K-5 body, 12-24, 16-50, 50-135, 18-250, 50-200, 55-300, Tamron 1.4x TC, and a DA 21mm

All prices include shipping in the U.S. Please add $10 for items shipped to Canada. I accept Paypal or Amazon Payments.

K-5 body $725 Sold
DA 12-24mm $625 Sold
DA L 55-300mm $150 Sold
DA 18-250mm $325 Sold
DA* 16-50mm $700 Sold
Tamron 1.4x Pz-AF MC4 $200 Sold
DA 21mm Limited $420 Sold
DA* 50-135mm $750 Withdrawn
DA 50-200mm WR $150 Sold

All items are in "Excellent" condition and come in box with all original accessories unless otherwise noted. This means lens hoods, bags, front/rear caps, boxes, etc. The item I would refer to as in "Good" condition would be the DA 18-250mm. Please see descriptions for further detail. Anyhow, since there are so many lenses, I didn't post photos for everything. I stand by my descriptions as I have 100% feedback here and intend to keep it that way. Should you not be happy, you have 7 days to return the item for a refund. Return shipping is on your dime and items are expected to be returned in the same condition with all accessories.

I've also included image samples at the bottom of each description. What better way to see how a lens performs than to see the final output from it

DA 50-200mm WR $165
I'm the original owner, purchased this lens on a whim from during a bad case of LBA and thinking I would shoot a lot in the rain. The lens has never been subjected to conditions requiring the WR. I was messing around with it in studio and was surprised at the detail I managed to get when combined with the K-5.

K-5 body $725
This is my third copy, as I kept buying and returning them when I discovered issues. I'm happy to report this one has no problems that I could find. 7484 actuations according to PhotoMe means a ton of life left on this great camera. The camera has never been exposed to inclement weather conditions. It comes in the original box and includes all original accessories except for the white cheap plastic body cap. It was lost some time ago, but I've since replaced it with a different cap as seen in the photo. I'll also include a spare 3rd party battery in addition to the original.

DA 12-24mm $625
First owner, purchased from Amazon, and one of my most beloved lenses. I was debating whether or not to keep this versus a 15mm Limited, since the 12-24 is pricey and never in stock at B&H or Adorama.

DA* 16-50mm $700
I've tried to hate this lens from all the negative reviews, but I can't. It's just so versatile and the output is awesome. I'm the original owner, purchased in late 2009 or early 2010. It's my workhorse, used in weddings, studios, and landscapes. Silent focusing with no SDM problems. Never used in inclement weather.

DA* 50-135mm $750
Ditto on everything I said about the 16-50mm with this lens. This is my de facto portraiture lens. There appears to be a tiny piece broken off from the thread of the hood, but it is not problematic or really visible unless you're looking for it. The hood still locks into place in the reverse or normal position.

DA 18-250mm $325
I'd say this lens is in "Good" condition. I bought it used off of Craigslist, so I have no idea how many owners it's been through. There's dust behind the front element, as is common for superzooms, but it does not affect the image output. It's a bit difficult to attach the lens hood in reverse, but it snaps on fine in the normal position. Lastly, this lens is a creeper (i.e. prone to lens creep), which I believe is a known issue for this series. I've never had a problem with it, since I use the lock switch when carrying the lens around. The lens is surprisingly sharp for a superzoom and has now become a Pentax rarity. This lens comes in original box, with hood, front, and rear caps.

DA L 55-300mm $150
I'm the original owner and received this lens as part of a K-x combo, my very first Pentax. Like all DA L's that came this way, there is no original box or hood. I've since purchased a knock-off Pentax PH-RBG hood and will include it in the sale along with front and rear lens caps. I've had several successful Pentax Photo Gallery submissions thanks to this lens.

Tamron 1.4x Pz-AF MC $200
Excellent condition and I believe I'm the second owner. Good teleconverters are hard to find in the Pentax system and the upcoming one from Pentax will probably be more expensive. I've only used this a handful of times coupled to the DA 55-300mm. It's slow to focus, but works well with all lenses including SDM ones. The glass is clean and clear. It comes in it's original bag, box, with front and rear caps.

DA 21mm Limited $420
I'm the second owner of this lens, purchased used. There's a small nick on the metal hood that the guy didn't tell me about, but I wasn't fussy about it. Aside from that, the lens is in excellent condition. The build build quality is great like all the other limiteds. The lens comes in its original box, with front/rear caps, and bag.

Thanks to everyone who have made a purchase with me thus far. Lenses are being shipped tomorrow. The 50-135mm has been withdrawn from sale for the time being, but the 21 and 50-200 remain available.

First bump in 2 weeks. DA 21mm and DA 50-200mm WR are still available. The WR zoom should come in handy for those currently in hurricane Sandy's path. Joking of wishes to those out there, be safe
