Haven't been to the pentax booth since 2007, so it was great to get back and check it out again!

Pentax at the Henry's Photo Show in Toronto

Hi Guys,

If you are in the GTA, have the time to check out the Henry's Photo Show, and would like to check out the K-5, K-r and 645D, you have until tomorrow to do so!

I just got back this afternoon and got to try out the K-5 and 645D.

Nothing much new to talk about these cameras - the AF is fast. Liveview AF is a dream to use and subjectively the camera handle just as well, if not better than the K-7.

Couldn't take photos as the hardware was pre-production even though the firmware was showing 1.0.

Pentax reps mentioned K-5 stock is on the way to Canada and should be arriving very soon. No word on colours for the 35 f/2.4 coming to Canada apart from the standard black.

I took some photos of the K-5 with the 645D they had on hand (I wish I had the $10,500 CDN to get one of these..I guess it'd be more as I'd need to get the lens too..)

Photos can be found at the following flickr set link!

http://flickr.com/gp/loafer/D85039

Note: Photos are still uploading slowly... more will be added over the next couple hours.

Asahi Pentax Spotmatic-F + SMC Takumar 50mm f/1.4

Asking Price
$75 US + Shipping + 3% Paypal Fee

Item Description
Follow the link for high res photos -> http://flickr.com/gp/loafer/aM9DA4

Up for sale is a Spotmatic-F with original leather case is GREAT condition and a SMC Takumar 50mm f/1.4 lens.

Spotmatic-F


Good Condition. Some paint loss, dent on prism casing; Scratches on bottom, shutter sounds fine at all speeds, mirror foam is intact but seems to be at the end of its life, door foam seems alright. Overall, the camera seems mechanically fine. Hotshoe works. Lightmeter needs a new battery, but worked last time I replaced it, but cannot guarantee it still works - there is no corrosion in the battery door.

Lens

Lens is also in good condition. The glass is flawless -> front element has no scratches or cleaning marks, minimal dust. Rear element in same condition. No fungus. Comes with original metal front cap.

Mechanically perfect. Focus is silky smooth and aperture very snappy.

The only negative on this lens is the filter ring. It is a bit dented between the "SMC" and "Takumar" on the front of the lens; however, I have had no trouble screwing a filter on the front of the lens. It takes a bit of playing to line it up, but threads on without force.

Camera Case

Excellent condition for its age. Leather is still soft with some wear.

For Sale - Sold: K10D for Parts or Repair

Item for Sale
K10D for Parts or Repair

Asking Price
$110 USD + 3% Paypal Fee

Item Description


Photos can be found at - http://flickr.com/gp/loafer/62drS7


For sale is a K10D for parts or repair. I think the shutter has died on the camera but do not know for sure. I've moved on to a K-7.

The camera fully functions, it turns on, focuses lenses, but will not fire when the shutter is pressed. Instead, it will just whirr for a second without raising the mirror or recording an image. Somehow the aperture lever is linked to this as aperture preview will not activate as well.

The camera has never been dropped and I have posted the story on how the Camera died on my blog which can be found here - Angelo Alaimo Blog Archive R.I.P. K10D – December 4, 2006 -> May 31, 2009

This camera was serviced twice by Pentax Canada. Once to fix the common chip-in-bottom-plate problem and a second time to fix a faulty sensor. The new sensor only has about 3500 clicks on it. Lens mount was replaced too.

DPreview thread regarding this matter - Defective Sensor?: Pentax SLR Talk Forum: Digital Photography Review

USB connection is a bit flaky and im not sure if its the cord or camera but if you jiggle it, it will work.

Light scratches on LCD screen.

Comes with (everything in the pictures but also listed below):

- K10D Body
- DLI50 Battery
- Battery Charger and North American AC cord.
- Original Strap
- A/V Cable
- USB Cable
- Original Box
- Original Manuals
- Grip body cap

Does Not Come with:

- Eyecup. Had the magnifying eyecup and lost the original
- Hotshoe cover
- Software CD
- Paper Documentation (repairs, original receipt). All this is in Ontario right now in my file and I will send it to you in one months time when I return if you remind me.

PH-RBA (FA 35) and PH-RBL (DA 16-45) Lens Hood Filter Access Doors

Asking Price
USD $5 each

Item Description
Found these two guys keeping up some space in my camera bag for too long. These might as well go to someone who has misplaced their filter access doors

The PH-RBA filter access door is from my FA 35's original hood. I am now using a replacement hood bought from BH last year, after the original had been stepped on.

The PH-RBL filter access door is from a DA 16-45 that I no longer own, sold recently (locally). I had slipped on some Ice last winter and had unfortunately cracked the hood, but here is the remaining bit still in good condition. (SOLD)

Hello GerryL,

Thanks for your interest.

You are currently 4th in line if the preceding interested buyers fall through.

:)

Good Luck!

I'll be gone all weekend without internet access, and I'm not sure how well PF will show up on my Blackberry, so I may not be able to respond to subsequent private messages until sunday night.

Item for Sale
Pentax O-ME53 Magnifying Eyecup

Asking Price
$20 US

Item Description
My shooting style has changed, and I no longer enjoy using the magnifying eyecup that I have used since early 2007.

Check out the photos here - http://flickr.com/gp/loafer/vZcM0h - and you can see the condition of the eyepiece itself. Optically, it is perfect.

Physically, there are no tears on the soft rubber part and the only marks I can see are on the front part which can be clearly seen in the photos.

Comes with original box, instructions, and bubble wrap.

For shipping:

USA

USA Air - $8 US
USA Ground - $6.50 US

This will likely be a maximum, but I will calculate your rate based on your location and see if there are any savings.

Canada

It gets a little tricky.. for some reason, its cheaper to send to the states.
You will pay actual shipping charges which will be calculated when you PM me.

I would like to send the item whole in its box, but for this Canada Post tells me it will cost $10.25 US.

Otherwise, I could flatten the box and stick everything into a padded envelope and send it regular post for $5 US, but this will be your choice.

International shipping will be calculated based on your location.

I expect around $10-12 US for europeans.

Local pickup is welcome.
