[SOLD] Pentax AF200FG P-TTL Flash =Like New Condition=

I have one Pentax AF200FG P-TTL External Flash Unit for sale.

It is in Like New Condition with original box, pouch, and all original documentation.

The box is a bit beat up looking (because I peeled off the retailer's stickers), but everything else is in perfect like new condition.

It is a P-TTL flash and works great on all modern Pentax DSLR's including the K100D, K110D, K10D, K200D, K20D, K2000D.

This is a basic flash, but it gives you two big advantages over the built in flash:

1. At guide number 20, it is roughly double the strength of the built in flash so if you find your built in flash a bit weak, this should do the trick.

2. It elevates the flash so that you don't get blocked by the hoods of most lenses. The built in flash does not function with the hoods of most wide angle lenses (around 28mm or wide will leave a shadow with the built in flash). Since this flash elevates the location of the light, you avoid that problem completely. This is probably the single biggest flaw of the built in flash since you will most likely be using a wide angle lens indoors and it gets killed by the size of the lens/hood.

This is the smallest of all the Pentax P-TTL flashes, so it is compact and easy to carry, much lighter than the AF360 or AF540. It cycles quickly and is very easy to use. It works great as a compact fill flash inside your gadget bag for outdoor shooting. I know I dread carrying the AF360 around all the time even though it has more features.

Because it is P-TTL, it will allow use of the flash at any aperature. (Unlike Auto-Flashes which limit you to only the settings the flash is designed to operate at.)

It has a built-in pull out diffuser and a beautiful pouch. I have fully tested this flash and it works properly. It has never been outdoors even, (I got a good deal and could not resist although I have several flashes already)

Asking $70 + shipping

This is a great deal considering these usually retail for about $100 and this one is basically new.

Shipping is via USPS First Class Mail. Insurance is optional (for additional fee):

$7 in US
$12 to Canada
Please inquire for international.

I also have some filters and a lens for sale. Shipping is free on the filters if you buy this flash.
