K5 + sigma 30mm 1.4 + tamron 17-50mm 2.8 + pentax M 50mm 1.7

Selling off my Pentax stuff with plans of reducing my camera gear down to just compact mirror-less stuff. Haven't had as much opportunity to take my K-5 out for any big outings, and I'm a bit too lazy to bring it out on casual outings.

K-5 (SOLD)
in Excellent condition! Just some signs of mild wear. No major dents/scratches, etc. Comes with everything except for the original cap (for where the lens inserts), but includes a replacement cap (which is much sturdier IMO). Has had a screen protector on the pack and the top screens since the first few weeks of purchase, so no scratches on either. Comes with a stylish demin strap as seen in photos.
Purchased in Dec 2010 and has about a 4,863 shutter count according to the PF shutter count tool

*THE CHARGER IS FOR NORTH AMERICAN SOCKETS* (A simple adapter works for australian sockets)

Sigma 30mm 1.4 (SOLD)
I would say this is like new, but to cover myself I'll say in excellent condition. There's a few small scuffs on the lens hood, but otherwise I can't find anything on the lens itself. No scratches or fungus on the glass, aperture blades are smooth, focuses well on my K5

Tamron 17-50mm 2.8 (SOLD)
Probably my favourite lens ever for my K5 because of the constant 2.8 aperture and sharpness. Makes a huge difference over the kit lens. Super sharp, no front/back focusing issues with this particular one (this is one of the made in Japan ones). This is about excellent condition. Has had a UV filter on since pretty much day 1, so the glass has no scratches. Scuffs on lens hood and lens cap. Aperture blades are smooth.

Pentax M 50mm 1.7 (SOLD)
old old lens, in fair condition. Glass has no scratches or fungus though. Mainly the body is scuffed/scratched as expected from this old lens, but this is purely cosmetic.

As you can see, these are all priced to sell. All are negotiable, and am not too picky on the price as long as it's reasonable. I'd rather a quick and easy sale than a long and drawn out battle for the best price I can get. Hence I'd rather sell them as a whole package and would let everything go for $1200

Items are in AUSTRALIA and I'd rather ship locally, but will ship internationally if the buyer pays for the additional shipping costs. Shipping costs will be worked out later, depending on who from where buys what.
I also would rather sell to a buyer who is responsive to communication and does not leave me hanging.

Payment is via paypal
PM me with any questions or offers!

Hi, I'd like to offer the asking price for your K5 (A$700). I'm local (Melbourne) so I can pay standard delivery costs as well. Let me know if you decide to sell just the K5 separately.

Quick question. Any known focusing problems with the 30mm? I know you've stated it focuses fine on your K5, but just want to make sure.

Also, how old is the lens? Assuming no warranty, right?

I don't think there are any known focusing problems with the sigma. I bought it just this January from a local retailer, Digital Camera Warehouse (non-grey market) so it would still be under warranty. It includes the warranty cards as well. Warranty is for 24 months total, so there' still a year and 2 months left on the warranty with CR kennedy.
