[SOLD] Pentax AF 540 FGZ Flash (US/CAN)Free shipping

The door to the battery housing is a little tricky to close which is normal for this flash but otherwise works great. It's served me well and had light to moderate use (maybe 100 shots in total taken with the unit on a K20D). Battery compartment is clean, I never let batteries sit in the flash when not in use. Well cared for unit.

Personal reference, I'll vouch for Robert that you can buy from him in complete confidence.

I've known Robert for a couple of years and bought from him. He doesn't have any feedback here but I suggested he list on PF and give everyone a first crack at his stuff before it goes on Ebay.

Thanks Peter for the confidence boost, and for sticking up for your friend...

Robert, is there a reason you are selling all (or a lot) of your Pentax gear? I'm not trying to be nosy or anything, just hope you're not jumping ship!

Well, Ubuntu, I am sorry to say yes. I have gone over to the dark side. Primarily because I am doing a lot more high school sports shooting these days. For a while I was using a two systems but the expense was too much. I will always be a Pentax supporter. My daughter is still shooting Pentax.

I'm the "friend" Bob bought the flash from. I used it sparingly (as I preferred natural light and using my FA 35 and FA 50/1.4) from around the Summer of 2007 until I sold it to Bob around February of 2008.

I can DEFINITELY vouch for Bob as well. I know he takes good care of his equipment. (and I just sold him my 100-400L )

Good luck with the sale!
