Got my hands on what appeared to be a good copy of Pentax FA* 85mm lens.

I think it had not been used for a long time. Would not operate in AF mode. Lens has a setting for AF. So I used it in the manual mode for a while, and kept on going back to AF. Now AF is working intermittently. May need to be serviced I guess.

Has anybody experienced this before? I would assume not, since why would anybody leave such a lens unused for any length of time!


Hot did you switch AF of FA*85 ?
