Item for Sale
Pentax DA 35mm f/2.4 AL

Asking Price
140 USD

Item Location
NYC (United States)

Item Description
DA35/2.4:

I have this lens in perfect condition, no scratches, no dust. Fast and sharp. Comes with original box and materials. I wanted to give it to my brother but he has a Tamron 17-50. The lens works very well on K-X and K-30. See pictures below. I don't recall if the rear cap is the original one since I don't have other lenses now.

Just let me know if you want it.

Thanks.

Thanks, Edgar. I only use prime lenses on E-M5 but I heard the rumor that the Oly 50-150 f/2.8 will be out. I will get that instead of Pana 35-100 f/2.8.

Item Description

update: 30/1.4 is sold. Thanks. Now only the K-30 and DA35/2.4 are left.
update: 50-150 IS SOLD. Thanks.

First, I really wanted to keep the Pentax gears but I found that I was using E-M5 more and more, and I have 4 m43 bodies already. I can let the K-30 combo sit in the closet, but just in case someone wants this combo.

There is a reason I want to sell these together. I sent the Sigma 50-150 with K-30 to Sigma for AF adjustment like many others did. If you buy this 50-150 lens separately, I don't know if you can do the adjustment by yourself on your camera if it is out of range. The other Sigma 30/1.4 lens is easy to adjust. There is a little bit difference after I adjusted on K-30 with -3. As I said, I really want to sell these as a whole package.

I am the original owner. K-30 is bought from Pentax Singapore 5 months ago, Sigma 30/1.4 4 months ago from Unique Photo, Sigma 50-150 is from the last batch of Sigma refurbished sale this year which was practically new. I didn't use them much. The shutter count is less than 1000, I don't remember the exact number, might be less than 600. All lenses are clean, no dust and no scratches.

I have a Pentax AF360 flash like new and a DA35 f2.4 lens in perfect condition too. Well until the big combo goes I will hold on these small guys.

So I am thinking the combo price is like K-30+Sigma 50-150+Sigma 30/1.4 = 550+750+300=1600, plus 30 for insurance and shipping. If you are really interested, I can add AF360 or DA35/2.4 for a good price too.

Wait, did I say I have 4 m43 bodies? Well I can give out an E-PL2 body for free with the 1600 combo. The K-30 has two extra batteries.

Some pictures are attached. You want to see the 30/1.4 or other things, just let me know.

Thanks!

Don't get the kit lens or just sell it. Before you get the PL25, you might want to try Sigma 19/2.8 or 30/2.8 which is currently on sale for $150.

Item Description
Panasonic 20mm f/1.7 lens for micro four thirds: $260

Excellent condition. No scratches, no dust, no fungus. With front and rear caps. Couldn't find the box though.
The reason I want to sell it is I have Panny 25mm already. This lens performed very well on E-PL2 and E-M5.
You sure know this lens is perfect except the AF speed is not very fast. But still the price is around $300 anywhere.

Thanks.:lol:

The rule of thumb is to use Sandisk SD card if possible. If not, Lexar, then Transcend, even Patriot is more reliable than Kingston. Nothing else.

Kingston flash memories have compatibility issues...no scientific survey though. But NAND is definitely not coming out of the same production line.

From my experience, Kingston is a very good brand for desktop and laptop memories. However coming to flash memories, I would try to avoid this brand. My Sandisk 64GB SD card has no problem in K-30.

I sold my 60D and got a 7D. My only complain is the IQ under low light due to the 18mp sensor. K30 is much better.

Item for Sale
Sigma EF 610 DG ST TTL Flash for Pentax

Asking Price
$80

Item Location
NYC (United States)

Item Description
This Sigma flash was bought last year. In perfect condition. Worked great on K-X and K20D. Well I wouldn't sell it until I get the new K-30. Beware! As for now, all Sigma flashes have no TTL on K-30. Use it in manual mode... no problem. If you want to use it on old Pentax models ( K5, K-R, K-X, etc), everything will be fine.

That's why I am selling it now. I cannot wait for Sigma to develop a new firmware. If you buy it, do not use it on K-30 for TTL.

Comes with box and everything.

Thanks!
