DA 35mm AL, DA L 55-300 ED, Sigma 18-125 HSM | Price drop

Hi guys. I got the K-x a few months ago bundled with a few lenses and I was content to sit on it, but then I got a good deal on a K-30 with even more lenses Everything here is in great shape and the lenses have little, if any, internal dusting, and they all functional perfectly. They're all fun lenses to use and the DA 35mm AL is pretty amazing as all the reviews say but I'm pretty used to shooting primes on manual so I don't find myself using it much. The Sigma is pretty outstanding for what it is. I've never had a lens before that went from wide to telephoto range, and the convenience is pretty nifty and I am quite surprised by the quality. I was expecting something that was just above kit IQ, but the shots come out a few good steps above that. I'd hang on to it, but I shoot mostly within the 17-50 range and I'd rather opt for a constant f/2.8 as that's a bit more useful to me than added reach. The DA 55-300 ED is also another fun piece of glass as I've never had zoom that went that long! For a bundled kit lens, this thing shoots significantly sharper photos and has faster AF than the 50-200 I've used in the past. As I already mentioned before, I don't shoot often in the telephoto range. I'm fine and happy with my Pentax M 135mm. Scoff at me, if you will.

I'll find out the shutter count on the K-x in a bit. As far as I remember, it's surprisingly low for a somewhat "older" body. The K-x will come with the standard DA L 18-55 kit lens as well as some enloop batters and a charger for those. I don't have the original box or the manual, but I can include an original strap. For this set up, it will only be $215 (Shuttercount is: 3219) sold

For the Sigma 18-125 I'll ask $300 $225. Reviews are here .

The DA 35mm f/2.4 AL will be $155 $145. Reviews are here.

And the DA L 55-300 ED will be $200 $165. Reviews are here.Sold

All shipping and fees are already included in the price.

They all have front and back caps. All the back caps are generic. Hoods are included with the Sigma and the DA 55-300. If you have other questions, feel free to ask. Thanks for looking!

edit: Oops. Pictures would be nice I bet.

Edit again: I guess I forgot to mention that I accept PayPal for payments

Nevermind, I still can't get it to let me send you a pm.

I'm extremely interested in your k-x. Have you figured out the shutter count yet? What is the physical condition like? Any scratches, scuffs, or dust? Also, do you ship across the country? And how would you expect payment?

I wouldn't mind, but I don't know of any good international shipping services that don't charge at least $50-$60usd. If you don't mind the added cost then it's no problem to me!

edit: Pending transaction on the K-x bundle.
