Hi all,

After a brief absence from this forum I return with good news that has sad consequences.

I recently found out that I'm going to become a father for the first time, and whilst I am absolutely thrilled, finances dictate that I need to shift some gear. Unfortunately for me, the only stuff in the house with any sort of value is my Pentax gear, so here goes...


First up, my K20D and D-BG2 grip, bought from Unlocker (Danny) on this very forum just a few months ago. This is a fantastic example of a K20D, literally not a mark on it or the grip. Shutter count is around 15k. I won't bore you with the spec as I'm sure you all know it. Comes with boxes and all original contents (like the camera and grip, this is all in immaculate condition). I'll also throw in two spare batteries (making three in total). Got it for a very good price (considering condition), which I'm happy to pass on. £400 including Special Delivery in the UK.


Next up is my Pentax D-FA 100mm macro. Absolutely stunning lens. Little use since bought new, so immaculate condition. Comes boxed, with all original box contents (this includes Pentax pouch, hood and both lens caps). A great example of this lens. Looking for £275 including Special Delivery in the UK.


Also for sale my Pentax 50mm 1:1.4. My favourite lens, just so versatile. Immaculate condition. Comes boxed, with all original box contents (this includes both lens caps). Looking for £200 including Special Delivery in the UK.


Next up my Pentax 18-55mm WR lens. This is the kit lens that comes with the K7, it's unbelievable quality for a kit lens and unbeatable for the money. Weather Resistant of course, so a good match for the K20D. Immaculate condition. Comes boxed with all original box contents (this includes hood and both lens caps). Looking for £50 including Recorded Delivery in the UK.


Next is my Pentax 50-200mm WR lens. The second K7 kit lens, and a very useful Weather resistant telephoto lens. Paired with the 18-55mm above you have a very versatile and durable lens line-up which you can take anywhere. Immaculate condition. Comes boxed with all original box contents (this includes hood and both lens caps). Looking for £100 including Special Delivery in the UK.


Last "big" item is my Pentax AF-360FGZ flash. Great flash, works seamlessly with the K20D on and off camera. Ideal for first dedicated flash purchase or to supplement other flashes. Immaculate condition. Comes boxed with all original box contents (this includes leather Pentax pouch). Looking for £125 including Special Delivery in the UK.


Photos of all the above can be provided on request, didn't want to make the thread to bulky and slow by putting them up.


Also for sale are a few associated bits and pieces, as follows:


Sto-fen "replica" kit for AF-360FGZ. Includes standard white diffuser, as well as orange and green varieties for tungsten and fluorescent lighting. Also includes fabric diffuser for portraits. £16 on eBay, looking for £12.50 delivered.


Kata 3N1-20 camera bag. Absolutely superb camera bag. A sling-type bag that can be used either shoulder or convert to a rucksack. Highly customisable interior, comfortable holds all the above equipment. As new condition. £70-£80 new, looking for £60 including UK delivery.


Pentax Remote Control F. Really handy bit of kit (especially as the K20D has front and rear IR sensors), and it fits in the D-BG2 grip! Can't find the box, but the remote itself looks brand new. Looking for £10 delivered in the UK.


There may well be some other bits as I sort through stuff...

I have sold a few bits and pieces on this forum in the past and would like to think that I have always been honest in my descriptions, and always packed the items well!

Any question please ask.
If you can't say something nice about Pentax, you won't say anything at all.

PM replied.

Forgot to mention, I prefer to use Paypal (fees buyers end), but would accept bank transfer or cheque (please note that funds would have to clear before I sent the items, this means 5 days for cheques).

I really wish I didn't have to.

I will be able to borrow my mum's Samsung GX 1L though, so all is not lost!

Congratulations, and I'm only sorry I don't need any of the kit you have on offer.

Which model is the 50mm 1:1.4?

It's the FA 50mm 1:1.4. Guess I should have mentioned that!
