Item Description
I'm selling my recently purchased (March, 2012) Pentax K-5 + Pentax battery grip + lenses. If you're wondering why I'm selling my brand new kit, it's because I'm moving back to Olympus. I was a long-time Olympus shooter and I'm looking to get back into that camp. I've enjoyed my K-5 immensely, but my heart is with Oly. Cheesy, I know. Here are the prices for the gear mentioned:

Pentax K-5 (body ONLY): $800
Pentax D-BG4 Battery Grip: $200
Tamron 70-200mm f/2.8 (Pentax mount): $700
Tamron 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5 (Pentax mount): $400

TOTAL KIT PRICE: $2000 ($100 savings)

Condition of gear: As this entire kit was bought new from B&H Photo in March, 2012, everything is in the condition when I received it. HOWEVER, two issues I want to mention: 1) there is a spec of dust ON THE VIEWFINDER of the K-5, which can be blown off with a blower. I chose not do buy a blower because it never affected my shooting or anything to do with picture quality (spec is on the viewfinder, NOT the sensor). 2) there is a slight indentation on the battery grip where it screws into the camera. This is how the battery grip shipped and it is merely cosmetic. It in no way affects the operation of the camera.

No, NOT cheesy. You will enjoy using equipment where your heart is, and that is a real thing for a person. By the way, and I'm sure you already know this, here is the DP Review of the Oly E-M5, and it is highly favorable (their Gold Award). I have seen pixel peeping images from it and they are quite good and, from what I've seen, competitive with the best of APS-C, even at high ISO's. Sorry to have you leave Pentax, but do enjoy your Oly products.

good lack on Olympus system, but for understand Pentax you mast work with Pentax lens like limited or star series - i can"t see this lens in your bag .. Pentax with Tamron - bad choise of lens and color.
