Pentax K-01 body, Tamron 17-50mm and 28-75mm f/2.8 SP zoom lenses

Pentax K-01 body w/box and accessories - $225 plus shipping ($15 in US) SOLD
Tamron AF 17-50mm F2.8 XR LD Aspherical IF SP - $265 plus shipping ($8 in US) SOLD
Tamron 28-75mm F2.8 AF XR Di LD Macro SP lens - $295 plus shipping ($10 in US) SOLD

Hello all! After much waffling about the right body and lenses for me, I have decided to let these go. They are all in excellent condition with minimal signs of use, and all work as they should. But they don't quite fit my needs, so now they can be yours. International shipping is available, please ask about rates to your country. Free shipping on second (and third!) item if bought as a bundle.

The K-01 is a neat body, much praised here on the forums, and with a marked style. I find it very cool-looking, and fun to use, with straight-forward controls. Video is especially handy relative to the other DSLR bodies I have used. But I can't quite get the hang of focus peaking, and find my K-5 to be more familiar. IQ on the K-01 is amazing, and high ISO is right there with the K-5. Maybe you'd like to try it out! The box is a little worn, but everything else looks good, and all original paperwork is included. Note that it was originally a kit with a XS 40, but I never got that lens, alas. Shutter count is 2,416. I have a screen protector film on the LCD which is peeling off a bit, otherwise the LCD still looks darn good.

The Tamron lenses both have excellent reputations, and well earned. The 17-50 is wider, longer and faster than the new DA 20-40 Limited, with darn good IQ. See the forum review here for more information. The 28-75 is a less ideal range on APS-C, but it will shine on FF if/when that ever comes about. In the mean time it makes an excellent portrait or event lens, especially in low light. Both these lenses perform very well on the K-01, and I would highly recommend either of them with the body. The 17-50 has hood and mismatched caps; the 28-75 comes with hood caps box and paperwork.

Lower offers will be considered, but full price offers will take them. I won't mark as a "gift" for customs purposes, sorry. PayPal is the preferred payment method although I will consider other methods if you strongly prefer. They can be returned if not as described for a full refund, but please read the description carefully and if you have specific concerns, please ask questions first.

Thanks! Happy shopping, Nick

ps. 1st sample shot is from Tamron 28-75; 2nd is 17-50 on K-01

Seems I left out a shot of the 17-50, and will add some more test shots with the 17-50, mostly on the K-01:

My dad has that Tamron on his Canon and I love the picture quality. If I can get my stuff sold, I'll be interested.
