[SOLD] Pentax FA50mm/1.7 lens (US)

Item for Sale
Pentax FA 50/1.7 lens

Asking Price

Item Location
Southern California, USA

Item Description
Pentax FA 50/1.7 lens in excellent condition - in every way except for some noticeable scratches on the outside of the barrel. It is also missing its serial number, a fact which the person I bought it from forgot to mention. However, I was so happy with its performance these minor flaws never bothered me (unlike another lens I once purchased with no serial number - an FA35/2 which was promptly returned). Everything works great, and the scratches would be hard for anyone to notice when you're using the lens, since they're black on a black barrel. It was rather hard for me to find this lens, and I think I got a good one.

The reason I'm selling it is because I have two other 50's now, and I really only need one AF copy (the F50/1.4), plus I just got an FA43. I still love this lens, but It's not getting much use now. I even sold my F50/1.7 a while back in favor of this one - they both were equally great performance-wise (I could never decide which was better, as hard as I tried) but somehow I just liked the feel of this one better.

I forgot to mention, the lens comes in the original box, with generic front and Asahi rear caps.

I can also post some photos this evening.

Photos of FA 50/1.7

Here are some quick photos of the lens taken with my Vivitar 105/2.5 macro under ordinary dining room table lighting. That way (by using the Vivitar) I could make it look worse than it is! As you can also see, the lens was made in Japan.
