[SOLD] Pentax AF-500 FTZ Wireless Flash, Sync Cord 5P, Adapters, Power Pack

Selling one of my flash setups:

AF-500 FTZ Flash, this was the flagship flash prior to the 540 coming out. See Boz's site for the technical details. This can be a wireless (optical) slave - it will fire when it sees your other flash goes off. The flash might have some signs of use (I bought it used) but it is in great condition and I used it 5 minutes ago. Comes with the (p)leather case, box, and instructions. Asking $90 shipped, including PayPal fees.

I also have the very neat TR Power Pack II which accepts 6 "C" batteries and plugs right into the AF-500 FTZ flash. (No, it doesn't power any other flashes as far as I know.) Greatly reduces the recycle time - I shot an entire wedding without changing batteries once. Includes the unit and connecting cord to the flash. Asking $90 shipped, including PayPal fees.

For corded (not wireless) off-camera, I am also selling the following 3 pieces as a kit:
Hot Shoe Adapter F, Sync Cord 5P, and Off-Camera Adapter F. This allows you to connect a flash off-camera (on your bracket, for instance) and still have complete control from the camera. I believe this is compatible will all Pentax flashes. Asking $70 for the three pieces, in boxes and with instructions.

Responding to PMs for pictures of the flash, it looks like a flash. It isn't heavily used. (It came from Keh in EX condition and is in the same state if that means anything to you.)
