K5iis w/Grip, DA* 16-50, DA*50-135 (Issues with all 3, see within)

50-135, D-BG4, and the K-5iis are SOLD.

So my DA Star workhorses and K-5iis have served me well, but it is time for me to let them go to somewhere else hopefully useful. Pictures follow.

This camera and lenses have served me quite well through 3 years, and 3 Burning Mans (just two BMs for the lenses though). That said, all 3 have developed some issues, so I am letting each piece go for a discount:

K-5iis ($300) (SOLD) Good visually, but damaged: The popup flash no longer fires, though the hotshoe works fine. Shutter count: 11412. 1 D-LI90 charger (pentax original), and D-LI90 equivalent battery (Wasabi Power BTR-DLI90-JWP) will be included. Early in the life of this camera, I also damaged the hotshoe mount, sent the camera into CRIS to repair the hotshoe. It's worked like a charm in the two years since.

D-BG4 ($100) (SOLD) for the K5iis, with both the D-LI90, and AA battery holders.

DA* 16-50 ($350). Glass is in like new condition, but SDM failed. I hacked the lens ROM to have the camera use the screwdrive focus.
DA* 50-135 ($350) (SOLD). Glass is also in like new condition, but SDM has failed. I also hacked the lens ROM on this lens to have the camera use screwdrive.

If someone wants to buy all 4 of these in one go, I'll also throw in a AF-200FG flash to replace the nonworking popup on the K-5, and the S90-160 and S120-150 softcases for the DA Star lenses.

I am the original owner of all of the above, a sale will include a lenstag transfer url as well.

For payment, I expect Paypal, and I will ship via Fedex Ground, UPS Ground, or USPS Priority Mail, at your choice. I currently live in the San Francisco area, if you wish to pay cash and/or come pick up any of the above, I can meet in public place.

I also don't mind parting out the above to multiple buyers, but no freebies then!
