[SOLD] Pentax FA 43mm Limited Silver (US/CAN) Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax FA 43mm Limited Silver

Asking Price
490 USD

Item Location
Toronto, Canada

Item Description
I bought this lens a few years ago but rarely used it. It has been confined to its box for the most part.

It is not mint because the finish around the front element is worn in several spots and there's a small smudge on the focus distance ring. (see picture attachments) There are two tiny nicks on the front lens cap.

Dust ingress is minimal. I've only detected two noticeable particles, one on the inside of the front and the other on one of the rear elements, neither should affect optical performance.

Mechanicals are good and focus ring turns smoothly. No scratches, haze, or fungus on the glass. Aperture blades are clean and operate smoothly.

This is one of the earlier versions of the FA43 that came with the brown case. Made in Japan.

Also comes with original metal screw-in lens hood, original box, original soft case, and FA manual. Silver limited front cap and rear Asahi cap (I am not sure if the latter is original).

Please buy only if you're comfortable with a lens that is not in 100% pristine cosmetic condition.

Are you the original owner of the item being sold?

Are you selling or trading this item?

I already have the FA 43 in black and I'm still tempted! I'm sure you'll have no trouble selling this beauty--good luck from a follow Torontonian!
