35mm 645 A

I'm trying to find a 35mm 645 A at a reasonable price.

B&H, Adorama and KEH have little or no inventory. There is one listed on the Marketplace forum but the seller hasn't responded to my PM or Reply. There are quite a few on eBay from Japan but I'd rather buy from one of you if possible.

I'm hoping you guys who have bought the FA or one of the zooms might have an A sitting around gathering dust!

Thanks for reading the post and hopefully I will hear from one of you soon.......Mark

Sorry Mark, I've got one and it is one of my two favorite lenses. NFS. It's a true gem and is worth the patience and time to find one. Best of luck!!!

I have one which needs work, as the aperture ring feels unusually loose. Bought it cheaply for that reason (200) because I thought I'd be able to fix it when I needed the lens. I was familiar with the lens previously when I had a 645N.
However, for several medical reasons I will not be buying into the 645D/Z after all so I am going to sell it.
Downside is, it's in the UK. I don't mind taking it back as a guarantee, but I don't want to spend on postage. Perhaps I should have it fixed locally first.

Hi bluefin,

I have one in lovely shape along with the original hood (rubber). I find myself not really shooting landscapes with my 645n, so this has really sat (Pelican case) unused.

PM me if you are still looking and might be interested in my copy.
