Yea, I just noticed that recently myself. Looks like with insurance, Express Mail is $46.65. So, for just a buck or two difference, yea, it makes way more sense. :-)

USPS Priority International is $45 for every country I've looked up so far (It's "flat rate", but you never know if there's some exception, I guess) plus I think $5 or so for insurance. The calculator on their website is down at the moment so I can't give you a more exact number. :-P

If you're interested in UPS or FedEx, please PM me with country/city/postal code.

Thanks!

Hehe, yea, I'd forgotten about that. :-) For everyone else's benefit, I _was_ planning on buying the 35mm Ltd while the 28mm was in for service, then selling the freshly adjusted 28mm when I got it back. The 28mm came back the day I was looking at the 35mm Ltd, though - and after adjustment it was just too good to part with, so no sale. Really good timing or really bad, depending on who you ask...

FWIW, though, I think the 35mm Ltd sold not long after anyway. ;-)

Thanks! And I couldn't agree more - if I weren't switching away from Pentax (I know, boo, hiss) you'd have to pry this lens out of my cold dead fingers... :-)

Item for Sale
Kenko AF 2x Teleplus MC7 DG Teleconverter for Pentax

Asking Price
$100 USD

Item Location
Seattle, WA

Item Description
Autofocus teleconverter for Pentax K-mount. Provides 2.0x magnification (a 200m lens becomes a 400mm lens.) 7-element design provides sharper and cleaner results than 4-element teleconverters. Works beautifully with my Tamron 70-200 F2.8 (also for sale) and should also work with any screw-drive AF K-mount lens. Has power terminals, but I don't know whether AF works with SDM lenses.

Works great with the Tamron SP AF70-200mm F/2.8 Di LD IF MACRO (which I'm also selling) and can be stacked with the Promaster 1.7x teleconverter (which I'm also selling.)

Asking $100. Will discount if you want to combine with the other gear I'm selling.

Item for Sale
Tamron SP AF70-200mm F/2.8 Di LD IF MACRO

Asking Price
$650

Item Location
Seattle, WA

Item Description
Fantastically sharp fast telephoto zoom lens. It's sharp even at F2.8 and just gets better as you stop it down. Check out the test results at dpreview. (Interestingly, the only real negative in that review is about the built-in motor on the Canon version. In the Pentax version, the lens simply uses the screw-drive motor in the camera body, which has been fast and accurate on my K10D.) I had a chance to compare this lens side-by-side to Pentax's 60-250mm F4, and the Tamron beat it hands-down in every area. It's a whole stop faster, it's sharper at F4, and focus (while a little louder) was faster and more accurate in any lighting.

Check out some examples of the photos I've taken with this lens on my K10D.

This lens is practically new (only a few months old) and includes everything you'd get buying it new - front and rear caps, hood, removable tripod collar, padded case, original box and papers.

I am the original owner of this particular lens and I baby all my gear. Optics are clean and clear, mechanicals and electronics all work perfectly. Selling because I got a nice bonus at work and splurged on a full-frame Nikon DSLR. (I'm also selling my other lenses - see my other listings. The 1.7x teleconverter works great with this lens.)

Asking $650. Will discount if you want to combine with another of my lenses for sale.

Item for Sale
SMC Pentax FA 77mm F1.8 Limited

Asking Price
$700 USD

Item Location
Seattle, WA

Item Description
One of Pentax's famous FA Limiteds, this lens is sharp, fast, and has beautiful bokeh. Great for portraits. It's also unbelievably compact, and built like a tank. Built-in lens hood. Includes original front and rear caps, as well as a B+W 49mm UV filter ($50 value.) The original pressure-fit cap doesn't work well with the UV filter, so I'm also including a pinch-type Pentax 49mm cap. Includes original soft pouch, original box, and manuals. This is the (superior) "made in Japan" version.

I am not the original owner of this particular lens, but I'm picky about my gear and I baby it. There's very slight cosmetic wear on the exterior - wear on the paint around the focus ring and aperture ring. Optics are clean and clear, mechanicals and electronics all work perfectly. Selling because I got a nice bonus at work and splurged on a full-frame Nikon DSLR. (I'm also selling my other lenses - see my other listings.)

