FA 50 Macro at Adorama for $199
Posted By: mwilky55, 08-29-2015, 05:04 AM

Pentax SMCP-FA 50mm f/2.8 Macro Auto Focus Lens 1:1 Magnification

If any one is interested, I chanced upon this ad in the Adorama used department. This copy is rated in E+ condition. If you haven't seen one, this is a very solid metal lens, it's a macro but also a standard 50, and it is one of the sharpest lenses I own.

Here is the review on the forum.

I have one of these and like it. My three lens kit includes fa100Macro and a fast fifty in addition to a wide zoom.

I use mine at home for flat field photo or document copying.

Wow, great deal on what is probably the sharpest lens in the Pentax stable. If I didn't have on e already, I'd be jumping all over this.

That saves me the agonizing over if I should spend the money or not. Tax payment due in a few weeks

That's where I got my slightly lower-rated one a few months ago. It's a great place to bookmark
