[SOLD] Selling all my Pentax Gear - LX, MZ-S, limiteds, rare K lenses.

Hi all – well I’m finally cutting the cord and letting all my Pentax gear go. I have a baby on the way so I feel the need to liquidate most of my toys.

I will accept paypal payments or USPS money orders. Sales within the US are preferred.

Shipping within the US will be $15 per item (USPS priority insured) – If you want to buy more than one item I will combine shipping.

Unless otherwise stated all lenses come w/ caps and are 100% functional. These lenses have been used so expect a spec or two of dust inside.

Pictures of the items for sale can be seen on my flickr page:

Flickr: DAP2000's Photostream

If you have any questions give me a PM (or email).


Here we go:

Pentax LX #1 – I bought this one about 4 years ago from the original owner (he had a CLA done by Pentax USA to fix the dreaded “sticky mirror syndrome” just before selling it to me). Cosmetics are excellent. There is slight peeling of the leatherette on one or two of the corners – the covering is still very solid. Comes with an FA-1 finder. $325 New Price $300

Pentax LX #2 – this was my main user camera. The original leatherette has been replaced by “griptac” synthetic covering (much better than the original stuff). I had a complete CLA performed by Pentax USA about 2 years ago (I specifically requested that all rubber parts within the mirror box, and shutter mechanism be replaced, the ASA/meter switch be replaced, and the aperture simulator parts be replaced w/new components – I wanted this camera to be problem free for a LONG time). The shutter is the newer style (supposedly more durable). Cosmetics are excellent. Comes with an FA-2 finder, a factory grip, strap lugs, and an aftermarket beattie matte grid screen. $400 SOLD

Pentax MZ-S – I am the original owner of this camera (I bought it just before they were discontinued). Everything is working great. Cosmetics are like new. I never really used this camera a whole lot due to the fact that I never really took a shine to autofocus and preferred using my LXes. Comes with original box (sorry – I lost the instruction manual for it) $525

Pentax MZ-S grip – Used only once or twice. Comes with orginial box. $150.

If you want the MZ-S camera and grip (preferred) the combo price is $625New Price $600

Pentax FA 31/1.8 limited – like new (comes with original box/papers/pouch/caps etc.) $750SALE PENDING

Pentax FA 77/1.8 limited – Ex+ (comes with original lens pouch and caps) $550SOLD

Pentax FA 135/2.8 – Ex cond. minor barrel wear, glass is perfect $300SOLD

Pentax K 30/2.8 – V.Good condition. Some brassing of the aperture ring, perfect glass, comes with original leather case (case is kind of tattered but useable). $175 SOLD

Pentax K 50/1.4 – Ex cond. Very little wear on the barrel. One tiny pinpoint bright spot on the coating of the front element (located a couple of mm from the edge of the element – does not have any effect on the images). $85 New Price $70

Pentax K 85/1.8 – Ex+ cond. This lens is in remarkable shape. Almost no wear on the barrel. Perfect glass, a spec or two of dust inside. Comes with an original pentax soft lens pouch and a non-original hood. You would be hard pressed to find this lens in better condition. $500

Pentax K 120/2.8 – like new. This lens looks like it has barely ever been used. Consider this lens a stretched version of the K 105/2.8. Pretty rare. Comes with a non-original hood. $225 SOLD

Pentax A 1.4X-S teleconverter – EX cond, perfect glass $125New Price $100

BTW – if anybody wants to dabble w/ rangefinder gear I also have a canon P kit for sale. $250Sold

Some new items that I have found laying around in a closet since I posted the original add (no pictures posted on flickr, but if there is any interest I will send some to you):

Pentax FA-2 finder for LX - like new condition $85

Pentax FA-2 finder for LX - new in box - never used $150

Pentax cold weather battery pack for LX - basically a long cord that you screw into the LX battery compartment w/ a remote battery on the end (uses same batteries) - They keep the batteries warm in cold weather so the meter doesn't die out on you - EX + cond $35

Pentax Soft release for LX - this is the official Pentax soft release button attachment made for the LX - this is VERY useful on later bodies w/ the tall shutter button guard - NEW $30

I looked through your list.... and I suddenly found that I'm cured of LBA!

Seriously, you've a mighty fine collection over there, and at good prices. Its just too bad that I have a lot of primes similar to the selection of lens that you put up, else I'd get quite a lot of them from you. If only you put them up a year ago! I'd grab your 85 in a heartbeat, if i didn't already have the 77 ltd and vt 90mm.

I'm sure you'd be able to get buyers for all your items very soon!
