If you are serious about getting one this is cheap on the world market.

EDIT It had a buy now of $30. But someone obviously thinks he can get a better deal and started the bidding at $1.
It went for $68. Did not pan out for the person who thought they could do better than $30 but still someone made an incredible bargain.

Does anyone still have medium format film aspirations? This Pentax 645 film kit with five lenses is currently available for $1950 (according to a Facepalm post).


P.S.: As this is about legacy gear in a severely restricted market, I hope the post doesn't violate forum rules. I'm most certainly not the seller.

Looks like a pretty damn nice kit, but in reality its probably a little steep for here in NZ, especially as it only has one insert for film

Yes, no problem. If you posted links to your own TM auctions, that could fall foul of the rules, but posting links to other auctions - no problem.

A nice 50mm macro in there. And a 20mm. I've never seen a 20mm.

Yes! But my wife may be less understanding as I've just spent $306 on a battery grip for said camera.

Ive seen one FA 20mm before in 17 years of selling Pentax... They are quite the funky focal length, 30mm equiv on APS-C

Yes, quite tempting. A fast 20 would be quite nice. I'm not sure if my wife will let my buy any more lenses at the moment though as I just bought a Sigma 10-20 on TM.
Not overly fast or necessarily the best in it's focal range, but still a reasonable lens at a reasonable price that means I finally have something in the ultra-wide range.

Bugger, I got those
Somebody passed up a buy-now of $30??? (wasn't me).
I'm still pretty happy with $68, the glass is unmarked and they posted to Nelson for $7. I gave my son my as-new K-r and wanted a 55-300 for him so the 18-55's a spare now.
