[SOLD] K20D, flashes, Minolta X-700, Tamron 80-210mm/3.8, Camera Bags

Selling my just acquired K20D (don't need all the features, will be better off with K-x high-iso+fps), as well as some other stuff lying around my place.

K20D - LN+ - $575 - PENDING
Looks and works as new, would describe as mint (as in almost new, with box and all original accessories) if it was not purchased from BestBuy as refurbished. It came to me pristine, shutter count only 200. At the moment, it's 1700 - so any defects would have shown by now. There's a speculation about how those "refurbished" bodies are simply new, but Pentax refuses to drop prices on new units or whatever...
I'm throwing in some accessories to add to the box of K20D stuff:
1) a Chinese vertical grip (the one with all the buttons and metal nubs to hold the grip steady on the body, as well as a tray to hold extra battery, and card+remote storage)
2) a Chinese split-screen focusing screen (apparently from a minolta X-700). I spent a lot of time calibrating this one - so it works perfectly, even the microprism collar. Cons? Accuracy came at a price of some scratches on the screen.
3) Original spare battery.
4) a Dane-Elec 8gb SD card

2) Metz Mecablitz 32CT3 - BGN - $20 - SOLD
A flash with "auto" mode (sensor on flash). GN100 at ISO100, comes with swivel and tilt, and flash mount can supposedly be changed - but I haven't figured out how yet.
There are a lot of tiny scratches on the body, and a blemish on top cover (see pic). There also seems to be some dust under the lights on the back. None of these have effect on flash function.

Safe to use on Pentax DSLRs - trigger voltage of ~15v (for Pentax, max is 25v). So yeah, don't lend it to your Canon friend, or he'll hate you for years to come

3) Vivitar 285HV - BGN - $30 - SOLD
The little plate with aperture calculations fell off and isn't there anymore... Other than that, it seems to work perfectly - vari-power works, flash tilts and zooms. Kinda flimsy, but it does all that!
Some wear around the body - BGN condition. Comes with two batt. compartments and a 28mm diffuser

4) Minolta X-700 w/ Vivitar 135/2.8 (Komine) - VG - $35 - SOLD
The camera has quite a history. Bought a package deal from a guy on ebay for a Tamron adaptall lens, and it came with this camera. At the time, I thought it was dead - didn't work with fresh batteries - so I just put it onto my shelf and forgot about it. Later, slapped a Viv135/2.8 on it, from another lot, I think. Just two days ago, I was cleaning up my shelves, and just for the hell of it, looked into the viewfinder - and the meter worked! Miracle, I guess
So, the camera works, A and P modes work, shutter speeds work. Winding is smooth, camera is relatively clean (some dust on the body). I'm also selling another adaptall lens that comes with an Adaptall2->MD adapter.
Note that the bottom of the camera has a protective sticker.

5) Tamron Adaptall-2 80-210/3.8 - EXC - $25 - SOLD
A very, very good consumer zoom, with a relatively large max. aperture. Min focus distance is not too shabby, either.
Lens is in excellent condition! Works as it should, and glass is clean.
Comes with a Minolta MD adapter.

6) Tamrac Bag - EXC - $15
The bag came with above-mentioned X-700. The bag is in excellent condition, and will fit a camera + a long lens. I haven't found any pockets on it though.

7) Lowepro Toploader AW65 + small lens case - VG - $35
A pretty good camera bag, fits a body and two lenses about the size of DA16-45. An extra lens case can be strapped to the bag from the outside, and can fit a 50mm. Nifty! There's some wear on the hip part of the padding - see pic 2.
Other than that, it's in very good condition! It also has 3 pockets (2 in front, one under top lid), as well as a rain cover, and a very wide shoulder strap.

That's all for now. PM me for a shipping quote! If you're in CONUS, it should be about $5-$10.
