Where was it sold? Did it go that quick? I don't remember seeing it listed here in the Marketplace. Either congrats to you both it's an amazing little lens.
Yeah, I didn't expect to actually find one and was perusing old listings on here in hopes to find an unsold one. Sometimes all it takes is to ask. Great lens!

I've purchased many things that I otherwise wouldn't have if I didn't ask. I'm happy for you I'm sure it'll be a keeper .

Haha that's hilarious. No one bothered to check the manufacturer's website if it's available. Not only is it available but it's much cheaper than the Amazon price.

Reminds me of a saying in my language that roughly translates to having your baby under your arm but searching the whole town for it.

Nice find!

Now that is something new and the pricing is a pleasant surprise as well. The FA 35/2 disappeared from the N. America market about a year ago and was priced at in the low $500s at that time IIRC. Ricoh, USA must have added the lens to the site within the last couple of weeks.
