K-5, 540fgz !!price drop!!

My dear Pentaxians,

The sad day has come that I can no longer shoot with Pentax. Their cameras are wonderful products, but they just don't fit my needs any longer. I'm moving over to Nikon. Yes, feel free to boo and hiss, but I couldn't wait for a FF much longer and I needed an AF system that was reliable in low light. I am selling all my Pentax gear, which has been handled with care, and has given me so much pleasure. If anyone is so bold, $2800 takes the lot. If you want to separate the pieces, prices are listed below with some discounts for groups of products there as well.

If you'd like additional images of any item, please feel free to ask.

If there are items that you would like but think my prices are unfair, please make me a reasonable offer.

All prices include shipping in the continental US. If you'd like to ship elsewhere, I'll consider it, but can't guarantee that I'll do it. I accept paypal, and I will leave the fees to your discretion. I will gladly take a gift payment if you see fit.

Thank you for looking!

Sad to see that happens, but I think you have made a good choice for chosing Nikon for FF. Hopefully will see you back here when the time(if ever,) that Pentax introduces a FF camera.

I was thrilled with the images I was getting.... when I was getting them. My problem eventually turned to AF speed, which turned out to be too slow in low light for me. As long as I was moving, there was no question that I was going to upgrade to FF. I do hope Pentax comes back better and stronger under Ricoh leadership, and gives digital shooters the ability to fully unleash some of that FA* glass.

Just a suggestion: update your thread title to more specifically reflect what you are selling.
