Good afternoon all. After careful and long thought I am thinking of parting with my K1. Simply too heavy for me to carry around anymore. Shutter count 29,831 hatched 29.02.16. No idea of value, I would rather it went to someone on this forum, no idea of value I consider it as good+ I will be prepared to let it go for a reasonable price, or a straight swap for a decent lens of comparable value, I have many lenses so obviously a lens I do not own. (a 43mm Limited would be nice)

A straight swap with a 43mm LTD would be a bit mad. Your K-1 is worth around 800+ ... the 43mm would be about half that.

Quite happy to go and buy a used 43mm and swap though

Edit : I have a lovely 60-250mm f/4 if you would rather that

Told you I had no idea of value, need to find 2 lens then. Watch this space, and of course now I know value of K1. Thanks.

Thanks also regarding you lens, I have a few long lenses and I am looking for sub 100mm. My go to at moment is 18-135 WR. I have 70-210 Sigma. F135, F28, FA50, F100 Macro, 70mm Ltd. etc. Numerous A & M & K series also which I will never part with.

If you are getting rid of the K-1 I presume you will be using a crop body?

Yes I will. I am fortunate in having a K3ii and K70, which is my go to because it is the lightest.

Do you mean battery grip? Or have you got the ultra rare K1 that uses 35mm film?
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass

A decent description of the camera and grip would probably help along with some photos. Marks on body/screen, boxed with accessories ... that sort of thing.
