K-7, K2000, DA*300, DA*16-50, DA 70 ltd, DA 14, K28 and A24

Been a while since I have been online here, but again some of the oldtimers wil know me and my rating is fairly decent i think.
The explanation is longwinded, but time has come to clean out after a fter an 18 month evaluation period of 2 vs. 3 format setups.
Will be hanging on to a couple of K-5s and my workhorse lenses, alongside my other systems.



The following is up for sale:

K-7: - SOLD!
25K clicks on it, some minor cosmetic scratches on the baseplate, but otherwise clean and very well maintained. It has been a real workhorse and was among other things the one I used in North Eastern Greenland, so this body has been arctic certified.
Charger (let me know if you prefer a european or US cable), viewfinder cover and an extra battery is included
Asking price: 400 USD

K2000: - SOLD!
a couple of thousand clicks on it, served as a fun cam for us, before the K-7 was announced
Generally in very good shape, I have checked and while you may be able to find a tiny scrach on the baseplate somewhere I did not notise any. i have actualyl shot a few of my favourite travel images with this one.
Asking Price 250 USD

DA* 300 mm f4: - SOLD!
A gorgeous lens, the polar bear and arctic fox images in my galleries were shot with it.
Save for some cosmetic scratches on the flanges where the lenshood attaches, then it is in perfect shape, glass is clean and dust/fungus free.
Original soft pouhc included
Asking Price: 850 USD

DA* 16-50 mm f2.8: - SOLD!
This lens is one that people seems to have a love/hate relationship with it.
For a zoom, I have found it excellent in pretty much all respects, fast focusing, sharp images and well sealed.
I was worried about the double cam construction at first, but it really is a rather sturdy lens.
I have not seen any notisable marks on the exterior and the glass is dust and fungus free.
It has delivered a steady rate of high quality images. for me. I have several large prints from it and so has quite a few customers.
Original soft pouch included.
Asking price: 550 USD

DA 70 mm f2.4 limited: - SOLD!
A gorgeous lens in so many ways, very even performance across the frame, compact and fast focusing.
Another lens that has served me very well.
You can probably find a mark or two on the exterior, but it really is in very good shape.Optically it is celan, dust and fungus free.
Original leather soft pouch included.
Asking price: 400 USD

DA 14 mm f2.8: - SOLD!
The smalles 14/2.8 from any manufacturer and a lens I really, really like too.
There is a lot of good and bad to be said, and it is constantly compared to teh DA15ltd.
But the one stop faster max aperture and closer focus really is quite amazing IMO, Had I not been shooting larger formats in addition to APS-C this lens would have stayed with me.
Optically it is clean, dust and fungus free, just as I have not notised any marks on the exterior of the lens. The original soft ouch is included
Asking Price: 400 USD

K 28mm f3.5: - SOLD!
An excellent performing manual focus 28mm, It will ship including the original pouch and the original square pentax lens hood.
Overall in excelelnt condition, glass is dust and fongus free and the exterior has no markings I have notised.
Sharp when stopped down a touch and compact for the focal length, good hiking and landscape lens I think.
Asking price: 130 USD

A 24 mm f2.8: - SOLD!
Another wonderful performer, exterior in excellent condition and save for a tiny fault in the coating on the front element, the optics are clean, dust and fungus free. The small mark on the front element coating has no effect on image quality though and this tiny 24mm is a very solid performer. It is a good IR lens too actually.
It will come with a generic rear cap and a tamron branded front cap, that is a lot more comfortable to use than the original lens cap, should have it somewhere if you want it though.
Asking Price: 100 USD

Shipping and paypal fees included in case of larger kits.

The prices listed above are if sold individually, so a fully kit buyer or near full kit buyer will be preferred and can expect a discount on the prices, as I will save on shipping, I will register indivudual bids though and get back tou you, should a full kit buyer or near full kit buyer not be found within resonable time.

Again i ship worldwide and will on request, mark the shipment as a gift and I can ship the stuff from an EU address so EU buyers should not run into TAX/VAT/import issues, but that kind of peculiarities is in general really out of my hands.

Detailed images to follow, my internet connection decided to break down last night, so will upload ned images as soon as the telcom company have figured it out. for now these two overall images will have to do.
large images will hopefully be up here by tonight (US time):

I will attempt answering questions in this thread, but bids should be via PM.

Well Daniel, we have at least one. I have not been very active here since posting about my sledding trips last april, but I used to be an active member a year or two ago.

Been living more than six years in this arctic paradis and i am just slowly getting to know its vast regions and cultural differencies. A truly amazing place.
