[SOLD] *istDL 28-90mm, 70-210mm, 2GB, Remote

I've been having seller's remorse ever since I listed my K20D. Maybe I should part with this *istDL instead. Most likely I will yank one as soon as the other sells.

Here's what up for sale -

Immaculate Pentax *ist DL with everything that came in the box. The click count is currently under 1,800. No scratches. 100% functional.

Quantaray 28-90mm f/4-5.6 Auto Focus Aspherical lens (Ritz-re-badged Sigma?)
Sigma 70-210mm f/4-5.6 Auto Focus lens
2GB Sandisk Extreme III SD card - Fast 20MB/s card
Pentax F IR Wireless

The glass on both lenses are scratch-free and there are no signs of dust trapped inside. There are some minor scratches/rub marks on the barrel/rings and what you see in the pictures is representative of how the lenses actually look.

Pentax *ist DL + 2GB Sandisk SD + Pentax IR Remote





Quantaray 28-90 f/3.5-5.6



Sigma 70-210 f/4-5.6



Asking $300 for the bunch. Free small, used leatherette camera bag (big enough to accommodate the camera and 3 lenses) in good condition for the asking. That should get anyone started. Not recommended for international buyers since it might increase shipping cost substantially.

Buyer pays actual shipping - USPS Insured Prioirty Mail within the US and USPS Insured Express Mail International outside. Please contact me with your zip code / country for actual shipping costs.

Friendly bump, I have a K100D, K20D, and IST D and the IST still feels the best in my hands and is the smoothest for me to shoot with.

I belive the 28-90 Quantaray is a rebaged Tamron. Its a very nice lens, everytime I shoot with mine PhotoMe see's it as a Tamron 35-90

It's both here and there No reason why it cannot be yanked from there if it sells here.

BTW, I have used this a lot more than my K20D. The size and weight makes it convenient and this particular copy may be the sharpest focusing DSLR that I have owned. Thanks for the bump.

Free bump for a nice LITTLE camera. I had this Pentax, and I still think the "feel and handling" is the best I've tried. I gave it to my daughter - younger and steadier hands.

Groovy

Does this one have the vibration reduction in the body?

Also, how much for body only?

Here are the specs on the camera.

At this point the body is not for sale by itself. Maybe later.

You heard it from tomwil first - my baby is gone and I loved her more than my Sony A200. Thanks all!

The K20D is in a class by itself.
