SOLD: K5 w/ EE-s Screen, Zeiss 85mm/1.4 Planar

Selling off my Pentax gear.

I'll post pics a bit later, just getting the listing out there.

Pentax K5 with EE-s focusing screen and O-ME53 viewfinder magnifier. $950 SOLD

Camera is in overall excellent condition, and is set up with what I would consider the perfect setup for both manual and autofocus: the O-ME53 and a custom cut Canon EE-s focusing screen (there is a lengthy thread about it). Includes all original accessories, manuals, and box.

Not sure how to check, but I'd guess the shutter has around 10k actuations.

[Pentax 31mm f/1.8 LTD - $850 SOLD

I'm the original owner of this lens, purchased from B&H. The lens is optically magnificent and produces stunning results. Lens cap itself has been dropped and has marks. Includes box and lens pouch.


Pentax [43mm f/1.9 LTD - $525 SOLD

Lens is in perfect condition and is extremely sharp wide open. An excellent copy. Includes box and pouch.


Zeiss 85mm f/1.4 - $900 SOLD

This is hands down the best lens I have ever used. The quality of bokeh it produces is outstanding. The lens is in perfect shape and includes the box and metal lens hood.

Sigma 17-70mm f/2.8-4.5 - $220 SOLD

A surprisingly stellar lens, much better than the 18-55 kit lens. An extremely versatile lens due to the combination of range, sharpness, and close-focus ability. Comes with lens hood and box.


Pentax A 50mm f/1.7 - $50 SOLD

Very sharp, well built, and small. This one comes with a rear cap only, though the glass is in great shape. I'll be sure to package it to protect the front element.


Shipping

I'll go flat $7.50 shipped to the CONUS.

I'll ship anywhere in the world at cost to the buyer.


I apologize for the quality of the pictures. Selling my camera has left me without appropriate equipment to take pictures!

And a couple taken at 1.4 with the Zeiss

There is only one reason I guess: full-frame!

Indeed. I have decided to move to Full Frame and am headed over to a D700.

Honestly, Pentax has been fantastic as a crop camera.[COLOR="Silver"]

Pictures of the K5 and Zeiss are now up.
