Listed on ebay https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/114800666423 - only 2000 of these made I believe - would cancel the auction if a private sale agreed and no bids received...shed loads of watchers but suspect they'll bid at the last minute as always.

Hi John
I'll give you 950 for the kit, ebay youd pay 18% so my offer is better..
Cheers

I too was going to offer 900 but then the car got advisories on its MOT - Your camera money went on four new tyres! (it was me that asked you about warranty and where you'd purchased it from).
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass

That would be true Bruce based on a couple of assumptions - one that I'll only get the minimum listing price and two that I'm paying full ebay fees.

I'm on an 80% off FVF deal with ebay so the charges are less than 30 if it sells on this auction run...ask me again after Sunday if you like when the auction finishes if it isn't sold as I think I lose the 80% off deal then I might be more open.

Normally I wouldn't comment on an auction, however, I'd suggest re-wording this part of the listing: 'The k-1 is a full frame 36 megapixel camera with pixel-shift functionality that can increase image size by four' - it can't.