Asking $700. Will discount if you want to combine with another of my lenses for sale.

Item for Sale
Sigma 28mm F1.8 EX DG ASP Macro

Asking Price
$275 USD

Item Location
Seattle, WA

Item Description
Sigma's product page

Beautiful wide-angle fast prime lens for Pentax K-mount. Fast aperature is great for working with available light, and for throwing the background into beautiful defocus while keeping your subject sharp. 28mm is a 42mm-equivalent on a Pentax APS-C body - a little wider than the classic 50mm, making for a very versatile prime lens. Macro focusing allows you to get as close to your subject as you like.

Here's a few examples of photos I've taken with this lens on my K10D.

Includes original front and rear caps, hood, and also a third-party front cap that's easier to use when the hood is in place. Also includes padded case and original papers.

I'm the original owner, and I baby my gear. Optics are clean and clear, mechanicals and electronics all work perfectly. The lens did initially suffer from slight backfocus (not uncommon on big-aperture lenses) but I had Sigma service it and focus has been perfect ever since. (Literally better than new!) Selling because I got a nice bonus at work and splurged on a full-frame Nikon DSLR. (I'm also selling my other lenses - see my other listings.)

Asking $275. Will discount if you want to combine with another of my lenses for sale.

Item for Sale
Pentax K10D DSLR + Complete Package

Asking Price
$900 USD

Item Location

Item Description
Great camera, and it's given me great results.

Package includes:
  • Pentax K10D digital SLR camera body

  • Sigma 17-70mm F2.8-4.5 DC Macro standard zoom lens - This is an amazing lens.* It's sharp across the board (sharper than the 17-50 F2.8s I've compared it to), it's fast (F2.8 at the wide end, and only a stop and a quarter slower at the long end), it's versatile - wide angle to portraits to macro photography.* The best APS-C standard zoom money can buy (IMHO.)* I'll also include a 72mm UV/protective filter, and a step-up ring that lets you use 77mm filters as well.

  • Sigma 70-300mm F4-5.6 APO DG Macro telephoto zoom lens - Also sharp and versatile, this is a great lens for getting that reach beyond 70mm.* Also great for macro work.* Includes 58mm UV/protective filter and padded case.

  • Pentax AF360FGZ flash

  • LowePro SlingShot 100 AW camera bag - works like a backpack, but gives you the convenient access of a sling.* Built-in rain cover.

  • Pentax Remote Control F infrared remote

  • Wired remote with timer/intervalometer

  • 16GB Class 6 SDHC memory card - fast, and holds almost 1,000 shots in RAW

  • 2 Batteries + Charger

  • Original cables, manuals, covers, etc.


Check out some examples of the pictures I've taken with this camera and the 17-70mm, and the 70-300mm.

I'm the original owner of all items, and I baby my gear. Everything's in top shape - optics are clean and clear, and everything works perfectly. Selling because I got a nice bonus at work and splurged on a full-frame Nikon DSLR. (I'm also selling several other lenses - see my other listings.)

Asking $1,000. Will discount if you want to combine with the other gear I'm selling.

I've been asked about splitting the package. Here's my thoughts on that:
  • I would be willing to sell the 70-300mm separately for $175.

  • I would be willing to sell the AF360FGZ flash separately for $150.

  • I would be willing to sell the K10D body, remotes, memory card, batteries, and misc. for $325

  • I would be willing to sell the 17-70mm for $400 - but only after selling the body.

Is K5 really only 11 AF points ?

Not true. If you have a lens with a flat focus plane and a normal to wide focal length, then the distance to the focal plane in the center is different than the distance to the focal plane nearer the edge of the frame. With, say, a 28mm at F1.8 or F2.4, if you do the focus-on-the-center-then-recompose thing, you're basically guaranteeing that your shot will be back-focused.

Price reduced.

Also, in case you were wondering, on the manual through the lens where it looks like it says "MF ZOOM", note in the other picture where the manual says "AF-MF ZOOM LENS". It is indeed an AF lens. :-)
