FS: Pentax K-5, lenses, flash, Blackrapid strap and Spyder calibrator


Link Posted 12/03/2014 - 20:38
The time has come - I'm moving to another system for my digital endeavours. I'll still be using Pentax for film and adapting a few lenses for the new system, but all this has to go.

- Pentax K-5 with DA 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 WR, plus spare Energizer branded battery and a third party IR remote

The body is in good condition with just a few minor scuffs on the bottom. Shutter count in EXIF was 8,073 when I checked the other day and the file number was at 12,397. Not sure why they're so different, but I'd probably believe the file number myself. The lens has hardly ever been used so is pretty much as new. All boxed and with all the original bits, caps, hoods etc.

375 + 11 RMSD

- Pentax DA-L 55-300mm f/4-5.8

This is the plastic mount version, but comes with a third party hood (a hood is not supplied as standard). Very handy lens to have around. Very good condition.

100 + 8.25 RMSD

- Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8

A truly brilliant lens, I love it - sharp as you like, versatile and pretty small and light given its speed - but since it doesn't work on film and I'd lose AF with an adapter it has to go. Boxed and works absolutely fine but does have a three or four specs of dust behind the rear element and a mark on the back edge of the outside of the filter ring (see above). Neither the dust nor mark have any effect on operation or on images.

180 + 8.25 RMSD

- Pentax DA 35mm f/2.4

Bought in January from Amazon. Boxed and hardly used, so still very much as new.

100 + 6.95 RMSD

- Metz 48 AF-1

Great flash with full P-TTL support and wireless slave function. Boxed. Has a very small scuff on the red front panel that does not affect operation.

80 + 8.25 RMSD

- Blackrapid RS-7 Curve strap plus "BRAD" under-arm strap (INCOMPLETE)

A quick-access sling-style strap. Especially useful when carrying big lenses.

NOTE: I can not find the "FastenR" - the metal eye which screws into the tripod socket - but replacements are available from Amazon for 11.99 (see here).

20 + 6.25 RMSD

- Spyder 3 Pro monitor calibrator

30 + 6.95 RMSD

Born again biker with lots of Pentax bits. Every day I wake up is a good day. I'm so old I don't even buy green bananas.

I've had some interest in the 18-55 again, but I've decided not to split the K-5 kit unless I can sell both the body and the lens. So, along with a drop in the asking price, that is either:

Pentax K-5 kit with DA 18-55 WR, spare battery and IR remote 350


Pentax K-5 body only with spare battery and IR remote 300

To recap what else is available, plus some price cuts:

Pentax DA-L 55-300mm f/4-5.8 with hood 90

Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8 160

Pentax DA 35mm f/2.4 90

Metz 48 AF-1 70

Postage to be added (RMSD rates in the original post). Payments by bank transfer or Paypal gift (buyer pays fees).
