K-5, 15, 21, 31, 35, 40, 70, Metz 58 Flash

For Sale: my whole Pentax kit! Unfortunately, the time has come to sell my gear. I'm kinda choked up about selling all of this, as I have sentimental attachment from taking many great photos with all of this. This gear does not get enough use to justify me keeping it anymore. I hope it goes to another Pentaxian that will enjoy it as much as me!

The camera, all of the lenses (besides the DA 70, see below), and the flash were purchased new by me. All have original boxes, pouches, etc. All of the lenses had a filter attached the instant they were taken out the box (or are in mint and hardly taken out of the box, FA 31, see below). Subsequently, all the glass (front and rear) are pristine. Most are in like new condition or excellent condition (I'm honestly not quite sure of the difference), some are mint, and a couple have barely noticeable cosmetic wear (for example, small scratches from taking in and out of camera bag, etc.).

K-5: In excellent condition. I put a Giottos glass screen protector over the back LCD right after I took it out of the box. There are probably normal signs of use, but I honestly can't see any. Built like a tank! $250. Pending.

DA 15mm: A favorite! See the classic "15mm Limited controls my mind" thread on this one. This may have been my most used lens, and therefore has a few cosmetic scratches on the lens cap. Other than that, the lens is in like new/excellent condition. SOLD.

DA 21mm: In like new/excellent condition with only minor signs of use. SOLD.

FA 31mm: I bought this in a fit of LBA. It has barely been out of the box and never taken outside of my house. It is in like new/mint condition. The lens cap has the faintest of scratches. Other than that, this baby is mint. If you have been wanting one, now is your chance! $925.

DA 35mm: Another favorite! Macro ability and very sharp. Like new condition with only minor signs of use. SOLD.

DA 40mm: Yet another favorite! This one sold me on Pentax. So small. So awesome. Like new condition. SOLD.

DA 70mm: I bought this used from a fellow Pentaxian on this forum. It is not a frequently used focal length for me, but when I did use it, it shined! Normal signs of use but very clean. SOLD.

Metz Mecablitz 58 AF-2 flash: I bought this just to see if I liked using a flash. Turns out, I didn't! This one is mint, and only used a handful of times. $250. SOLD.

I have tried to price everything fairly, but please feel free to send me an offer.

Buyer pays shipping. I accept Paypal.

**UPDATE** I will only ship to Paypal verified addresses. It is my understanding that this is the only way that Paypal will offer Seller Protection. Sorry for any inconvenience.

I sent you a pm about your DA 40 but the original thread disappeared.

Anyway, check your PM again.

PM'd about 21 a couple of days ago and I think before anyone else did, then original thread disappeared. Still interested.

Original Poster
Thank you for all the interest and I apologize for the delay in response. The moderator deleted my post since I did not mention I accept Paypal in the original post.

Also, I did not specify shipping charges. The buyer pays the shipping charges. I will ship insured via UPS.

There have been more responses than I anticipated and I am a bit overwhelmed - perhaps I priced them too low? : )

I have been responding to the messages in the order I have received them and giving the buyers a reasonable amount of time to reply.

If a deal cannot be struck with the first individual that responded, I will then move on to next buyer.

Thank you for the interest!
