[SOLD] [Worldwide] Pentax FA 1:2 35mm AL lens Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax FA 1:2 35mm AL lens (Near Mint)

Asking Price

Item Location
Tokyo, Japan

Item Description
SMC Pentax FA 1:2 35mm AL lens with box and papers and only 8 months old

Item condition:
- Used, near mint.
- No scratches on optics.
- No fingerprints, smears, etc. on optics.
- No fungus or fogging on optics. (Internal and external)
- No oil on aperture blades.
- All functions operate normally and smoothly.
- No visible scratches or rub marks.
- No visible dust inside the lens that I can detect.

I would rate the overall condition of this lens as near mint. Mechanically and optically sound, with exterior appearance in superb condition. As close to mint as you can get.

This lens still has four months of manufacturer's warranty left. However, I'm not certain if Pentax has international warranty, so please check with your local service agent.

I have tested this lens on my K-7 DSLR and found no focussing issues. However, as front/back focus issues are lens and camera specific, it may not be as accurate on your camera. If your camera allows, you may need to make micro adjustments (Please refer to your camera manual).

I have described the condition as accurately as possible. You MAY notice other small marks and scratches that I have considered to be insignificant, but please keep in mind that this item has been used and as such, bears the blemishes of its consequences.
