FS: Pentax K-3 with battery grip


Link Posted 07/11/2019 - 13:12
For sale is a Pentax K-3 DSLR with D-BG5 battery grip.

The camera is boxed and comes complete with strap, body cap, hot shoe cover, eyecup and ME viewfinder cover, 32GB SanDisk Extreme memory card, Pentax D-LI90 battery and charger, software CD and Operating Manual. This is my second K-3 bought specifically for use with a Pentax 150-450 lens (since sold) so the shutter count is only 2078 and the camera is in excellent condition. The body is mainly unmarked with just a tiny amount of wear on the Menu button. The LCD screen and viewfinder are clear. It has no mechanical or electrical issues. Firmware is up-to-date version 1.40. Overall it is in great condition and I would be preaching to the converted to mention what a superb camera the K-3 is

The body is being sold complete with D-BG5 battery grip Ė essential (IMO) for hand-holding the 150-450 lens and of great benefit when using any longer focal length prime or zoom lenses, also usefully providing a duplicate set of controls for vertical format shooting. The grip is boxed with Operating Manual and complete with two battery trays for AA and D-LI90 batteries. A compatible Hahnel battery is provided. The grip has the same weather and dust resistance as the K-3 body and is in mint condition.

I would prefer to sell the K-3 and grip together for £350 (firm) to include RM recorded and fully insured delivery.

£60 for the D-BG5 grip including battery, two trays and RM fully insured delivery.

£270 for the near mint K-5 with all accessories and memory card. RM fully insured delivery.

To avoid any misunderstandings could I please just clarify that the reduced price of £250 in response to smcís interest is for the K-3 only.

Referring to my previous post on 16th November, the K-3 is reduced from £270 to £250 but the D-BG5 grip remains at £60. My absolute rock bottom price for camera and grip together is £300.
