Item Description
I bought a second K10D as part of a package, but my wife and I decided we just can't afford to keep a backup at this time. I'd REALLY like to keep that Tamron lens, but that has to go, too. *SIGH* I have used all these items myself, and found everything to work very well, though I am relatively new to DSLRs, so can't say I am an expert by any means. I am doing my best to grade this stuff conservatively and to the best of my knowledge!

I am new to and have no feedback here; however, I have perfect feedback of well over 400 on eBay, id = gimmepizza (just like here). Feel free to contact me via eBay and I'll confirm from that email that it's me. :-)

Further details as follows:

K10D: To me, looks basically new and functions perfectly as far as I can tell. I'd have marked it "Like New" but since I am not the original owner and it has 4948 clicks on it, I thought I'd better stick with "Excellent".

18-55 Pentax lens: The lens looks NEARLY new. The one exception that I noticed, and the reason I had to mark this lens as "poor" condition (see
condition key), is one very small bright spot (reflects light more when shone on it) on the very outer edge of the front glass surface, which might be a fleck missing from the coating. I have read elsewhere that these spots may just be contamination that can be washed off gently; however, I am worried I'd damage the lens more if I do this, so I am simply taking some off the price and will sell it as-is. I have noticed no problems with image quality, though I do not really "pixel peep" the images I take. See the close-up of the lens below -- the "bright spot" is next to the "55" written on the ring around the outer element. One other thing I must disclose is that, when examining the lens very carefully, I did notice a very little stickiness in the zoom mechanism toward the wide end. I never noticed it in actual use, but it could possibly be an issue to you.

18-250 Tamron lens: This lens looks brand new to me, though as noted earlier, I am not a seasoned expert. So I list it as "Like New" rather than "Mint". I was surprised that the manual focus ring has a "gritty" feel/sound to it, but read that this is normal with this lens, even brand new.

Tamrac camera bag: Complete with all velcro-adjustable pads and straps, looks like new to me. I decided to just make due with another, cheaper bag I have.

Are you the original owner of the item being sold?

Bump for lowered prices AND Tamrac Velocity 8x bag, like new, added to list of items for sale.
Oh, and will ship anywhere I can track shipments; let me know where you are, including address or zip code, for me to figure that out.
