    FS: Pentax smc FA 645 120mm f/4 Macro Lens

    This is a Pentax smc FA 645 120mm f/4 Macro lens in LNIB (like-new in-box) condition. This lens has not been used and is indistinguishable from a new lens from a Pentax dealer. The lens comes "as new" with front and rear caps, hood, pouch, (USA) papers and original box and packaging.

    I'm reducing the 645Z kit to those lenses that I use most often. The lenses I'm selling are either new (never used) or 9+ (used but in near-mint condition). Each lens comes with caps, hood, pouch (where applicable), papers and all the original packaging.

    Price $1,050, including shipping and PayPal fee. I cannot ship internationally. Contact me by PM or email ("joe dot colson at me dot com) if you are interested or have any questions.















    Thanks for looking.

    Joe

    The best of the best....both this Pentax 645 lens as well as the seller Joe. In my book that make a double win (or as some say a win-win situation) . Nice also to see this is from the latest production run, being produced from the recent Ricoh-Pentax aquasition. Therefore made and adjusted during the digital Pentax 645 era.

    I have been very tempted Joe and if I didn't already have a near mint 120 A lens for my 645D, I would jump on this one. Somebody please buy it before I end up with TWO 120 macros. It is a terrific lens for the 645 series cameras, whether film or digital.

    Gary my suggestion is go for it, you won't be disappointed Af has its advantages...especially when you are chased by a Kodiak bear and you want to capture frame by frame...all in focus. No way to do that with a MF lens. .

    Hi Dave!

    LOL....if I was being chased by a big Kodiak brown bear (or even a small one), the last thing I would be thinking about is getting the pic with my 645D. But even so, this lens is very, very tempting. I'm trying hard to resist....and you aren't making it any easier!

    Gary, you won't be disappointed. This is a fantastic lens, both used for macro and for short landscape tele and portraits. Dave ("D&A") is an experienced "enabler" and an expert on Pentax lenses.

    +1 on what a great performing lens the FA 120 macro is....especially in mid distance and closer range. It held its own against the Leica S macro in same focal length range. I did a head to head comparion of the two lenses simultaniously with their respective bodies.

    Joe, you wouldn't happen to have a perfectly working 645nII for sale as well, would you? If so, I would buy both the body and the lens from you.

    In fact, if someone has a mint 645nII for sale, let me know so I can buy it and then buy this lens from Joe!

    Unfortunately I don't have a 645nII. I'm shooting with the 645Z. It's my very first Pentax and I love it.

    Aargh.....it is already such an incredible deal. B&H price for the same lens is $1,597. I know there are Pentax 645 film and digital shooters here. Someone must need this lens....I simply want it. I will make you an offer Joe, but I hope you find a buyer who is willing to pay $900 for it, because the lens is certainly worth even more.
