I would like to use my collection of old M and A lenses so a K5 body or similar would be ideal - please PM me - have only 120 to 130 - sorry for being a cheapskate ! Cheers, Gary.

Hello Howard,

I did notice you had a K5 for sale but did not want to insult you with a low offer - I was hoping that someone might have one that functions OK but is a bit rough bodywise, hence a lower price.

Thank you.

Well what would be your absolute best offer?

I have to stick to my original budget - I'm sure that with a relatively low shutter count and a couple of scratches on the base you should get close to your asking price - is it on Ebay ?

I haven't gone the eBay route yet, thought I would try the forum first.
Thanks anyway

Maybe you could do a whip round so that he could buy mine?

I'm thinking about it.

Hey

I have a K-5 body for sale. Looking for a little more than than your budget but fairly close.

Especially if you're looking to use with Manual lenses it's a good candidate for a Catzeye

Kind Regards

Hi- Thanks, did you follow the voting for that comp? I thought I was fighting it out with a horse on a beach then a 'skydiver' came out of the blue and won!!!!! Still, at least the prize was donated to the winner's camera club.......................

Cheers,

Gary

It certainly is. DXO still have it as one of the very best in terms of image quality. Dynamic range, in particular, is hard to beat...
Best wishes,
