Pentax Sell-off Cont...

Hi, I've made a partial switch to mirrorless so I'm selling most of my gear. I've described each item in detail. Throw in $10 and I'll cover the remaining cost of shipping(within U.S.), insurance and Paypal fee. I will ship USPS worldwide to Paypal-verified users and addresses only. Signature required at delivery. Return policy within 3 days if not as described.


1) Pentax K-5 II + Pentax Battery Grip D-BG4 including AA battery insert. The camera is in mint condition with shutter count little over 8000. The battery grip is in very good condition with one caveat the front selection wheel(below the shutter) works only clock-wise. So if you want to scroll through your photos or adjust shutter speed you can go right but not left. It usually doesn't bother me, I found a work around by using the directional pad. Bottom of grip has two light scratches near the mount. Includes original box, battery, charger, cords, camera strap, manual. It also comes with Wasabi Power wall charger with car plug adapter and two 2300mAh Wasabi batteries. Includes a GGS brand screen protector installed on lcd. $335


2) SMC Pentax-FA f2.8 50mm Macro lens in very good condition with clean and clear glass, snappy aperture blades, with Pentax front and rear lens caps and a black Pentax pouch. FA 50 macro is known for its sharpness and this copy is no exception. If it wasn't for an accidental stow in a camera bag with other equipment without dividers oversight I'd list this lens in like new condition. But since it did get a scratch near the scale window and some paint rubbed off at the base(near mount) it's listed as very good condition. You don't find too many of these nowadays. SOLD


3) SMC Pentax-DA f4 16-45mm ED AL lens. I'm the original owner and this was my workhorse of a lens. Used most often and with very pleasing results. Optics are still clean and clear. It's a seven year old lens and I've taken very good care of it but on one occasion it rubbed off some paint in two small spots near the 45mm scale(I think it might've rubbed against the FA50 Macro when I was in a hurry and did not have the time to put it in a separate compartment) and one faint scratch on bottom of lens near the focus ring. Otherwise I'd rate this lens like new. Comes with original caps, Pentax hood and original box. I'm including an AGFAPHOTO Multi-Coated CPL 67mm filter. SOLD


4) Sigma DC 8-16mm f4.5-5.6 HSM. Another sought after lens in Pentax mount. This is my favorite lens for creative photography especially at the ultra wide angle. Inside the barrel you can see few tiny black particles when you look at the light and one small black particle on the outer rim(nothing affects IQ). Otherwise it's in mint condition. Comes with Sigma front/rear lens caps. SOLD


5) Sigma DC EX 50-150mm f2.8 II APO HSM. This is a beauty of a lens albeit a bit on a heavy side but what would you expect for a lens in this range at a constant 2.8 aperture. Sharp wide open gets super sharp stopped down. Photos come out amazing. I bought this lens refurbished and had it calibrated by Sigma. I used it on my K-30 and K-5 II and it works spot on. Comes with front/rear Sigma caps, lens hood, Sigma padded black case, case strap, original box, instructions. Hood and body show some light scuff marks(mostly on the hood). There are a few dust particles inside the lens, one small synthetic fiber and one .5mm spec near edge of middle front element(nothing affects IQ). Other than these minor issues the lens is in like new condition. Withdrawn


6) Sigma EX DG HSM 50mm f1.4. This is my favorite AF portrait lens. Wonderful low light performer with very shallow DOF and beautiful image rendering. The lens is in like new to mint condition except for few light scuff marks on the hood. Includes Sigma tulip hood, front/rear lens caps and Sigma padded case. I'm including a 77mm Hoya HMC UV(c) filter. It's very hard to find this lens for Pentax mount anymore especially in this condition. Withdrawn


7) Sigma 30mm F1.4 EX DC - This is another amazing lens. The EX is sharper than the new 30/1.4 Art in the center and is known for creating that amazing 3D pop that even FA Limiteds can't match. I bought it used two years ago, it's in like new condition with only one tiny spot of golden trim peeling off but in tact otherwise the lens is in perfect working order, with clean and clear glass. Focuses perfectly and needs no adjustments on my K5II. Includes tulip hood, lens caps and Sigma padded case. BONUS: I'm including a 62mm Hoya HMC UV filter(Made In Japan). SOLD.

8) Spyder LENSCAL by Datacolor. This is for checking/calibrating your lenses. It has a tripod mount and a bubble level. It's in excellent condition with only several scuff marks. Original box with instructions. SOLD


9) Rokinon 85mm f1.4 Aspherical IF. Another fantastic manual portrait lens. I bought it brand new over three years ago and it's still in like new condition minus the dust. I don't know how it got there but there are some dust particles inside the barrel. Nothing affects IQ. The hood has few very small indents/scratches on it close to the mount. Comes with front/rear lens caps, lens hood and original box. Also included is a slim Rokinon MC Super 72mm UV filter. SOLD.


10) Pentax O-ME53 Viewfinder Loupe Magnifying Eyecup for Pentax camera - mint condition. Comes in original box. Great little accessory if you like extra viewfinder magnification. SOLD


11) SEAGULL Angle Finder. Right angle viewfinder eyepiece with 1X to 2.5X magnification. Comes with five adapters: Pentax, Leica, Nikon, EOS(A) and EOS(B). In like new condition except for very light scratches on eyepiece lens(does not affect IQ). Comes with Seagull black soft pouch. SOLD


12) I removed GPS unit from the sale as per PF guidelines and will sell it on ebay instead.


Discount for buying multiple items. Let me know if you'd like me to send you detailed photos of a particular item.

Future congratulations on whoever picks up the Sigma 50-150... silent, accurate and reliable focus, and on par with the DA* 50-135 optically. It's a trade off... you lose WR for silent AF done right.

And no SDM failure. Very rarely does that happen on Sigma.

If I haven't been tempted to partially move to m43 I would have gotten that 8-16.

Good luck with the sale!

I've injured both of my shoulders while serving in the military and it's catching up with me more and more. That's why the switch to M4/3 to lighten up my gear as much as possible. HUA.

I couldn't hold a heavy setup while also carrying my two toddlers. At least now I can carry them but they can hold my OMD for me when framing for a shoot!

For anyone on the fence, the FA 50 macro is a pretty great lens!

Free bump! I would be more interested in the 50mm macro, but I just found a really good deal on a Tamron 90mm on ebay, so I'm fine for a while.

Here's what a good macro lens can do:
