Item Description
I had all this stuff listed for sale when an offer to purchase came through in the first day. I thought it was too good to be true, but I even got a deposit to hold it until today. Today, the buyer backed out saying he couldn't afford it and his wife would kill him. Jeepers! If your wife factors into your purchases......fine. But that means check with her first.

I just bought all this stuff a couple months ago. And I finally realized that I'm more of a gear buyer than a photographer. I'm throwing in the towel. I'm keeping a cheap-ass Panasonic superzoom camera and an old Fuji X100 for when I want to pretend that I'm a photographer. But all this expensive gear sitting on a shelf getting no use is just pointless. Everything is like new.....or VERY close to it. I simply don't use the stuff. I bought all of it new except for the K-5 Limited, but that I bought from a Japanese shop and it had 12 shutter it may as well have been new. Money back guarantee to anyone who feels like the items are not at least a 9 out of ten. It's been on a shelf in my closet 99% of the time I have owned it (and that has been only around 2 months).

1. PENTAX K-5 Special Limited Edition Silver with DA 40mm f2.8 XS - I bought this 2 months ago with 12 shutter actuations. I had wanted a limited silver Pentax for so long, this is what started my Pentax binge. Who knew such a simple purchase would end up costing me so much money? I'm not splitting up the set, so don't bother to ask. It's so flipping sweet that if it doesn't sell, I'll just keep it. I MAY have put another 100 actuations on the shutter, but that's about it. The lens is perfect. The body shows no wear anywhere. There is no manual or disc, but everything else that came with it is there. The strap and cords have never even been unwrapped. Battery charger and battery work fine and hold a good long charge. $550 (includes fees and insured shipping to US address)

2. PENTAX K-3 w/ 18-135 WR lens - Probably around 200 shutter actuations, this is definitely like new as well. Lens comes with front and rear caps, body comes with body cap and everything that came in the box. Battery, charger, unused strap, and manuals all in the original box. Also, I will not split up the kit. If you don't need the lens, I'm sure someone here does. It's a nice sharp copy and it's never been used in the rain. $795 ( K-3 BODY sold......lens still available) (includes fees and insured shipping to US address)

3. Sigma 18-35mm f1.8 DC HSM - Why this lens isn't more popular around here is a mystery to me. This thing embarrasses all the Pentax offerings in these focal lengths. I had read that focus is not accurate, but it focused fast and accurate for me every time. I think it's more an issue of user error and shallow DOF. Comes with unused carry pouch, front and rear caps and unused lens hood in original box. Minty in every way. $600 (SOLD) (includes fees and insured shipping to your US address)

4. Pentax HD DA 55-300 WR - I bought this just over a month ago when they dropped the price to $320. I thought I'd never see it that low again. Turns out I was wrong. I took a few test shots with it to make sure it worked.....otherwise it is new. Complete with front and rear caps, hood and box. Hurts to sell it for $240(SOLD)

5. Tamron SP AF 90mm f2.8 macro (SOLD) - I bought this one new from a local camera shop that discontinued carrying Pentax. Retail was $500 and I got it for $350. I used it one afternoon to test it out. It's really a great little macro lens, and that limiter switch is quite handy. You get it like new with front and rear caps and carry pouch and box for $300 (SOLD) (includes fees and insured shipping to your US address)

Shoot me a pm with any questions....there's will be small discounts given on combined purchases to reflect my cost savings on postage.

I'm willing to split up the K-3 and the 18-135mm lens.

K-3 = $600 shipped (Comes with box and everything in it, except for the lens)
18-135 = $250 shipped (comes without a retail box, but complete with both caps and hood)

I can't believe no one has scooped up that limited silver K-5 yet. I actually prefer the K-5 to the K-3 in many respects.

K-3 sale pending.

Had a few messages about everything I have left, but no closers.

If anyone combines one of the remaining zoom lenses with that K-5 limited package, I'll knock $50 off the package..... or add them both for $75 off the package total.

55-300 sold.

18-135 has received much interest, but no one ready to buy the cheapest, mintest used one on the market (yet).
There's some wiggle room on the K-5 kit before I try it on the Bay.
