FS - Pentax K-3, lenses and accessories

Posted 27/04/2020 - 20:54 Link
Regrettably I am having to self-isolate for 12 weeks and also need a lighter system as the condition I have affects both joints and stamina. Therefore I am selling the following Pentax equipment to fund a change in system I have pondered for many weeks. It has all been well cared for, and each item will come in the original packaging/box with manual and paperwork.

Pentax K-3 - excellent condition, shutter count only 8,003. Body cap, leads, charger, strap, manual 2 batteries (one Pentax, one DSTE). I can only find one mark on the body, approx 1mm where paint has come off for some reason. £360

Pentax DA*300 f/4 lens – excellent/mint condition. Both caps, hood & Pentax S120-210 soft pouch. Went back to SRS under warranty as developed problem with loose front element and was returned immaculate and working perfectly. Optics virtually dust-free. Tripod foot has no paint missing. Only thing I can find is a really minor scuff to the lens hood, not really obvious or visible. No SDM issues whatsoever. A lovely, sharp lens to use, most of my nature photos have been taken with this over the last 2 years (and the 1.4 HD TC since last year). £500

Pentax D-FA 100mm f/2.8 Macro WR – excellent/mint condition. Both caps, hood & Pentax S80-120 soft pouch. Optics virtually dust-free. An extremely sharp lens in use, combines very well with the 1.4x TC. £260

Pentax smc DA 18-135 f3.5-5.6 DC WR – excellent condition. Both caps, hood and Pentax S80-160 soft pouch. Very light dust in optics. Quick and silent focussing lens – extremely versatile. £185

Pentax HD DA AF Rear Converter 1.4x AW – excellent/mint condition. Both caps and pouch. Used with DA*300 and 100WR Macro with no discernible loss of image quality. £190

Pentax O-GPS1 Astro Tracer/GPS Unit – excellent condition, used on a handful of occasions. Will also include a genuine Pentax viewfinder cover. £95

Pentax O-ME53 Magnifying Eyecup – 1.2x magnification. Great for macro work, I found it really useful with the DA*300 as well for butterflies. £15

Pentax D-BG4 Battery Grip (For K5/K5ii/K5iis/K7) – excellent condition, hardly used. With AA insert. £40

Postage will be via RMSD at cost if I can find a way of getting it to the Post Office, otherwise I will use a UPS next day service which can be collected. I will only charge whichever is the lower of the 2 costs.

Photos will be added in the next day or so as soon as I can take some with the boxes etc. We are a smoke-free home.

It’s been a tough decision to make after 11 years shooting Pentax digitally but I am keeping my K5iiS, K200D, K1000 and a couple of manual lenses so it’s not a total farewell. Thanks for looking.

Ebay do have a £1 selling fee offer this weekend so I'll give it a couple of days and then list them all there as well as that will save substantial selling fees.

Thanks for looking.

Re k-3. Thank you, Andrew for an excellent camera and an easy, pleasant transaction. The k-3 is superb condition and packed better than gear I've received from SRS!
