Item Description
The unit is used, but in near-mint condition. You can save a lot of $ and get a real workhorse of a flash.

In short, this is one of the best flashes money can buy for the Pentax DSLR system, and will vastly improve your experience with a Pentax digital camera. For all hobbyists, wedding and social photographers, etc. — *this* is the flash unit to have. Far more powerful and versatile than many third party flashes.

Payment by Paypal.
Cash is also okay for Melbourne offers.

The Pentax AF-540 FGZ is a professional flash unit that is fully compatible with the entire line of Pentax cameras, from the original 67 to 645N II & MZ-S, MZ-SD or digital *ist, K100D, K110D, K10D, K20, K7, K5, K5II, K3, K30, K50, 645, etc. series cameras. It will support advanced flash functions of even the latest digital SLR camera models.

Full manual control of flash output is possible even in slave mode, or use the TTL flash capabilities of the camera it's mounted on to achieve painless exposure with every aperture. The pop-up flash incorporated into many Pentax 35mm SLRs can be used to trigger the AF-540 FGZ wirelessly, and it can also be done with TTL metering!

Return Policy & Additional Details
I think there should be no issues with his flash. You will be very happy with it. Take a good care of it, use good quality batteries, use protective sleeve when storing it and it will provide you a lifetime of enjoyment.
Flash is perfectly ok, and works as specified. So don't ask me to return this unit to me after a month of (mis)use because you screwed up something on it, dropped it, submerged it, etc.

Please send me a private message if interested in the item!
