K5 (low shutter count), 540FGZ, three amigos, FA 50, FA* 300, Sigma 17-50 and 70-200

Happy New Year!

You won't see a lot of posts or feedback from me, but I've been here for a while and greatly appreciate the knowledge that I've gained reading the discussions in the forum. However, I've decided to try full-frame, at least for a while, and need to sell my Pentax gear. I've tried to list what I consider are "fair" prices after looking at the lens database, but let me know if you think otherwise.

All items are in Excellent condition unless noted, and prices include USPS Priority Shipping. I do not have the original boxes for these lenses, as we moved after I purchased most, and with five kids I need to get boxes out of the house or we'll run out of room. Additional images can be found here:

K5 with wireless remote ($700) Sold
Purchased earlier this year, less than 3700 actuations. Wireless remote included.

AF-540FGZ with STO-FEN diffuser ($300) Sold
I've used this a lot over the holidays and gotten good results bouncing with some cheap radio triggers.

Pentax FA 31 Limited F1.8 ($875) Sold
This is the lens that I've used more than any of the others, by a large amount. I purchased a K10D in late 2006. This was the first limited I purchased, and it didn't really leave that camera. The lens itself is in excellent+ condition. However, the lens cap has a small discoloration / scratch that I try to show in one of the images. Made in Japan.

Pentax FA 43 Limited F1.9 ($525) Sold
The last limited lens I purchased. I used it exclusively at my brother's wedding after purchasing the K5 this past summer. Other than that, it's basically new. There is a ding on the lens cap. I do not know it's origin, but the lens is unaffected. Made in Japan.

Pentax FA 50; F1.4 ($300) Sold
I purchased this lens along with two zooms (the 16-45 and 50-200) when I purchased the K10D in late 2006. Soon after, I had the 77 Limited, so this has not gotten a lot of use. However, took it trick-or-treating this fall and was reminded of its sharpness.

Pentax FA 77 Limited F1.8 ($675) Sold
The second limited lens that I purchased. Wonderful for portrait work. Used for this purpose with my kids. Lightly used, made in Japan.

Pentax FA* 300; F4.5 ($850) Sold
Purchased used several years ago off Ebay. Used twice, probably no more than 50 images captured. There are some very small cosmetic defects, one on the metal body and another on the hood. There are images of these as well.

Sigma 17-50; F2.8 EX HSM ($575) Sold
This lens is the reason I'm going to try full-frame. It was purchased two months ago, but it really hasn't left my camera since then. My hit rate with this lens is fantastic, and it's exceptionally sharp.

Sigma 70-200; F2.8 EX OS HSM ($1075) Sold
Purchased 18 months ago to use for my daughter's dance recital. Since then, it's been used one other time, for one of my son's soccer games. Like new condition.

Thanks for looking and please PM me if you have questions. I would be willing to ship outside the US, but haven't done that before and would have to research the cost.
