FS: Pentax SMC FA 100mm f2.8 Macro


Link Posted 22/06/2019 - 22:19
I'm selling my FA100/2.8 Macro as I have far too many 100 macro's and not enough hands or time to use them all - this one is in good condition with caps (no case), there is some dust in the optics - only tends to make a difference when shooting into a light source, otherwise it has no noticeable impact. Focus is typical for an FA series, aperture blades are clean and responsive, the focus lock works as it should, it is a real pleasure to use.

It's excellent at maximum aperture, allowing very thin depth of field yet retaining sharpness. Here are a few examples of it's results:

1. at f7.1.

2. at f8 (in full, glaring sunlight.

3. at f5.6.

4. at f2.8.

5. at f2.8.

6. at f2.8

7. at f7.1.

If I didn’t have my 100mm WR Macro I’d be all over this.
This should’ve gone a few price drops ago!
