I will post sale in ebay for ms-cashback for interested party, roughly after 20% cash back, the item is about $350 net cost after 20% rebate. Net cost includes shipping and insurance with USPS priority and minus ebay fee.

If there is another buyers familiar with the cashback system, please PM as a 2nd candidate. But 1st position is yielded to zorobabel. I will honor contingent buyers in order that won't jeopardize the sale activity. No waiting is granted at the current moment.

Yeah I prefer the black ones, too. I would have preferred a black FA*85, too. But that one does not exist. So now I am stuck with my first silver lens ever. And I may fall in love.........


or maybe I am ....


falling already

The MS live.com cashback in ebay bin drops from 20% on Wednesday to 15% on yesterday and today. I suspect it may be going downhill at certain point. I don't want to raise another rumor but I don't see the logic in waiting for it to go back to 30%. I have the potential buyer for my K10D wanting to buy it only when it gets back to 30%. I will always welcome the wait with wishful thinking that it will ever go back to 30%.

My K10D is still available for the same low price, with 15% and ebay fee, roughly $370 shipped after 15% cashback.

Sold Items
  • Pentax FA 31mm f/1.8 limited $660 (shipped)
  • Pentax A 51 f/1.7 $60 (shipped)
  • Kenko 2x Macro Teleplus $70 (shipped)
  • Tamron SP 17-50 f/2.8 Di II $300 (to-be-shipped)

Available for Sale

Interested inthe 31mm. PM sent.
zzbao (or Haitao) is one of my most loyal buyers. I don't know how to thank him for the time he walks me through the ebay steps to get his cashback, I think it may have gone south to 15%, in which I have no control. I am grateful to his information, and I hope his kids enjoy the little gifts that I have found in my household for the "Lady Queen" cushion mixed with the usual bubble wrap and others while in delivery.






Thank you Haitao and I will PM him next, tracking# is in paypal invoice

Hin

I can't believe you sold the Tammy 17-50.... I hope you at least pick up a 150-500 Sigma for that D90...
Good Luck.

The Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8 is a very good lens and it is on its way to Jasvox when the eCheck is cleared. The lens is closest in IQ to my trusted Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8. I am sure if I keep it longer, it will go long in my bag like the Tamron 28-75. I changed mine often and I get tempted to try out Sigma 17-70 f/2.8-4.5 for a cheaper price. Sure that overlap with Tamron 28-75 but I love overlapping for a reason -- less lens change. If I focus on portrait such as photog, wedding, and tomorrow's photg job in my older boy school for Christmas Breakfast with Early Santa, I take my trusty Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 and for weekend trip that needs a wider view, I take Sigma 17-70 f/2.8-4.5 which provides me a wider view and a good macro for daytime. Sure they overlap but I pick my zoom based on task with wider view versus portrait needs. Hence the change from Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8 to Sigma 17-70 f/2.8-4.5 -- my lame LBA excuse

Prices Lowered

QuoteQuote:
My buyer of FA 31mm, zzbao or Haitao, sent me an PM that he got his 31mm limited and that he got 20% MS live.com search cashback on last Thursday and as of Sunday, the cashback was down to 8% which is not worth to consider as the ebay fee can cut the 8% to about 2% gain, not worth considering all the troubles. I hope the cashback can be higher before xmas. Any reasonable offer will not be turned away.

If you are interested in K10D or the magical Pentax F-1.7x AF TC, please PM me. My K10D is about 5100 actuations and the body is found with tack focus with limited lens tested with 21, 31, 77, DA* zoom, and works extremely well with zooms in Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 and all lens that I have used this year.
In lure of Ms live cash back being down to 8%, I am lowering down the price for both items in this thread

1. Pentax K10D is lowered from $395 to $375

Please note that my K10D is in perfectly good shape. Actuations is about 5180, I would not sell it had I not thought of a 2nd system in another brand. And my copy is sharp in focus with all prime and zoom lens in 21, 31, 77, 50, 90, 28-75, 50-200, 70-300, 105, 19-35 with Pentax, Tamron, Sigma and Tokina

Summary of K10D:
  • actuations at 5213
  • -
  • no scratches and marks
  • -
  • fully functional and the best is that focus is sharp on Pentax, Tamron, Sigma and Tokina primes and zooms lens that I have used. My main workhorse zoom lens are in Tokina 19-35mm, Tamron 28-75mm, Tamron 70-300mm and all are sharp. Prime lens in 21, 31, 50, 77, 90, 105 are all without focus issues
  • -
  • I am not aware of any banding in iso shooting in 400 and 800.
  • -
  • all original accessories and original box


4. Pentax F-1.7x AF TC is lowered from $350 to $325

This is a magical TC not to be missed. it can turn my 200mm MF prime to a 340mm prime with partial AF. Very magical to say the least. And IQ is the best in all TC that I have tested with Tamron 1.4x and Promaster 1.7x, the IQ is best in this Pentax TC followed by Tamron and then Promaster.
