Low count K-5 + WR kit and RRS-L bracket

Time to let the very last bits of my pentax APS-C kit go. hard decision to make, but it is none the less the one that makes the most sense.
The story is for another day and another time.
Which means that i have the following up for sale is:
  • My low shuttercount K-5, two additional original batteries and WR-kit lens - USD 770 (shipping included) - Sold
  • Really Right Stuff L-bracket for K5/K7 - USD 100 (shipping included) - Sold

  • my pristine condition FA*24 mm - USD 600 + Shipping - Sold
  • my general workhorse MIJ FA43 mm limited - USD 500 + shipping - Sold
  • my portrait workhorse FA77 mm limited - USD 600 + shipping - Sold
  • My Da 10-17 Fisheye zoom - USD 400 + Shipping - Sold
In general I will prefer Kit buyers, thus even though you are first to PM me, I will give priority to someone buying multiple items.

Overall image below:

The sharp eye will notice my DA21 in the image and find it missing in the list.
Could not make myself sell it, I have other plans for this lens, as it has a very unique history to me, more to follow on that elsewhere.
But lets get to some of the details on each of the items. A link to a gallery with detailed images of the lenses is towards the very end of this post.

Pentax K-5 and WR kit lens, with RRS L-bracket and two additional batteries:
Body is in great shape and with just belwo 5000 clicks on it, has served as second body and excellent shape cosmetically and mecanically.
Same goes for the kit lens, which has only been used a couple of times.
RRS L-bracket has a few minor scratches on the mounting flanges, but is overall in very fine conditions too.
It comes in the original box with manual and all, only part missing is the viewfinder cover, which I must have misplaced somewhere.
Price for the kit above: 850 USD + Shipping

Mint(?) copy of the FA*24mm f2.0 lens:
Perhaps the msot contrasty lens ever made by pentax and sharp lick a tack too. It has been a workhorse for me and is oddly enough in near mint condition cosmetically and optically entirely free from fungus, dust, marks and other faults, which is a little unusual for a lens like this.
When i write near mint, it is because i have not been able to find a scratch or anything like it, but check the images in any case and as mentioned it has been out in the real world thus the "near" mint description.
Comes of course with lens hood and orginal front and rear cap and soft pouch, the box is not there.
Price: USD600 + Shipping

Pentax FA43 mm limited (made in Japan):
My trusted workhorse, optically in perfect shape, the front lens cap has some scratches and marks, but otherwise in fine condition cosmetically as well.
I am one of the people that usually claim this lens to be the finest rendering lens ever made and I have yet to see a lens perform better to my eye.
Comes with original front and rear cap and of course original soft pouch, box is missing
Price: 500 USD + Shipping

Pentax FA77 mm limited:
The perfect portrait lens in K-mount for APS-C, IMHO yes. my favourite portraits shot on pentax is with this lens. it is made in Vietnam, but no issues on quality with this one, every bit as good as the MIJ one I used to own.
Again front lens cap has some scratches, but that aside it is in cosmetically in fine confitions and the glass is in perfect condition.
Comes with original front and rear cap and of course original soft pouch, box is missing
Price: 600 USD + shipping

Pentax DA10-17 mm Fisheye zoom:
Probably the funniest lens ever build. Can do anything from portraiture over landscapes, to interiors to commercial avaition. not bad for such a lens.
Optically it is like all of the lenses in perfect shape, so nothing there.
Save from the front cap which has a few minor scratches it is in very fine condition cosmetically as far as i can see, but as with all lenses having been in the real world, there is a risk I have overlooked a tiny mark somewhere.
check the images in the gallery if in doubt.
Comes with original front and rear caps and original soft pouch.
Price: 400 USD + Shipping

Hi Steve,
I have replied to your PM.
You are actaully a little closer than my sister she is living in Melbourne just south of you.

The DA21 story and what will become of it will follow later, I have an OK from adam, so just need time to write it all up.
