A friend just handed me his K-50 and showed me it was taking black photos. After a variety of testing, I have determined, using a lens with an aperture ring, that it shoots more or less correct exposures at smallest aperture and then progressive darker shots as the aperture opens up (same EV throughout). So, at f22 it works well enough, but moving down from there to f4 produces darker and darker images even with the shutter speeds adjusting to keep the same EV.

Diagnosis?

Item for Sale
Sigma 70-200mm f2.8 EX APO with caps, original hood & soft case & box

Asking Price
485.00 USD

Item Location
Salisbury, NC (United States)

Item Description
I have owned and used this lens for quite a few years; it has been a workhorse and worth every penny. Not nearly as heavy as the Pentax D-FA 70-200 that I just bought. It is sharp, relatively fast and relatively quiet. Some years ago, I sent the lens to Sigma for a CLA and asked them also to tighten whatever was loose in the barrel. Not only did they do all that, they also quieted the AF and did all the work for free. I am grateful to Sigma for their good work. The lens has the usual scuff and wear marks from use, but it has no dents or serious flaws. The glass is good (the usual light dust). I will miss this lens. It has plenty of good use left in it for its next owner.

Comes with original hood, soft case and box. I have attached a neoprene strap to the case to make it easier to carry. Comes with Sigma back cap and non-original front cap.

Price includes insurance and shipping, if CONUS. PM me if you want it sent elsewhere. Paypal only, please.

See shots of the lens. I will soon add some shots taken with the lens.

My usual return policy (which no buyer has ever needed to take advantage of): you may return the lens (your shipping costs) for any reason within 7 days of receiving it.

In my case the 55mm won't AF at all on my K-1. Button on lens is at AF; camera is set to AF. Using latest firmware. Other lenses autofocus on my K-1....

What gives?

Item for Sale
K-5iis body, D-BG4 battery grip + Chinese L-plate

Asking Price
410.00 USD

Item Location
Salisbury (United States)

Item Description
1) Pentax K-5iis camera body. Used but in good working order. See photos for cosmetics, which are also fine. Now that I have a K-1, one of my K-5iis bodies must help pay for it. This one has always served me well. Shutter count: 13794. Serial number: 4640938 Comes with all accessories from original box, plus the box. Only change is that I cannot find the original eyecup and am therefore including the more expensive O-ME53 magnifying eyecup. Comes with ACMAXX plastic covers over the top display and back monitory.

2) Pentax D-BG4 battery grip. Used but in good working order. See photos for cosmetics, which are also fine. Comes with almost all accessories from original box, plus the box. Only change is that I cannot find the plastic cover for the contacts. (I always kept the grip on the camera and never needed that cover.)

3) Chinese brand L-plate, not dedicated for the K-5iis but works reasonably well. In good condition.

Sold as a package for $410, including shipping if in CONUS. For others, contact me for shipping costs.
Paypal only.

If you are interested or have questions, PM me. But I'll be in and out of town in June and might not be able to provide a prompt reply, so be patient.
