Up for sale is a lovely condition HD PENTAX-D FA 100mm f2.8 ED AW Macro Lens in Silver - this is the more recent AW version with the improved optical design and slightly faster AF, being the Limited Silver Edition I believe there are only 300 of these produced!

If you already have the WR version then there isn't a great deal of benefit in this "upgrade" - the biggest improvement is in the reduction of "purple fringing" and you can use the AF limiter option in the later firmware versions of certain DSLR's.

It's near mint condition, the only thing of minor note is some very slight marks on the lens hood (shame it's a plastic, silver coated hood and not a metal one like the FA Limiteds) - At this point it is being sold boxed with original hood and caps but without the Pentax lens pouch (when/if I find it I will include it - but can't find it at present).

These are sold new between about 589 and 699 and this model was released in 2022.

If anyone wants to see images I will add some later.

Here are some images from one of my Flickr albums:

What a beauty! But methinks its too pretty and too rare to risk getting it scratched while bug hunting in the undergrowth ... .

I can't find the soft case anywhere (why I didn't just leave it in the box I don't know) - so how about 399 for this pinnacle of Pentax 100mm Macro lenses
