I thought the same thing haha, hopefully we are looking for different lenses...
Let's not kid ourselves, we are both looking mostly at any film era lens on a bargain - who isn't. On a side note, I couldn't believe that a black MX and a black spotmatic were listed minutes from each other last night. I have been looking at a black mx for a better part of a year now and they don't come up often...! Too bad the seller wants so much for it. And the black spottie... Well, its gorgeous isn't it!

There is something a lot more troubling to me than the idea that someone might be selling a stolen 645z (which I don't believe anyway), and it's that there is someone else scouting Kijiji in "my" territory! I don't like competition there :P .
Don't worry, I'm probably not fast enough for you. Probably...

Well, I guess at least some knowledge has emerged from the thread!

The simplest explanation is the K-1 - which is a new model, barely starting to be available. Usually, the simplest explanation is correct (as it implies fewer assumptions).

Since you all decided to talk about me and what I posted online, I thought it would only be fair if I spoke for myself.

I purchased the Pentax 645Z in Sept 2014. Shortly after that I was approached by Pentax Marketing team and was offered to be a Sponsored Ambassador. I accepted under the condition that I would get gear, as thats how sponsorships work. Now because I had already purchased the 645Z, legally they could not refund me. So it took a while, but they have finally sent me a replacement 645Z which allowed me to sell my old one. They are also sending me a K1, which will be my backup body and also a good camera when i don't need the 51.4 Medium Format monster.

So nothing has been stolen, there is no secret camera they are sending me. I'm simply a brand Ambassador for them, like many others I have spoken to around the world. Also, the camera was sold on ebay which is why that post was removed.

Hope this clears every up. Next time just ask.

Happy shooting!
