Great find!
I have always been going to garage sales to find any Pentax gear.
I haven't had much luck as all I see being sold are clothes or what nots.
I wish I would be as lucky as you someday..someday..that day will come..I hope!

AF 280T swivels, so if you use auto mode you might find it preferrable to AF 360
Yeah, but I sometimes use the AF360 wirelessly- off camera, and I found a pretty good work around for the swivel issue. I guess it all depends on how one uses their gear as to which they prefer.

I did list the AF280T, and if it doesn't sell, then I'll just keep it.

Played with the AF280T some more- ended the listing. I'll keep both flashes for now.

I never find deals like this, usually cos someone like you beat me to it.

The 50 looks like a good one.

OK, I performed a Ricoh-pin-ectomy on the Sears 70-210mm f4.0 lens, and decided to take a couple of minutes to play with it.

What cha think? Is it worth keeping? I already have the DA18-250mm to cover this range.
