Two K-5 Camera Bodies For Sale


Link Posted 13/03/2017 - 15:33
Sue and I have both upgraded our APS-C cameras, plus we now have the K-1 as well, so there are two K-5 bodies for sale.

Sue's camera has a shutter count of 17,925 and mine has a count of 17,690. Both were manufactured 08/03/2011, which I presume means 3rd August as I took the data from the USA forum.

Both cameras have been cosseted and cared for and are in pristine condition. Both are fully functional in every respect. Both have the boxes and accessories.

UK only sales, the price is 200 each including tracked delivery. Payment by PayPal or cheque please.

Any questions, please ask. I haven't done any photos yet as we all know what a pristine K-5 looks like, but if necessary I will in due course.
Best regards, John

I am afraid it is not related to the sale, but I am curious as to where Sue went off alone to take those extra 235 exposures?

Good luck with the sales!

Fair question Peter. The answer is very mundane I'm afraid, I've been using Sue's K-5 to make the product shots for the ePHOTOzine lens reviews. The reason for that is that we took the strap off that one so it doesn't get in the way of anything when used on a tripod.

I told you the answer was mundane.....

Good luck with the sale John - I've had mine on for 195 with spare battery and card for a few weeks, and not a sniff of interest.

Congrats on the K1 John. I've had mine now for several months and don't regret getting it. Such a pleasure to use the 28 - 105 lens. i rarely used auto focus on my K5, but with the K1 and stated lens, it's fast and accurate.

I also picked up a Pentax FF 17 -28 fish eye lens, fun to use it, do some cropping and get a great panoramic shot. Along with my older primes, just having fun.
