[SOLD] Everything must go....sadly (Worldwide)

Hi Everyone,

Sadly I am having to sell all my Pentax gear. I have loved Pentax for 25 years, but I am now shooting weddings and needed to move to a full frame camera. I can't support two systems. So now I must pay for the new!!

All of my gear has been looked after and used well of course, all has been purchased in the past 18 months. The majority was bought new and used for weddings and portraits. I am posting images of all the gear on my website and all the photos on my website were taken with these cameras and lenses. J.A.P. Arts+Photography, please go and have a look if you like.
Please let me know if you would like to see a particular subject or image or.......I will accommodate.

There are some specks of dust on the gear, I wiped them down before photographing, but there must have been static. I have never dropped anything, but there is a hairline scratch on the screen of the K7, I bought it on the way to a wedding, purchased the screen protectors, but they were not in the bag, so had to go protectorless, I scratched it on the K20d, as I carry two bodies, was so mad at myself. The scratch does not affect th imagery at all, and when you are viewing your photos, it is not really noticable.

All payments to be gift paypal if possible or you pay the extra, also postage and
insurance is not included, and I will calculate for you, from Melbourne to ....wherever you are. I am happy to provide my bank details if you prefer to transfer. If you are in Melbourne, I could meet you and you can also pay with credit card, I have an eftpos machine, but only for onsite transactions.
I have spent a small fortune as I said and now have spent a bigger fortune for a Nikon D700 and 24-70mm and flash for my work. I am having heart palpitations.

Everything has the original boxes and paper work. Some are bought less than a year ago. Only the K20D is missing the cables, just can't find them. You can upload photos with a usb card reader.

Ok, so here is the list, I will answer PM's as soon as I can.

DA* 16-50mm F2.8 AL (if} SDM, no sdm issues, gorgeous, bought on Pentax forums last year. $700.00 excellent sold without filter, but has been on all the time.

DA* 50-135mm F2.8ED {IF} SDM, no sdm issues, love this lens. Bought new and for over $1800 just over a year ago. $890.00 excellent sold without filter, but has been on all the time.

FA77m F1.8 Limited {black, made in Japan}. OH my god, I love this lens the most and don't want to let it go, but I have to. You will love it. Bought new last year. little fluff on the felt on the inside of the hood. Sold with filter

FA43mm F1.9 Limited {black, made inJapan}, bought on Penax Forums last year, lovely lovely lens. Excellent condition, little fluff on the felt on the inside of the hood, hard to get off. Sold with filter.

Lensbaby composer w double glass optic and aperture disks, I am buying a Nikon one asap, these are so much fun!!

Lensbaby Muse w single glass optic and aperture disks. Never used outside, loved my composer too much. But is fun!! Go to Lenses for SLR, Mirrorless and PL Cameras | Lensbaby Creative Effects Lenses to see more of these special artistic lenses.

Sigma 24-135mm f2.8-4.5
Sharp, great all rounder, used up until I got the 16-50 and 50-135mm. Sold without filter.

2 x Pentax AF-540PGZ FLashes, both excellent, but with a few light scratches, never had any problems, they were work horses for me!!! Batteries not included, but he pouch and paperwork is, as well as a generic brand diffuser dome,
$370.00.00 each

D-BG2 Battery Grip for K20d, K10D. Bought new, hardly used, excellent condition.

D-BG4 Battery Grip for K7 and K5, bought new this year, like new, used once. just couldn't get comfortable with the shutter release and also I use the AF button a lot.

Pentax K20D body only
Excellent condition, lovely camera, bought new in 09. Don't know actuations. At least 10,000. Never any problems. No cables included, can't find them.

Pentax K7 body only
Good condition, only because of the surface scratch on the back LCD, doesn't affect the performance at all. Lovely camera Very reliable. At least 7000 actuations.

Pentax K5, body only
This one I do want to keep, but just can't, it is worth too much. Just a beautiful camera, no stain issues that I have noticed. You can see the photos I have taken with it on my website, especially the baby photos and all the engagement sessions. I used it predominantly in the last three weddings I shot. Perfect with the 77mm for portraits..
Not sure of actuations again, but in the 5000 range.

Manual 50mm f1.4 lens, no front cap, but very clean and with a filter. Gorgeous, but I have no time for manual. Bought second hand on ebay in 09, used a handful of times.

Glanz Auto extension Tube set. I bought this for my wedding details, and obviously don't need it now. works great. bought new.

Hoya 200m close up lens, works great, but i needed flexibility , so bought the Glanz.

That's it, Any questions let me know. Haven't sold on here before, but have bought, and have a 100% rating on ebay under user id jazimax.

I will be listing this all on ebay if it doesn't sell quickly, have to pay for the Nikon.

All the photos of everything will be on my website J.A.P. Arts+Photography in a gallery for Pentax on the "view my pictures" page, go to "portraits" to find them, Password is Pentax. Just too many to post here.

Thanks and I look forward to hearing from you. Jennifer

How much are you asking for the 50mm F/1.4? When you say Manual, I guess it is a "M" version right?
