Pentax A 85mm f1.4 on ebay
Posted By: onlineflyer, 06-05-2016, 05:57 AM

This seems to be a sought after lens, starting bid at $700. Interesting what the final price will be. If anyone is interested, follow the link.

I am not the seller and have no contact/knowledge of seller.

I was thinking about you when I posted this, Phil. Just do it.

If you don't, I may have to.

The M24-35/3.5 is a great zoom and only at $49.00 with one bid. That's a very good price.

Yes but there's still a lot of time left. Most often, the real bids come in the last seconds but I suspect someone will get a good buy on this lens.

Yes it did.

I've been toying with buying an FA77 for the past couple of weeks going back and forth on it. Just not sure how much use I'd get for a $700+ investment since I don't do much portrait work at all, at least not yet. For $160 including shipping it's absolutely worth it to see if it's useful to me or not. If not it may show up in the Marketplace in a few weeks.

Thanks!
