Pentax Canada appears to have supplied me with a brand new or very close to brand new lens in very near mint condition as a replacement lens for one that I sent in for warranty repair a couple times. This is not my original faulty lens--this is a replacement right from Pentax as they said that my original was beyond repair.

Included in the sale are the lens, front and rear lens caps, lens hood, soft case, and original lens box with manual. The box is slightly beat up from shipping my old faulty lens to Pentax a couple times.

I am moving away from Pentax as my main system and cannot afford to keep this lens any longer. While living life as a Pentaxian I very much enjoyed shooting with the 16-50mm f/2.8. The SDM motor makes for fast focusing and the f/2.8 is fantastic in low light (I used it during weddings in churches and in dark reception halls). Although this is not my original lens, this one appears to be in mint condition--better shape than the one I sent in for repair! Way to go Pentax!

I have only positive feedback here in the Marketplace and am asking $525 USD which includes shipping to the US or Canada via Canada Post Express Post with a tracking number and shipping insurance. Payment can be made via PayPal with or without a PayPal account (I can send you a money request if you do not have a PayPal account.)

Thanks very much and I hope someone will enjoy this lens!

Item for Sale
SIGMA 18-200mm w/4 filters incl. CP

Item Description
This SIGMA 18-200mm "superzoom" is in great shape. The outside has a used but undamaged look and the glass is pristine (see attached pictures).

Optically, this has been one of my best lenses--spot on with no focus issues. It's a fantastic walk-around lens!

I'm parting with this lens as I am switching much of my gear to another system. There is nothing "wrong" with this lens whatsoever--it's a wonderful copy of this lens.

The lens hood, original box, and manual included.

As well, I'm including the following 4 filters!

- HOYA UV(0) for protection
- HOYA ND4 (neutral density)
- HOYA ND8 (neutral density)
- HOYA Circular Polarizer

These filters have cost me over $110 total in the past year alone. The ND4 and ND8 filters have NEVER been used and the polarizer only once or twice at most!

(Note: I will not split up the filters for individual sale.)

I hope someone will enjoy this lens as much as I have over the past year or so since I bought it!

Thanks.

Item for Sale
K10D with extra Focusing Screens

Item Description
This K10D is in fantastic condition and was recently serviced by Pentax. It was originally back focusing but has had the main logic board serviced and is now spot-on. While in for service it was also professionally cleaned by Pentax.

All original items are in the box including a duplicate receipt for warranty purposes. The Pentax Canada warranty is good for 2 years and has 1 year remaining (camera was purchased on August 3, 2007).

Included are 3 focusing screens: the original Pentax LF-80, a Pentax LL-80, and a Katz Eye split prism with OptiBrite, crosshair, and 8x10 crop marks.

I marked this camera as in Excellent condition and not Like New as each of these 3 focusing screens have some minor scratches. They do not affect the image quality at all--they are strictly cosmetic and all are in perfect operating condition. Otherwise the camera is in Like New condition.

I will ship worldwide but will only include shipping via Canada Post to US and Canada. If you are in another country you may purchase the item at the reduced price ($550) and can pay shipping via your choice of carrier.

Please PM to discuss.

Thanks!

K10D Soft or OOF?
Posted By ksignorini

I know all about festival season in Edmonton!

I bought it at McBain and took it to them. I believe they sent it to Alta Camera in Calgary who then either repairs it or sends it to Pentax Canada. I've now dealt with Alta Camera in Calgary on a couple other occasions and repairs are faster if you send directly to them (you can find their contact info online).

I think it took about 3-4 weeks to get my K10D back, even having gone through McBain first. Unfortunately, Pentax repairs aren't the fastest (you are usually told it will be 6-8 weeks on the outside).

Good luck! Like I said, don't be afraid to contact Alta Camera directly by phone--they will probably give you a timeframe estimate if you ask. I know for fact that McBain sends to them first (saw the whole report from McBain to Alta on another repair).

Mine all looked like that for 6 months too. I sent it in to Pentax and they fixed it. All I said on the report to the repair facility was that it had a considerable back focus problem. After fixing, the images are much sharper. I would even say, "sharp".

I would suggest you send it in. I'm pretty sure that's what you've got going on (back or front).

Lens group replacement repair - DA* lens - thoughts?
Posted By ksignorini
Replies: 8
Views: 3,539
My DA* 50-135 needs a repair. A few months ago I tripped and bumped the lens hood which broke the lens hood thread on the lens itself. Now the hood really doesn't screw in well and especially doesn't screw in well backwards for storage (in fact, it gets jammed sometimes).

Since I have a couple months of no weddings booked (wife is having a baby in the next few weeks) I sent it to the local Pentax repair centre and they've sent it away to Pentax Canada for a repair estimate as it's not something they can repair in-house. They feel it will need to have the front lens group replaced (apparently the part of the barrel that's broken is integral to the front lens group).

I'm just wondering if anyone has any thoughts on this repair? Is it "safe"? Should I trust that the Pentax repair people can even take the lens apart properly? (--A silly worry probably.) Will my lens ever be the same again? Will a new front lens group make a difference to my photos?

Thoughts and suggestions welcome.

(btw: I don't have the repair quote back yet. If the repair costs close to the price of a new lens, then I really have some thinking to do.)

Does it do anything at all? (I can't tell if it's making any difference.)

Also, what ISO = "High ISO"? 1600? 3200? What's the bottom end of "high"?

Understood. And I've bought from Katz Eye in the past, but what I REALLY need right now is not a split prism screen.

I simply want a regular screen, but with 8x10 crop marks. That's all.

Any ideas?
