[SOLD] Selling my entire Pentax system

Well, that's it everyone, it's all SOLD. My thanks to everyone who bought items or emailed me with interest. Everyone was great to deal with and who knows, I may rejoin the Pentax family again. My wish continues to be that their products grow and prosper.

Best regards,
PW




I’m bailing. I love Pentax and the system is great as far as it goes but I’ve recently gone to a dual platform approach due to the lack of super-telephoto lenses for Pentax.

I went with the Nikon D300 and the Sigma 300-800 plus the Nikkor 16-85, 70-200 f/2.8, 200-400 f/4 and the 24mm PC-E. With my K20D and glass, I’ve had the best of both worlds for the last two months but now that Nikon is launching a mid-priced FX with the D700, the handwriting is on the wall. I really want FX/DX flexibility and two cameras that will take all my glass so…I’m offering up my entire Pentax system, in pieces or in total, to the group here first before taking it out to eBay buyers and camera retailers.

All equipment is in MINT condition and comes with original boxes, manuals, lens hoods and caps, cases (if originally supplied) and I am pricing it all to move, as I’m looking to buy the D700 and a couple of FX compatible wide angle/macro lenses ASAP.

The glass has no scratches of any kind and everything is 4-10 months old. I have no problem taking something back if you find a defect but I am certain you won’t as again, it’s all sparsely used and in excellent+ condition.

I’ve really enjoyed these forums since joining the Pentax family last November and have learned a lot from many of you. Therefore, I am leaving this post in the forum exclusively, for 10 DAYS. After that, I’ll be exploring eBay and other avenues to sell whatever is remaining. I truly hope that Pentax will, over time, increase their excellent line of glass and maybe introduce an FX camera down the road. However, my photography needs are moving too fast to wait and so, as I stated above…I’m bailing.

Items For Sale:

K20D + RRS L Bracket + Pentax Extra Battery (and charger). SOLD

Hakuba SDHC card cases + two (2) card readers. Each case has eight (8) 4 GB SanDisk SDHC cards in it. - SOLD

Pentax 12-24mm + Hoya UV and Hoya Pro Circular Polarizer - $625 SOLD

Pentax 10-17mm Fisheye - $325 SOLD

Pentax 18-250 + Hoya Pro UV and Hoya Pro Circular Polarizer - $450 SOLD

Pentax FA 31mm Ltd. + B+W UV Filter - $725 SOLD

Pentax 100mm Macro + B+W UV Filter SOLD

Sigma 50-500mm + Heliopan Slim Circular Polarizer - $895 SOLD

I have a verified PayPal account or will accept a money order or personal check. If paying with the latter, it must clear before I ship it to you. I will ship everything USPS insured with tracking and depending on the item(s) provide you with an estimate on shipping costs. I don’t want to profit on shipping, just cover my costs and postage.

Please send me a PM if you have any questions and if you would like to discuss any of the items over the telephone, leave me your number and a good time to contact you, as I would be happy to call. PLEASE, serious inquiries only. I’m the General Manager of a busy restaurant in Naples Florida and as such am…well…busy!

Thank you for your time and interest, and best wishes to everyone on their photographic journeys!

Phil Weber

No Battery Grip? Hmmm bummer. Figures that someone would do this right after I bought my K20D.

Sorry I missed you!

It all went quickly except the camera and macro. I have two people interested in each but so far, no one has committed. Given the price of SDHC cards, I am surprised they're still for sale!

Best regards,
Phil

Probably because 8 for $100 is cheap, but $100 isn't always a cheap investment for some. If you consider selling seperately, I (and others) might have some interest.
