Yes just 375, no that's not a typo.

I'm selling this on behalf of a friend who has upgraded to a K-5. The reason it's so cheap is that the box and most of the original accessories were "misplaced" during a house move. Here's a picture of what you'll actually get for your money:




There's the camera body (build date 30/06/09, shutter count 7123) with body cap, strap protectors, hot shoe cover, PC socket cover and rubber eye cup installed.

In addition there's a third-party battery, a third-party charger, USB cable, A/V cable and a printed manual (which he bought from eBay - not original but not cheap either).

There's no box, no other paperwork and no software (although as I get the feeling I'm the only person on these boards that actually likes Pentax Photo Lab I doubt any of you will care about that ).

I've taken a few test shots (mainly to get the shutter count) and it all seems to work perfectly. The cosmetics are excellent with just a tiny amount of rubbing on the hotshoe where a flashgun has been on and off (see pic below).




I know he's looked after this camera very carefully and has never had any problems with it, he just wants to recoup some of the money he's spent on the K-5. As he's a bit skint I've already given him the cash so technically the camera belongs to me now, except I can't really afford it right now either so I'm just looking to get my money straight back - hence the giveaway price for a quick sale.

Payment via PayPal, cheque or cash (if you want to collect it from the Aylesbury area). Postage will be extra at cost, for the UK that will be 7 for Royal Mail Next Day Special Delivery. I don't mind posting overseas but I'll only send via a tracked/insured service so it'll probably be in the region of 20-40 depending on where you live.

Someone please buy this quick before I end up keeping it - there's only so long I can keep repeating the mantra "there is nothing wrong with your K10D..."

First to PM me with a confirmed offer wins.

Arrived today just as described: in excellent condition! Thanks very much Paul Hopefully I'll get a chance to play with it a bit this evening.

Anyone know if the software that came with the K-7 is basically updated versions of what came with the older Pentax' or did it come with extra stuff? I have the K200d software so if it's the same I might install it and see if I can update to the latest version just to try it out.

Considering trying out that PKTether program too...

Thanks again!

I believe it is just updated older software - so can download from the Pentax support website
