[SOLD] FS: Mint *istD+grip, 540 flash, Voigtlander and Pentax lenses

I have for sale most of my Pentax gear. I primarily use Olympus, but have always liked Pentax, and decided to jump in recently. However, my appreciation for camera gear is much larger than my wallet, and more importantly, my wife’s tolerance. I need to stick to one system. I have only posted a couple of times in this forum, but I have bought and sold some Olympus gear on fourthirdsphoto.com under the same username as here—”sven.” You can check my iTrader rating and comments there if you like (5 transactions, 100% positive). Smoke-free house FWIW.

PayPal preferred, as is sales to US only. Shipping $10 per box, PayPal fees included.

Items below were all bought new in October (2007), and they all include original boxes, manuals, batteries, chargers, caps, cords, etc., and I am the original owner. All items have led a very pampered life and are in mint condition.

*istD $350 [SOLD]
Less than 300 shutter actuations, and indistinguishable from new. I put an LCD protector on it right away. I also put a dab of Elmers white glue in the pin hole on the flash shoe to prevent the “flash stuck to camera” problem (also see flash description below). An easy fix that is just as easily reversible if so desired. I consider it an improvement. A very capable little camera that I have grown to like very much.

*istD grip $100 [SOLD]
Actually I bought this used from the original owner, but everything else applies. Lightly used, looks new.

AF-540 FGZ Flash $275 [SALE PENDING]
Barely used—only a handful of actuations. I put a little Elmers white glue in the pin hole to keep the pin up to prevent the potential “flash stuck to camera” problem. I read several posts about this problem on the forums so I took preventative action. A simple fix that is easily reversible if desired. In my opinion it is an improvement that will save you from a big problem.

FA 50/1.4 $150 [SOLD]

DA 18-55/3.5-5.6 $50

Voigtlander SL lenses—beautiful manual focus lenses that have a great reputation on this and other forums, and are a joy to use. Precise, long-throw focusing, and very sharp. All PKA mounts, and bought new from Stephen Gandy at cameraquest.com in October. If you are interested in these lenses, this is a great deal—as new at a considerable savings. The 90 is not even available anymore. These are what I am most reluctant to part with. All have only been mounted a couple of times, and have been kept in their original packaging.

125/2.5 APO Lanthar Macro $650 [SOLD]
A legendary lens, highly desired and raved about by many. Highly sought after in Nikon and Canon mounts as well. Includes metal hood.

180/4 APO Lanthar $375 [SOLD]
Nice small size, includes the $69(!) metal hood that had to be bought separately.

90/4 APO Lanthar $275 [SOLD]
Nice small size, includes the $69 metal hood that had to be bought separately.

*Below items were purchased used, I believe from original owners.*

DA 50-200/4-5.6 $125 [SALE PENDING]
No box, but in mint condition. Both caps and protective filter included.

Tamron 70-300/4-5.6 AF-LD $50 [SALE PENDING]
Not mint, but in fine shape. No scratches, etc on lens. No hood, and non-OEM lens cap. A great value.


For those who want to combine, pm me and I’ll quote you.

Thank you, and let me know if you have any questions!
Steve

I don't believe the *istD grip fits the DS, and this grip is sold. Sorry!

pm sent on the 180 and the 125 Voights. Thanks for letting me know they were still available :-) . Ill be sure to post some pictures for you. As luck would have it I almost bought the FA 100 macro but figured for the price these would be better investments.
