Mk 2 is stupid cheap

Looking at your sig you'd need to spend to get full-frame compatible glass as well.

Get new at SRS and you can't go wrong with K1ii and 28-105

I bought my 'used' DA* 300 from them, it was mint condition at a bargain price. Excellent service too!
Regards,
Michael

Hello,

did you happen to find one yet? follow the link below to see my ad

But you sold it on 19th October, did you not? There were 51 bids on eBay for it so if the winner pulled out there were plenty of under bidders. I can't understand how you can now be offering it here. In any event import duty into the UK would likely make it uneconomic.

I was thinking new crop of AF glass Patrick...

Iíve got mixture of APS-C and FF glass for my kit - I have K-1, Z-1p and P50 but no crop body...

I will keep the K5iis for my zooms & use a K1 Mark 1 ( when it happens ) for primes as a lighter weigh option too

Out of interest, what sort of prices were these commanding? Might look to purchase one in future.

Nice looking one just gone on Ebay, few months old with the grip and 5 batteries. £1050 or best offer.

One I just missed out on last week went for £ 802 +PP low shutter count. A £ 1,000 is top end of range via dealers

Consider the usual value of batteries and the grip itself - might work out nicely, especially if you sell what you don't need.

I think I saw the £802 one youíre on about.
Iíve noticed a few around the £1k mark but was wondering if those on eBay varied much to those offered here.

Thanks as always all!

Yup, that's why I mentioned it

Considering how much I paid a couple of years ago (and if anyone knows me, I don't pay that kind of money too often) the current prices are extremely good for what is a superb camera.

There is one on for sale at CeX for £750 at a certain store with a B grading for condition. It may be worth a punt.
