[SOLD] A ton of Pentax gear

Sadly, I need to unload most of my Pentax gear. Take this opportunity to pre-spend your tax check :-)

K20D with KatzEye focus screen Awaiting Payment
It is hard to tell this camera has been used. I had some problems with manual focus but I ordered and installed a thinner shim and it focuses great now. The KatzEye focus screen includes the original Pentax screen markings. About 13,000 actuations. Comes with box and all original accessories including an 8GB SDHC Class 6 card.

BG-2 Grip Sold
Fantastic condition, comes with Pentax wireless remote (inside)

-=| Zooms |=-
DA 12-24/f4 Sold
The lens hardly looks used, comes with hood, front and rear caps.

DA* 16-50mm f/2.8 $500USD
Although I am the lenses second owner, it looks almost brand new. Comes with hood, front and rear caps along with soft case. No focus problems here!

DA* 50-135mm f/2.8 $650USD
This has always been my favorite lens. It's hard to tell this has been used, comes with hood, front and rear caps along with soft case.

Sigma 100-300mm f/4 $900USD
A brilliant lens, even with a 1.4x TC on it, this lens will amaze you. Again, hard to tell it's been used, comes with hood, front and rear caps along with soft case.

Pentax 55-300 Withdrawn
As much as I feel like a heel for doing so, I'm afraid I have to withdraw this lens to keep from incurring the-wrath-of-the-wife. I've recently converted her to Pentax and she's aghast that I'd consider selling the only lens she can use for birds in the park. My apologies to all who were interested.

-=| Primes |=-
Vivitar 24mm f/2.8 $40USD
An older lens, but in fantastic condition. Comes with front and rear caps.

K 50mm f/1.2 $300USD
Great shape, no dings on the body and the glass is immaculate. The rubber grip on the focus ring can sometimes slip a small amount though. Fantastic lens, but you'll have to get used to focusing with such narrow depth of field. Includes front and rear caps.

Vivitar 50mm f/1.7 $50USD
Great shape, glass is fantastic, includes front and rear caps.

DA* 55mm f/1.4 Awaiting Payment
What can I say, I love this lens, I'll be sad to see it go. You will love how sharp and contrasty this lens is wide open. Includes original box, hood, front and rear caps along with soft case.

FA 77mm f/1.8 $560USD
A brilliant lens, needs little introduction, you'll be hard pressed to tell this lens was used. Includes front and rear caps.

Tamron 1.4x TC Sold
This is the most recent one sold by Tamron, very good IQ with all the lenses I've tried it with and included contacts so SDM continues working. Hard to tell it's been used, comes with front and rear caps.

I'm not leaving entirely, I'll keep a couple of lenses and my K100D. Plus I've already committed to attend the Toronto Pentax Users Meetup next Sunday :-)
All PMs replied. Two people hunting for the 12-24, 3 for the 55-300 and one for the 24mm (just so ya'll know where you stand).

I've had the pleasure of meeting up with Don a few times, and he does not exaggerate about how well he looks after his gear! It's all immaculate!

Good luck, Don!

Is the K 50mm f/1.2 the best f/1.2 lens for the K-Mount.

Luna, there are three f/1.2 lenses that I know of, the Pentax K, the Pentax A and the Cosina 55mm. Having seen pictures from all three, I can't recommend one over the other really. All of them seem to have buttery backgrounds. I am a bit of a purist and wanted a Pentax lens, but didn't want to pay the extra premium of having an A lens :-)
Cheers, Don
