Two years of glorious detail and amazing dynamic range has got to come to an end
My ex needs to buy a house of her own, so I have to find a deposit on a new place, which means selling everything except my brace of trusty K5IIs's.
Pristine 645z body with low 10,000 shutter count.

The lenses are:-
SMC FA645 150mm f2.8 - Dreamy portraits.
SMC FA645 120mm f4 macro - Exquisitely sharp, just amazing.
SMC DFA 645 55mm f2.8 - my go-to lens for weddings and events.
SMC A 645 35mm f3.5 - wide(ish), very sharp wide open; fab for astro.
SMC FA645 45mm f2.8 - The old kit lens, adequate performance.
Set of auto extention tubes.

645N film body. If you haven't tried one of these you are in for a treat! Auto everything, All the advantages of medium format, but you have to wait for the processing of course. Slap in some Velvia 50 slide film and enjoy exquisite landscapes. An ergonomic gem - you can hang this lovely body on the end of your fingers all day, no problem.

Just testing the water at this point, but expect similar prices to ebay.

Here is the web gallery for the 645N and 45mm.
This camera will come with Pentax' dedicated flash- the FA-500 ftz, and 25 rolls of film (out of date, but kept in freezer), so It's a perfect kit to get started.
The function dial has come loose, cosmetic and easily fixed. I leave it on AV all the time anyway.

DIgital stuff still available. Kinda hoping no one buys it, then I'll have to keep it and find some other way to raise the cash
But just to satisfy the boss - bump!

how much for the z?

Sorry for the delay, been away.
Various ways to purchase this.
Looking for round £4800 for the body. All the beautiful, high-end packaging is pristine and it's a real treat opening it all. Would make an amazing Christmas present
Bundles available for the whole lot, or any combination.
Forgot to mention I have the SMC Pentax-A* 645 300mm f/4 ED IF - Exceptionally sharp telephoto lens.

Managed to hang on to the beautiful Zed for a bit.
But I've got a 'proper' job now, so it's up for grabs again!
The entire kit is about to go to a dealer and he is suggesting £4,500 for everything,
So if you want it at that price shout now!
It's amazing! My favourite camera to use and to just hold. Much nicer than the K1 to carry around surprisingly. I will be really sad to see it go. But go it must.
The picture quality is just sublime. I can't even begin to describe luscious images or the feeling of seeing an enourmous print of a tiny spider or a beautiful portrait and walking right up to it with no loss of detail.
Some example shots:

Outstanding images here and on your website, do you really need to sell? What do you mean, a proper job?!

Thanks Rob,
I still do a bit of photography commercially, but I'm a dispatch manager now. So I don't need three models (with different lenses).
I managed to make a reasonable living from photography and the 645 really stood out from the snappers and gave the client confidence. But it was getting a bit sketchy with summer work very scarce, plus I'm no businessman, so I decided to go for an actual wage

Well done, an income allows you to indulge your interests in spare time without worrying about the commercial aspects. That said, I would suggest keeping some professional equipment if you can as itís always something to fall back on if the worst happens.

Are the lenses available separately (except the 45mm obviously) please?

If so, what would you be looking for on the 35mm?

Is the 'z' available on its own still? I don't require any of those lenses!

I wasn't planning to split the sale.
But I guess I could do.

Mark, In case you split the sale, what would be your price for the 120mm macro ?
By chance would you have a K to 645 converter ?
