Pentax DA 35/2.4 with rubber hood ($80 shipped)

It's my annual "gear catharsis" and I'm selling my least-used gear to prepare me for the new year. For sale are the following:

Pentax DA 35/2.4 lens, with caps and collapsible Cosina hood: $80 USD shipped
This was my most recent acquisition, but I face a first-world problem of choosing between using this lens or my Sigma 50/2.8 as my go-to lens. The 35/2.4 lost the competition (there's rumor that it won the popular vote, but lost the electoral vote). It needs to go to a new home so I don't face this dilemma on a daily basis. The lens is in good condition, but shows that it was used as an actual photographic tool and not just as a camera bag ornament. It comes with a 49mm collapsible rubber hood (and its box), front cap, and rear slip-on cap. This lens is sharp, but needed +7 AF tuning on my K-3 to be pin-sharp. YMMV.

Again, all reasonable offers will be entertained!!! If you're interested, please don't be shy.

SOLD ITEMS:
Tamron 18-200/3.5-6.3 Xr Di-II 'macro' superzoom lens with Crumpler lens case TRADED for Pentax Q10 kit
This was an acquisition after I took a trip to France carrying only the DA 10-17 fisheye zoom and the DA 50/1.8 (both of which have also been sold). Basically, I felt limited, so I sought out an all-in-one zoom. Unfortunately, I really prefer shooting with a prime and whenever I get in a situation where I really need a zoom, I just end up zooming with my feet - hence, my kit now consists of the Sigma 50/2.8 macro and the Vivitar 7/3.5 fisheye. This lens is in excellent condition, having spent most of its life inside a Crumpler lens case, which will be included with the lens. It comes with a Pentax rear cap, generic front cap, and generic, but perfectly-fitted, JJC hood. The focus lock switch works, and obviously, as common with this lens, there is some looseness with the zoom ring, but zooming is still perfectly usable. I'd say it's more of a slight annoyance versus an issue and the range and optical performance more than make up for it. This lens is sharp when stopped down, but for web images, output is acceptable wide-open. No focus adjustment was needed with this lens.

Crumpler Three Million Dollar Home camera bag WITHDRAWN
I keep coming back to the Crumpler 3MDH for a camera bag - this was my third bag of this vintage. The first bag, I used with a full-size Olympus E-3 and eventually, with a m4/3 kit. The second bag, I used with a Fuji X100s kit, and the third - this one - was used briefly with the Pentax kit. This is a bright red camera bag which won't be mistaken for a camera bag, and is in nearly-new condition. Everything is great and there are no stains or issues with the fabric or velcro, however, our bird at home (green-cheeked conure) got a few bites out of the Crumpler logo - it's a very very minor cosmetic issue, but I'm stating it here for full-disclosure. This bag comes with the divider. I'd continue using this bag, however, I can't fit both the Vivitar 7/3.5 fisheye *and* the Sigma 50/2.8 mounted on the K-3 at the same time...so I ended up making my own bag. This one has to go (I have too many bags as it is, but since this was a great bag for me, it's bound to be great for someone else too. Crumpler no longer makes this bag, and unfortunately, the new Crumpler bags don't appear to be as robust as the bags of this vintage.

Updated. I'm going to regret selling the Crumpler 3MDH, so I decided to withdraw it and keep it.
