Item Description
Hello, I'm selling my entire Pentax kit. Everything is in great condition - mint in some cases. No item (camera/lens) has even been dropped or repaired except for my K3 which I sent to Johnsons Photopia UK for calibration and sensor cleaning in May 2018 and it hasn't been used since.


Asking price for everything together:
$3,000

Asking price for each gear:
$350 - K3 with battery grip, battery charger and two OEM straps
$1100 - Pentax k1 with battery grip, battery charger, Godox trigger, and OEM strap
$1150 - 70 - 200mm f2.8
$700 - 24 - 70mm f2.8
$200 - 18 - 135
$150 - 50mm f1.4
$150 - Pentax AF360FGZ II Flash


Here's a breakdown of the condition of each item:

K1
15,619 actuations
Looks like new without a scratch
Purchased in December 2017 in Dubai.

K3
22,735 actuations
Looks like new too
Purchased off B&H sometime in 2016 or 2015 (I'm not sure)

AF360FGZ II On-camera flash
Looks like new too.
Never dropped.
No scratches.

70 - 200 f2.8
Mint condition
Purchased 25th November 2018
Rarely used, no scratch, mint condition.
Pouch and everything else in tact.

24-70 f2.8
Very good condition except for the focus ring. It works perfectly but doesn't look at tight around the barrel as a new one would look. Slight surface scratch on the lens but barely noticeable as it's ever so light.

18-135
Pretty much mint even though I bought it with my K3 years ago. I never use it so you might notice from the picture that the zoom ring looks a bit dusty.

50mm F1.4 SMC
Purchased this in March 201 along with an original Pentax 49mm square lens hood (costs around $44 USD on B&H today)
Perfect condition
No scratches

Battery chargers
An original Pentax charger and an extra one by Wasabi Power

Batteries
Two original Pentax batteries
Lasts forever just like when I bought them.

Camera grip
Two grips with two housing for each camera depending on which kind of battery you would like to use. (big batteries or AA)

Straps
There are four straps.
Three original Pentax straps (one never used and still in waterproof bag) and one Peak Design strap with extra pins.


Extra gift
I've added a Godox X Prop as a free gift one of the buyers. It's barely a month old and I've only used it for one shoot (when my son turned one month old last week)

About me:
I'm a photographer and software engineer. As a software engineer I work for these guys (Praekelt.org). It's an international company which builds software solutions for partners like USAID, UNICEF and GATES foundation - they have offices in USA, South Africa and UK.

Why this information
These items would be coming from Nigeria and yes I know the world thinks we are all scammers. So if you like to verify me first and ease your worries you could give them a call or send them an email about me. I'm pretty sure that if I scam you I would lose my job .

Payment

World Remit:
You can transfer money safely and securely through WorldRemit (https://www.worldremit.com/) and I should get it between 5 - 30 mins. You only need my account number. It's that simple.

Paypal
Paypal payment accepted.

Other alternatives
If you make a shipping cost deposit of $100 I will ship the item to a receiver in your city (family, friend) so you can give them cash and collect it.
Note that it only costs me +-$50 to send but I would need you to cover the return cost in case you change your mind.

However, this system may not apply to everyone as I donít have relatives in every city of the world. In such cases, if you are willing to trust me and pay in full Iím happy to send the single item to you free of any shipping costs through Fedex (4-7 working days shipping)

I might be able to ship the items to you in your city before you make full payment and in some cases you could also get free shipping.

Check updated payment process in post.

This is a rock-start setup for a novice like me. I have the K1, but I only wish I could now afford both the 24-70 and the 70-200! Mind if I ask why you've decided to part with all of this awesome gear?

Hi @reality_check,

Thanks for leaving a message.

So why I'm selling?
Under ideal conditions I wouldn't never put this gear up for sale because it is incredible - especially when you pair the K-1 with the 70-200. You'd be hard-pressed to find a better combo.
The thing is that conditions are not ideal. Recently my needs have moved drastically from photography to videography and in as much as I would like to keep this gear and get another more video-centric camera it isn't realistic because of the funds needed.
I'm married now with a child so gone are the days where I would just dip my hands in my wallet and go get whatever gear I liked
I work full-time as a software engineer but the only cash that goes into camera gears for now is profit from my photography side business and I haven't done much at least this year because my job has kept me really busy.
Rumor has it that a new k3 replacement with 4k video features is due to be out soon. If that's announced in April as I've heard then I might have to retract this sale.

Hi @Emvaldez2277

Thanks for your message.
Not necessarily. It does make more financial sense to sell the gear individually but it's also less stressful to sell all at once.
The only issue with an outright sale is that at 9kg shipping costs can be pretty high. I recently received an offer from a really nice guy here for everything but when I visited UPS yesterday I realized that it would cost around 315 USD for shipping to Canada where he is.
Nevertheless, if anyone else is interested in buying all at once I'm happy to subsidize shipping costs. We can discuss and reach a common ground.
