Is it possible to get the hood for the FA*85 on its own? I have the lens, just had trouble finding the original hood.

KEH has one within your price range. Tax would bring it in around $375, depending on where you live.

I know it's too early to bump...but this lens is what dreams are made of. It is sharp wide open and oozes smooth bokeh. Used with flash, it has a very nice 3d pop. Manual focus with the K-1 II and the K-3 is a breeze with this lens.


Oh yea, that seller is one trustworthy guy who knows his stuff too.

Bumping this lens! This is a hard-to-find gem that is already great on crop, but excels on FF. These are becoming harder to find and they do hardly pop up in this state with original hood for less than a $1,000.

Hi,

I'm looking to find a great copy of this lens. I'm looking to replace the DA*55 since I'm moving to completely FF lenses. I don't have any problems with manual focus.

Thanks,
Brian

If you like longer manual focus glass, you can add a Samyang 135 f/2 to the mix, as it's a knock-out lens.

Get the DFA version if you are interested in the WR, as that'd help establish a nice WR-based batch of lenses for your kit. The lens is extremely sharp, even wide open, and produces great bokeh. The lens is compact and well-built too.

I replaced my Sigma 105 macro a few years back once the DFA had fallen to its lower price in the $400 ballpark, as it had been on my radar for a very long time.

Portrait lens for K-1

Where are you located? I know the FA*85 can be hard to find and I grabbed mine from KEH on a whim, since it doesn't come up often.

For day-to-day shooting, the 77 cannot be beat, as it is small, versatile, and renders images with superb detail and wonderful bokeh. The FA*85 is more of a workhorse portrait lens and is pretty sharp wide open, but beats the 77 at f/1.8. I sold my 77 shortly after getting the FA*85. It is a bit bulkier due to the heavier glass, but isn't too big.

Oh, if you like macros, either route you go, you can slap on a Raynox 250 and get some insanely great pseudo-macro images, as that is something I did a lot of when I had the 77.

Get both the FA77, or the FA*85, along with the Samyang 135mm f/2 and you'll be set. The 135 is a beast of a lens wide open and is a great complement to a shorter telephoto like the 77 or 85.

Looking to lighten the load so I can not just get the K1, but also move to shoot with primes almost exclusively.

I am surprised this hasn't sold yet either, as going through some photos of events I shot in 2017, I see how crazy sharp this lens is at all focal lengths, even wide open. It is a beaut of a lens. I don't want to keep it if I don't have to, as I do have the 17-50 as well and don't want to have 35mm covered by three lenses, inclusive of the mighty Sigma 35 f/1.4.
