[SOLD] K-7 Kit WR kit, Kx White kit, FA50mm 1.4, Voigtlander Nokton, K7/5 Grip

Well, it's time. I have amassed a good sized collection of Nikon glass to go with my F90. Unfortunately, it makes more sense to use this glass on digital as well, and move away from Pentax.

Pricing is Paypal net to me, and does not include shipping. I encourage any questions on these items. I feel the pricing is fair, as the items are hardly used, and I am looking to mitigate any downtime between cameras. I will post photos this weekend, but assure you the items are as described.

Pentax K-7 18-55WR kit - $750 SOLD
<4500 shutter activations. Probably closer to 4000 PhotoMe shows 4636 actuations. I bought this used from someone who stated they'd never used it. I honestly believe that based on the condition. There are no scratches or issues (cosmetically or performance based) on this camera. I have all accessories as well as the Magic Lantern guide. I have the original Pentax battery, as well as two additional high-capacity generic batteries. Box is not included.

Pentax K-x 18-55 kit - White - $400 - SOLD
<4000 shutter activations. PhotoMe shows 3224 actuations. I bought this new in July. For the size/performance, I honestly wish I could keep it. With the FA 50 and kit lens, it's a hell of a performer. Includes all accessories and box. No scratches or performance issues.

FA 50 1.4 - $280 Price Reduced to $265 - SOLD

I bought this used from a member here. No box included. I've had nothing but stellar results from this lens. I truly hope there is a similar Nikon out there, because it was a phenominal fast 50.

Voigtlander Nokton 58mm 1.4II - $375 SOLD

Awesome manual focus lens. Bought it NIB from someone who'd never used it and was moving to Canon. I have the box, as well as the optional metal hood ($45) in box. I've never had an issue metering with this lens, and it's rendering and bokeh are amazing!

K7/5 Generic Grip - $65 Price reduced - $40

I think the only downfall to not being the genuine Pentax is lack of WR. The functionality and construction seems great. Comes with two high-capacity, generic batteries.

Apparently the front e-dial does not work on the K-5. I'm not sure if this would be an issue on the K-7. Also, I was informed the original grip came with a AA adapter insert, which I had never received. Item is being returned to me, and funds have been refunded. Price has been reduced to reflect the item


I will continue to post here, as I love the community, and the modesty of the great talent here. I hope to continue to not only see Pentax grow as a company, but all of you grow as photographers. I look forward to sharing some of my future work. Hopefully, down the road, I will be able to put aside enough money to make a travel kit with some Pentax gear. For now, I have to invest in what I already have.

I have a lot going on right now, and will try to be timely in returning inquiries. If I don't get back to you right away, I apologize. I will do my best.

It's always sad to see members go... in the end a camera and all it's accompanying gear are just tools for photography. Some may have feelings for their tools, some may not. Best of luck to you!

I feel the same way. However, the tools I have in Pentax are far more limiting than the tools I have for Nikon. If money were no object, I would keep both. But it always is. I need to be as flexible with my light intake and field of view as I do live music quite a bit.

I have no plans in leaving the forum, though. I'll continue to post here and share images.

Alright, well as long as you don't leave and you give us vital feedback of the other system. If possible, you could give us insider information as well :-D

Still available.

I will update the thread as items are sold.


No, I'm defintely not leaving. I really like this board. I've been quite busy as of late, so I haven't had much time to post, but I have no plans of going anywhere. This is the only brand specific board that's worth it's salt that I've found.

Kx sale pending payment.

K7 pms replied, no payment received, yet. I've had interest in body only. I would prefer to sell as a kit; however, am will to work with individuals who would like lens and body separate.

I'll definitely give some insight on the Nikon system once I get everything together and start shooting with it.
