Pentax K-7 and Sigma 18-50 DC OS HSM 18-50mm F/2.8-4.5 *Price Drop

Hello, thanks for looking. I recently upgraded to the K-5 and picked up a new Tamron lens as well so it's time for a little out with the old and in with the new. Both of these items were bought off a fellow Pentaxian forumer in the marketplace and both are in great shape. The K-7 has about 13,500 shutter actuations according to camerashuttercount.com. There is some wear on the bottom from the last owner that you'll notice in the picture. The paint around the SR symbol on the front is a little worn as well. It comes with its original box, manual, cables, charger and original battery. The battery still holds a very good charge from what I can tell (I've only owned Pentax's that took AA batteries up to this point). A screen protector has also been applied to it. If you would like just the camera itself, I am asking for $350 shipped within CONUS. This includes all applicable paypal fees and shipping. Drop: $320

The Sigma lens is in great shape with no visible wear on the lens itself and the damped focus is still well damped and the focus has a very short, smooth throw for you AFers out there. It is a very nice step up from the standard kit lens and very cost effective for what it's worth. It's a good starting point for those who want to get away from the kit lens and you get a lot of the neat features that are found in the higher end Sigma lenses (in lens stabilization, silent HSM focus, in lens zoom, non-rotating filter thread etc). The stabilization in the lens can be switched on and off and while its stabilization works better than the onboard SR, it will drain the battery a bit faster! There is no damage to it optically and I see very little, if any, internal dust. It's still a fairly new lens (comparatively speaking). I am asking $170 shipped within CONUS for the lens and this includes all fees and shipping costs. Drop: $150

If you would like both, I am asking for $470 shipped within CONUS. If you have other questions, feel free to contact me. Thanks!
