Please read below the items for details about the deals.

********************

Pentax K7 - $350 *PayPal fee included!*

- Pentax K7 DSLR Camera (Shutter Count = 2937)
- Stock Battery (Pentax D-LI90, 1860 mAh)
- Spare Battery (Zeikos ZE-LI90, 2800 mAh)
- 2x Charger (both Pentax) for the batteries + 1 power cord
- Pentax neck strap (unused)
- Manual

I purchased this camera from the original owner through a local Craigslist deal a few weeks ago. The person was a kind elderly man, and he said that the only major action this camera has seen is a trip to Italy. The camera is just over 2 years old, purchased from Amazon. I got it when it had a shutter count of around 2400, and I took it for some test drives (lots of boring indoor shots, a couple of outdoor walkarounds, a party) to make sure everything was working, and to see how it compared to my K30 (spoiler alert: K30 is better). That is how it ended up with the current shutter count.

Everything mechanical is in excellent working condition. For its appearance, based on the condition key, I would conservatively place it between Good and Fair. There are wear marks on the bottom corners of the camera, and wear marks on the mode dial (especially the AUTO setting, since I'm guessing that is where the previous owner used it the most). There are some marks where the metal strap rings used to be on the sides. There is a FOLGA clear cover on the LCD that the original owner put in shortly after getting the camera. When you buy this item, I can take off the cover for you, but I don't think the cover can be reapplied. For details on all of this, please see the pictures.

Accessories: As listed above:

- Stock Battery (Pentax D-LI90, 1860 mAh)
- Spare Battery (Zeikos ZE-LI90, 2800 mAh)
- 2x Charger (both Pentax) for the batteries + 1 power cord
- Pentax neck strap (unused)
- Manual

********************

Pentax DA 18-55 WR - $95 *PayPal fee included!*

History: Purchased from another member through these forums around 2 months ago. He was the original owner. The lens came from his kit.
Optics: Perfect optics, no front/back focus issues or decentering. The lens behaves as a normal specimen should. Minimal dusts inside. No fungus, no haze, no other objects are present that may decrease the quality of images produced by this lens.
Mechanics: Zoom and focus rings rotate smoothly. Aperture blades are smooth, snappy, and free from oils. Autofocus performs as it would on a normal specimen. Quickshift works as it should.
Physical Condition: No significant dings, marks, or scratches on the body. The lens mount shows signs of wear.
Accessories: Comes with a front + back cap, UV filter, and a lens hood. The lens hood has a crack in it from the previous owner, but he fixed it with glue and it has held fast for me. The lens hood still snaps on quite firmly onto the lens body. Also, I am missing the little panel window that goes on the bottom of the hood. While I can think of scenarios where it can be a bother, it has never been an issue for me.
Notes: This lens was quite the magical workhorse for me. It's only going because I got another lens that covers these focal lengths.

Here are two photos I took with this lens:

********************

Pentax M 50 1.7 - $30 *PayPal fee included!*

History: Rescued by me from a local thrift store bin last week.
Optics: Perfect optics, no front/back focus issues or decentering. The lens behaves as a normal specimen should. There are dusts inside, but it is normal for a lens of this age. The dusts do not affect image quality. No fungus, no haze, no other objects are present that may decrease the quality of images produced by this lens.
Mechanics: Focus ring rotates smoothly. Aperture blades are smooth, snappy, and free from oils.
Physical Condition: There are some dings, marks, and scratches on the body, but it is normal for a lens of this age, and quite respectable given where I found it. The lens mount shows signs of wear, and is probably a bit dirtier than normal, but again nothing that is really bad.
Accessories: Comes with a front + back cap.
Notes: I would keep this if I didn't already have the exceptional Pentax F 50mm f1.7.

********************

Pentax F 100-300 - $60 *PayPal fee included!* (comes with free 2x teleconverter!)

History: Purchased by me through a local Craigslist deal from the original owner. I have owned it for about 3 months.
Optics: Perfect optics, no front/back focus issues or decentering. The lens behaves as a normal specimen should. There are dusts inside, but it is normal for a lens of this age. The dusts do not affect image quality. In particular, there is one big blob of dust, just behind the front element. I have tried to take a picture of it, and it is linked below. That blob does not affect the image quality whatsoever. No fungus, no haze, no other objects are present that may decrease the quality of images produced by this lens.
Mechanics: Zoom and focus rings rotate smoothly. There can sometimes be a tiny bit of a grinding sound (as if there was a grain of sand under the treads of the zoom ring) depending on the angle you are holding the lens while rotating the zoom ring, but it does not affect the operation of the zooming. Aperture blades are smooth, snappy, and free from oils. Autofocus performs really well.
Physical Condition: There are minimal dings, marks, and scratches on the body, normal for a lens of this age. The lens mount shows signs of wear, but again nothing that is out of the ordinary for a lens of this age.
Accessories: Comes with a front + back cap and a 1A sky filter. *BONUS* Vivitar 2x teleconverter. The teleconverter pairs nicely with this lens.
Notes: This was the first ever lens that I got after my kit lens. I got it so I could spy on my neighbors and look into their apartments. It performed flawlessly. However, it sat 3rd on the depth chart for telezoom solutions, so I want to try and give it a good home before it dies a slow, dusty death on my shelf. The teleconverter was thrown in to sweeten the pot, and because it will also die a slow dusty death if it doesn't move. Don't let them die.

