Interesting little aside. One wonders why the disposal of the FA lenses (one in need of repair, admittedly), if it's just a "new model" and just "for testing". Still, I can't think of a better city to test out a new Pentax (presumably MF) body, than Paris (or Venice, or Florence, or Prague...)

I didn't know Pentax had a sponsored photographer in Montréal (Laval, Qc) !
And maybe this sponsored photographer will have the (new model) K-1 to "test" ?
Funny this is an urgent sale ad ... !
Great price though.

The red flag for me on this listing is the Pentax AF 200FG flash included in the sale. Why would a sponsored photographer even have a cheap, crappy flash like that?

And even if they did, why would they include it with a 645Z?!

seller says "PENTAX telephoto zoom lens FA645 45-85mm F4.5" -- really?! a "sponored photographer for Pentax so I am just changing it as they are sending me a new model to test" says 45-85 a tele-zoom?
seller does not know what he/she is saying, and apparently knows nothing about the camera. A newer model after Z?
I wonder how did the seller get the camera.
