Item Description
I sure don't want this to sell - on the other hand, medical bills really suck and came in a bunch this last two months.

Pentax gear for sale:
$195 - Pentax K-5 silver Special #2 + silver Sigmas: 28-80 f/3.5-5.6 1:2 macro & 100-300 DL f/4.5-6.7
$60 - DA∙L 18-50re
$45 - Pentax DA∙L 50-200WR

The K-5 is a fairly recent acquisition and has under 17k clicks. It is not the first-issue silver (modified grip and black/silver SR logo) so it probably is the later one that came with the silver DA40xs. I believe the shutter sound is quieter than the original K-5 but I have no proof of that; it's definitely well damped on this copy. I've experienced zero issues with this camera. I do see a small flaw in the top LCD screen, whether it came that way or took a shock I do not know; it affects nothing and cannot be felt on the top so WR should not be affected. Camera comes with two batteries, original and USB charger, transfer cable and original neck strap. I also have a Pentax CD with silkypix 3.0LE, not sure if that was a K-5 standard but it will go along.

The two Sigma lenses are old models but serve very well, and the finish is a close match to the K-5. Both are in excellent condition with no issues, mechanical cosmetic or optical. The 1:2 closeups at 80mm are handy and the 100-300 focuses much faster than the non-PLM 55-300 copies I have owned. Both have lens caps and I have a 55mm polarizer I can add to the mix.

The 18-50re is a happy surprise, I feel it is a better lens overall than the 18-55wr copies that I've used. Comes with caps but no hood. Sized like a thicker Limited lens, it really makes for a compact team! I'd prefer to sell with the camera right now so not priced to move on its own. We'll see how that plan holds up..

The 50-200 is a typical copy in excellent condition, caps but no hood.

Last but not least -
$10 PentaxForums original K-1 shirt - size Meduim (2016 design 5).
Given the choice I'd rather have a K-1 and no shirt than the reverse, so it should go to an actual K-1 user. I've worn and washed it perhaps a half dozen times so it looks new to me.
