K-5/18-55ii bundle, and 2 Alpha-mount Macro lenses

I am selling my beloved and well-used K-5. I purchased this camera back in 2014 from another user on the boards, and it has had some serious adventures since then. Its functionality was greatly enhanced when I bought an O-GPS1, which I have since sold. Unfortunately I realized I need to use gps and flash at the same time, something not convenient with the O-GPS1; a misadventure with a Sony SLT with built-in gps convinced me to spring for the K-3 ii, which means that my K-5 is no longer getting used. I'd rather have it out in the world taking pictures for someone. Note that the GPS mounted on the camera in the photos has sold separately and is no longer available.

This K-5 has become pretty well-worn, as will be displayed in the photos (shot with naked flash to show off all that dust in my house!), but functioning very well. It has a lot of brassing on the bottom plate, and some slight separation of the grip rubber near the front control wheel. If it weren't for my gps needs I'd probably put another few years on this body, like I did with my old K-x.

The 18-55 ii kit lens was purchased used from Adorama within the last year and looks practically as-new to me. I've owned several copies of this lens and this copy has solid image quality.

I would like to sell the lens and camera as a kit if possible, and will take $220 for the two together. Separately I'd ask $180 for the K-5 and $60 for the 18-55 ii, given their relative condition. Really good opportunity for someone to step up to a semipro body on a budget!

Included are charger, battery, cord and body cap for K-5, pinch cap and endcap for the 18-55, and hood with polarizer window.

I also have two very nice lenses for Sony Alpha mount I'd like to offer here before putting them up elsewhere. I was using them on an A55 until it suffered a fatal shutter lockup issue, prompting me to stick with Pentax. First off is the Sony 30mm f2.8 macro, pretty much LNIB from KEH within the last couple months. Great rendering and very convenient small size and low price on any aps-c Sony Alpha DSLR or SLT. Asking $110.

Second is a Tamron 90mm f2.8 macro, which came very clean from a reseller in japan through ebay. This thing is great! I liked it so much I nearly bought a K-mount copy to put on my new K-3 ii, and only changed my mind when a D-FA 100mm popped up in Adorama's used section at a very attractive price. Comes in orginal box with hood, soft case, papers etc. Asking $190.

Please see attached images and inquire for any additional information.

Paypal or cash if local buyer (I'm located in NYC and willing to meet up), shipping paid by buyer through their preferred service. Returns within 15 days if items are not as described.

I've been convinced to split up the kit after all; OGPS-1 has been sold. Will update OP.
