipping I would be interested in the FA43. I'm in the UK.

Cheers

Rob

FA43 and kit lens are both still for sale. The FA43 is reduced to $500 shipped in the US.

The FA43 is heading north, pending payment.
