Sadly, I must sell some of my gear because my bills refuse to pay themselves!

Pentax K-5 II in excellent condition. Bought new from Warehouse Express in September 2012. Approximately 2900 shutter actuations. In nearly-new condition, the only area that shows any wear is the hotshoe. Complete with box, and all originally included accessories. Will also throw in a spare charger and two (generic) batteries.

Asking 425 + delivery.

Sigma 70mm f/2.8 also in excellent condition. Glass is perfect with only a nigh-invisible scuff on the body. Box, hood, and pouch included.

Asking 230 + delivery.

Pentax 17-70mm f/4 essentially as purchased from Luftwalk here. "Comes with everything included when purchasing new. It shows signs of being used (cosmetically - marks on the body), but optically it's great. It was always protected with an UV filter that is included in the sale. Never had any SDM problems. There is a small problem with it though. It sometimes reports the wrong focal length in Exif (you take a pic at 30mm, but it will report 17mm for instance)."

Priced as purchased: 150 shipped.

I also have a generic grip for the K-5, should anyone be interested. Hardly used, allows use of AA batteries with K-7,K-5,K-5 II(S). 20 shipped.

Pictures to follow when I get some time and sunlight.

Photos for Pentax 17-70mm f/4

I've tried to show any and all marks I could find. I apologise for the medocrity of the images. HTC makes a fine phone, but only an OK camera

Generic grip and Pentax 17-70mm now sold! Photos of the Sigma 70mm and K-5 II will be uploaded tomorrow.

I'll be including whatever bits and pieces I come across for the K-5 II, for instance I've found a 7-Day Shop wireless remote that I'll throw in for free.

If there's anyone who is just starting out I can include a memory card and standard 18-55mm for a few pounds extra as well, should that interest anyone.

Hi there, I'm looking to upgrade from a k20 to a k5. Tried to pm but as I am new here I can't. Send me a pm if you are willing to post to Ireland.

PM sent.. I don't see any issues with sending to Ireland, or anywhere else in the EU, as long as the buyer pays for the most secure shipping methods.

Unless anyone can give me reasons not to?

Just getting the pictures together now... Forgot to mention: payments can be bank transfer, cheque (buyer waits for cheque to clear), or paypal (buyer pays the fees).

Sigma 70mm f/2.8 EX DG Macro

Again, I've tried to photograph any imperfections I could find but, if anyone wants more information or photos, please let me know - I'll be happy to oblige!

As a side note, both the grip and 17-70mm are on their way to their new owners!
