Found something online and was wondering if this was a good deal:

Pentax K-r (1500 actuations)

Tamron AF28-80 F/3.5-5.6 ASP
Tamron AF70-300 F/4-5.6 Di LD Macro 1:2
Sigma AF18-200 F/3.5-6.3 DC SLD
Pentax SMC DA-L 18-55 F/3.5-5.6
Focal MC 28mm F/2.8
Yashinon DS-M 50mm F/1.7
Pentax AF-360FGZ

List Price: $680

Personally I am a beginner so I'm not 100% sure what all these lenses do, but I figure if I'm going to learn and it's a good deal it should be worth it. Otherwise I guess I can part out the lenses afterwards.

Thanks! (Sorry if this is considered double posting but I figured it couldn't hurt since my post was already up top anyways)

That's an excellent price for all of those ... almost to good to be true !! Make sure it is legit ... not a scam !
Like Hangman pointed out, the flash itself is around $150 already !!

Amazon has had the K-r bundled with the 18-55 and 55-300 lenses going for as little as $660 brand new.

This has happened multiple times throughout the past 4 months. I have no doubt in the world that it will happen again.

+1 to $660 on Amazon (18-55,55-300 kit). It's what finally tipped me to getting a K-r...love it!

I got mine online about a month ago and the retailer raised the price about $100 which made it above $700. I got the normal lens and the 50-200mm together. I also have since the price drop with other online retailers. The lowest I saw maybe last week was around $530-560.

Well that's good to hear, now waiting to hear back from the seller and see if he's willing to ship it to me.
Yes, that's a super deal if it's legitimate. Is this a cross-border transaction?

Nope, it's a craigslist posting that's out of state, but havn't had any replies in the past 3 days so I might just pass on it. If anyone else wants to try and contact the seller, it's listed in Peoria, IL. (Link: http://peoria.craigslist.org/pho/2659624770.html)

my experience with trying to buy out of state on Craigslist is that the seller always only wants to do a local sale.

If I was a seller, I'd be cautious too. & as a buyer, you can get scammed too. Craigslist is full of scammers, just have to be careful out there.

but that ad looks ok to me.

Keep at him. If legit, that bundle is a steal at that price. I'd be willing to drive quite a few hours for it, if I needed that kind of kit. IDK what state you're in, so it may not be possible, but if it is then by all means pursue it.

Does not seem like a bad deal as long as it does not have a ton of shutter clicks
