K10D,Tamron 70-200 f2.8, DA 55-300, Sigma 17-70, Pentax SMC-F 50 1.7

It's time to let some of the items go. I am such a pack rat and these items deserve a home where they are used. These are items I either do not use anymore or the focal lengths overlap some more recent purchases.

Please send me a PM if interested in any of the items or have any questions.

Prices are negotiable but I am not desperate to sell any of these so take that into consideration (ie: don't low ball me). I will also consider discounts if you purchase multiple items. I will ship worldwide however buyers assumes all shipping / insurance costs. The items are coming from Alberta, Canada , postal code T8A 5P3.

All prices are in Canadian dollars. You can pay via Pay Pal (I will eat the 3% fee prices are as is) , EFT,for other options please PM me.I will use Canada Post or if buyer has a preferred method I will also consider that.

If I have the original box (I do for most) I will include that. The Tamrom 70-200 does come with a pouch as well.

There is a link to a Flickr set under each item with a picture of the item and if it is a lens it will have some recent photo's taken.

Pending $250 - K10D with focus screen (will also include the original screen). I bought this used I think it's a regular Kats Eye screen. The shutter count is approximately 17,200+. Comes with Pentax Strap, one genuine Pentax Battery.
Pentax-Sale-K10D - a set on Flickr - Will now include another genuine Pentax Battery and a 8gb SD card.

Keeping it, after a recent weekend outing - sorry for the inconvenience Sigma 17-70. I bought this when my DA* 16-50 went in for repairs. I barley used it,however there are no issues.

[COLOR="Red"]SOLD c Pentax SMC F 50 1.7 . One of the fist lens I ever owned because I read early everyone needs a fast 50. well I don't need a fast 50 and it's just collecting dust. This also includes a tiffen sky filter shown in the pictures.

SOLD DA 55-300 I recently purchased a DA* 60-250 and I no longer need this someone shroud enjoy it.

SOLD Tamron 70-200 f2.8. This is a stellar lens and tack sharp. In the interest full disclosure I bought this off jsherman999 in Mar 2009 and have never had an issue with this lens. Here is how listing looked.
Pentax-Sale-Tamron-70-200 - a set on Flickr

This was bought new this past summer - and was dropped briefly into a lake in September.
It still performed at new levels, AF wasn't affected and is in fact spot-on. It was still just as razor sharp, but showed some flaring wide-open when shot into a light source.
It was professionally cleaned by Eric (Eric's Camera Service ) in November. He did a great job, but wasn't able to clean the elements completely on one sub-assembly, so some slight water marks are still visible on some internal elements - however, I don't see the effects in the images. It's probably the equivalent of dust - there, but has no effect on IQ.
I'm selling because I recently got a Sigma 100-400 f/4, and don't need both lenses.
These go for $640 from B&H new, and there is always the possibility of getting a FF/BF copy - this one is spot-on, and is as sharp as the $1900 Nikon 70-200 f/2.8 VR
Comes with original caps, pouch, box, papers. Here's your opportunity to grab a pro-caliber long fast zoom for an affordable price.


If you are completley unsatisifed with the item for whatever reason I will accept a return up to 7 days after you received it. You would be responsible for shipping and insurance however.

All pm's replied to - listing has been updated[COLOR="Silver"]

---------- Post added 04-25-2012 at 02:37 PM ----------

Listing updated looks like the K10D may be the only item left. Will make for a great second body for someone or an awesome fist camera . I hope she can find a new home as she is just sitting on the shelf here

Thread updated to make K10D more attractive - decided to keep the Sigma 17-70 after a weekend outing with it (my wife likes it).

Listing updated last item K10D is pending I should have put this in the original add :

K10D
Original Pentax Box
Original K10D Manual and Software
USB Cable
VGA Cable
What I believe to be a Katz Eye Focus Screen (installed) and what I believe to be the original screen
2 geniune Pentax Batteries (maybe half life left)
Genuine Pentax Battery Charge
Front Cap
(Missing the little plastic piece that covers where the flash goes)
8GB SD card

When I look through the view finder you can see what look like little hairs in a few places. This has no effect on the pictures , it does not show up at all.
If you take a picture of the sky @ F22 you can see a couple of dust specs - does not show up on regular pictures (unless shooting the sky @ f22) - Rocker Blower of sensor cleaning should eliminate this.

As to what type of focus screen it has , It appears to have Crosshair Grid Lines as well as well as 8x10 Crop Guides. You can get a visual here Custom Grid Lines and Crop Guides - KatzEye Optics
