Lenses for sale: D-FA 100 mm 2.8 Macro and DA 55-300 ED

Trying to shrink my collection a little, so two lenses for sale, both in excellent working condition.

The Macro was sold on this forum last year for 160, but unfortunately somewhere between leaving me and reaching the buyer it developed a dent in the filter thread. I refunded the buyer and took the lens back, and the new price reflects this minor flaw. The dent prevents the lens from taking filters but its optical performance is completely unaffected. There is light dust throughout with no fungus. Held to the light I can make out two extremely faint scratches on the rear element, but again these don't affect performance in any way.

The 55-300 is in excellent condition, very light dust and no discernible marks to the front or rear element. It comes with original hood.

Both lenses come with front and rear caps.

I'd like 90 for the macro and 100 for the 55-300, both pus 4 postage (RM 1st class tracked).

Both lenses will be very, very well packaged - no more dents!

Please get in touch if you have any questions,

Bargain on that macro lens - same optics as the 100mm WR and a whole lot cheaper, good luck Mag

There seems to be some confusion in this thread. The macro lens shown is an FA not a D-FA and is from a totally different era to the WR lens mentioned.

If the OP can confirm the model details I'll change the heading for you.
Best regards, John

Thank you John, and apologies for any confusion. The macro lens has actually just sold, with the buyer aware that they're getting an FA!

55-300 still available.

I have the 50mm version of that and it's a really fine sharp lens.

Hi Roli, I might ship to Europe depending on location, but obviously postage costs would be higher.

Thank you Magdalena for the feedback, I hope you enjoy the lens when you get back home.
