It has been a while since I was on the forums, but I have had positive transactions on the market place before and I have a 100% perfect eBay rating.

SOLD! > > The first item - A Pentax K-5 BODY ONLY. I have the original box and the shutter count is around 2500. The camera is in perfect working order and is in MINT condition. It comes with the original battery, and charger as well. I am asking 450USD. Reduced to 400USD! < < SOLD!

SOLD! > > The second Item is a DA 15 Limited. This lens is also in perfect working order, MINT condition and has no focus issues. I have the original box, Both front and back caps, and the pouch. Asking 450 USD.< < SOLD!

SOLD! > > The third item is a FA 50 F1.7 - I have both the front and back caps but no box. I bought it used and it has a slight front back focus that can be corrected in the camera software. Great Condition. Asking 230 Reduced to 150.00! I would add that the AF is very good and this is a VERY sharp copy. < < SOLD!

SOLD! > > The final item is my AF-540FGZ flash. This item is in perfect MINT condition. It has never been dropped and is in perfect working order. It comes with the original box, pouch and stand. The stand for the flash, not the flash itself, has a small crack in the back but it does not affect it's ability to stand up. Asking 230 USD. < < SOLD!

Shipping and Handling -
All prices include shipping and insurance for domestic USA USPS mail, buyer pays PayPal Fee's. For domestic shipping, please give me 2 business days to ship the item upon payment.

I will also ship internationally based on a negotiated rate that, you the buyer, will pay in addition to the asking price. I would prefer FedEx is used but all the U.S. Postal Service and UPS are fine as well. It is really up to what you would prefer as far as Cost/Tracking/Speed goes.

The strong yen basically means that any Japanese goods are going to go up in price. Mazda is loosing huge amounts of money from record profits just 3 years ago. Any company that has any major manufacturing in Japan is in big trouble currently.

Oh absolutely. The 50-135 is soft at 135 and the 16-50 has SDM issues and lots of CA's.. So the market drove the price down to something more acceptable. Selling these at 1500 is a joke. We are gonna see MSRP price reductions on these very soon me thinks. Price for the 60-250 is also a bit high at 2 grand as well. But you look at the DA* primes, which are great lenses, the market didn't drive down their costs that much.

WELL frankly the biggest issues here is the near 100% price increases on the da* line of lenses. Particularly the 16-50 and the 50-135.. There is a reason the market drove the prices of these lenses down.. The both have problems that pro grade lenses should not have.

The good news is that for those of us who use primes, glass didn't increase in cost that much.

Frankly, the only way that the electric car will ever take off, is something I figure is universal battery design. Essentially, you buy the car and lease the battery. You pull into what would look like a traditional petrol station, except what happens is the battery, in a 5 min procedure, is switched out and off you go for another 150 to 200 miles. You don't have to worry about your battery ever going bad, and you get the range that allows anyone to drive cross country. You battery switching station or ... BASS lol. Then recharges the batteries and puts them into a different car. Of course you can recharge the battery yourself at your residence or at a parking spot charging station for some extended range.

The battery of course would have to be interchangeable or have maybe 2 to 3 different designs max.

The standard repair cost is 199.00. It could be more or could be less. Pentax has apparently outsourced this to a third party company now and that is all they would say to me.

My order order is from Amazon but not amazon directly. Its "fulfilled by amazon" and is eligible for prime shipping. I am assuming this is not going to cause any warranty issues?

Well considering there is no rumor of the d7000 replacement from Nikon anytime soon, and they are both sourcing the same sensor, it might be far to say that the k-5 won't be replaced anytime soon. I'm going to go ahead and wait a few days to see if the k-mirror less causes any price drops for the k-5

Also can anyone explain to me how to ensure I get that extended warranty?

EXACTLY.

I remember an influential quote. Those who would give up liberty for security deserve neither.

What Ron Paul is saying is already happening. The Al Jazeera journalist Sami al-Haj who spent seven years in gitmo with NO CHARGES. He claims he was tortured as well. Bradley Manning is locked up without charge for showing the world the illegal activities the US was doing.

I don't care what you say, the US gov't executed a US citizen without a trial. If he is guilty of treason, bring him into court and prove it to a jury of his peers. HE IS ENTITLED TO THAT.

Btw assassination is an international war crime.

An article about the internal division of Israel

I mean these Ultra-Orthodox groups refuse to work, their schools only teach the bible, all day, every day. No science. They don't pay taxes, and the refuse to join the military (because they need to reread the bible for the 1000th time). They live off the israeli welfare state that allows them to be able to afford to have 8 to 9 kids without starving. Not paying any taxes, or joining the military, by god they vote!

And its true that in the current coalition, the secular conservatives would have find ~17 votes, I think, in the knesset from a centre party to form a weak coalition if they wanted to kick the orthodox parties out.

You cut back their welfare and end their religious schools, they won't be having 8-9 kids anymore.

Well its mostly for the reason that the christian/totalitarian power structure has always known that in virtually all countries in the OECD that have allowed minorities to serve equally in the armed forces, equal rights almost always follows.

The ban on gay soldiers was lifted in many eurozone countires (the most liberal of the liberal in europe) in the 1980's and equal marriage and adoption rights followed. In 2000, the UK lifted the ban on gay troops (after the european court on human rights said you have to let them serve openly if you want to be in the EU) and now the leader of the conservative party is looking to secure full marriage rights for gay couples by 2015. Currently the UK has marriage in all but name, which also came after the 2000 lifting the bag on gay soldiers.

In the 1950s, the navy did a study that showed that there would be no effect on allowing gay people into the military. The military in the US knew for a long time it didn't really cause a problem. As a matter of fact, if you came out to try and prevent getting deployed, the unsaid policy was to deploy you anyway and discharge you when you got home. If you being out really caused a problem, they would NEVER have deployed you in the first place.

These ultra-orthodox idiots are basically a fast growing parasite that will soon pretty much be a cancer.

I would imagine more secular minded members of society are going to head this off pretty quick and at least cut or reduce state funding to their schools.
