[SOLD] [Worldwide] Pentax FA 35mm f/2 AL Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax FA 35mm f/2 AL

Asking Price
410 USD

Item Location
Dayton, Ohio, USA

Item Description
For sale is a like-new copy of the Pentax FA 35mm f/2 AL. I purchased this lens brand new from B+H in 2007. It includes the original front and rear caps, hood, and pouch. I don't have the box or papers, which is unusual as I'm a compulsive box-keeper.

The lens in in excellent condition, with no scratches or scuffs anywhere. The lens elements are perfect, with no scratches or fungus. The focus is silky smooth, the aperture ring clicks positively throughout its range, and the aperture blades are snappy and oil-free. Everything about this lens is as good as the day I bought it.

Below are a few pictures of the item, plus one photo taken with this lens and my K100D. (Yes, I know I focused behind the flower's stamen, but I still like the picture.)

I'll be honest...I really don't want to part with this. I look back at my photo library and realize this lens has taken some of my absolute favorite photos, especially the low-light candids of my family. It's a great lens, as good as everytone says it is, and I really can't imagine not having a fast normal prime anymore. But I also realize that it doesn't see much action anymore. The FA35 is too good a performer to sit around unused, while I hold onto it just for the sake of owning one. I'd rather get it in the hands of someone who can really put it to use.

Because I'm not too excited to put this up for sale, I'm not the most motivated seller in the world. I know what the fair market value of this lens is, and my asking price will remain firm...for a while, at least.

I accept PayPal only. PayPal fees are my responsibility (I'd never dream of charging the buyer for something that makes my life easier!). I'll ship the item within one business day of receiving payment via USPS Priority Mail, with insurance and delivery confirmation.

Thanks for looking. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have questions.