Pentax DA 55-300 - $280 *SOLD*

History: Purchased through a local Craigslist deal from the original owner around 1.5 months ago.
Optics: Perfect optics, no front/back focus issues or decentering. The lens behaves as a normal specimen should. There are some dusts inside, but it is normal for a lens of this type (this lens sucks in air like a ). The dusts do not affect image quality. No fungus, no haze, no other objects are present that may decrease the quality of images produced by this lens.
Mechanics: Zoom and focus rings rotate smoothly. Aperture blades are smooth, snappy, and free from oils. Autofocus performs as it would on a normal specimen. Quickshift works as it should.
Physical Condition: No significant dings, marks, or scratches on the body. The lens mount shows signs of wear.
Accessories: Comes with original box, a front + back cap, and a lens hood. I am missing the little panel window that goes on the bottom of the hood. While I can think of scenarios where it can be a bother, it has never been an issue for me.
Notes: It's a spectacular lens, and definitely one of the best bang-for-buck lenses in the Pentax lineup. I simply don't use it enough, so for me this is basically a pile of cash sitting around doing nothing.

********************

Sigma 30 1.4 - $317 *SOLD*

History: Purchased from B&H last month from one of their Xmas deals. I am the original owner. The lens has seen less than one month of usage.
Optics: The lens needed a -4 AF adjustment on my K30. This type of minimal adjustment is pretty standard for these fast lenses, and particularly the 30mm and 50mm f1.4 Sigmas (and it seems pretty much every Sigma lens ever in the history of space/time). Minimal minimal dusts inside that have just gotten in from the short time I've been testing it. No fungus, no haze, no other objects are present that may decrease the quality of images produced by this lens.
Mechanics: Focus ring rotates smoothly. Aperture blades are smooth, snappy, and free from oils. There is a tiny spot (like a tiny pock mark) on one of he aperture blades - it was there when I received the lens, and it has no effect on the operation of the aperture blades or the image quality (please see thread 1 linked below for proof). Autofocus performs as it would on a normal specimen (aside from the focus issue, as noted above).
Physical Condition: No significant dings, marks, or scratches on the body. The lens mount shows minimal signs of wear.
Accessories: Comes with original box, soft case, a front + back cap, lens hood, all the papers.
Notes: My struggles with this lens are well documented. See the threads linked below. After re-reading those threads, it seems a bit more that I'm just a paranoid dummy. Still, at the end of the day the frustration this lens caused me + Sigma Canada's sub-par warranty service has made me decide to just cut my losses. If you are in the US, you will be treated to some exceptional customer service from Sigma USA if you decide to have this lens calibrated. I'm honestly not sure it even needs it. The price is $317 from me because after B&H's sale price + duties + taxes + shipping, the cost came out to $417 for me. I'm trying to keep my loss to just $100.

********************

Raynox DCR 150 Macro Converter - $50 *SOLD*

History: Purchased through these forums from another member last month. He was the original owner.
Optics: Perfect optics.
Mechanics: What mechanics. (The universal adapter works perfectly)
Physical Condition: Close to perfect. There may be some wear marks on the treads, but I couldn't really see them.
Accessories: Comes with original box, a front + back cap, hard case, universal adapter, step down ring, original papers.
Notes: I wanted to try some macro shooting. It was fun, but it's just not really my thing. I don't necessarily need to move this, but I wanted to throw it out there in case another member is interested at trying out some macro shooting. This pairs REALLY well with the DA 55-300, and the step-down ring I'm throwing in fits the DA 55-300.

The pictures sometimes show the lenses listed below with caps. The caps shown on the lenses may not be the caps that it ships out with, as I have more lenses than caps, and must mix and match to ensure that everything is fulfilled.

Gah! Sorry cajun I had a feeling I missed a message or two. The end of the last work week really caught me off guard with busyness and I had to squeak in time to monitor the sales.

Thanks for the well wishes, hopefully we can do business in the future.
