Not sure if this is the best place to put this question (admins feel free to move it to another area), but does anyone have an idea of the value of a K20D camera body (with or without a kit lens)
The reason is, is that I have outgrown the K20D and need a second body to replace it as backup to my mighty K-5. The K-30 springs to mind, as does the K-5IIs

So, to facilitate this I am considering selling the K20D (not yet, just thinking - hence why it is not in the classifieds)

It has done circa 30,000 clicks, and had a replacement sensor under warranty circa 9000 clicks (service was included), so you could say around 20000 clicks net.
I still have the box and charger as well

Thoughts on the value? If good, it may end up in the classifieds.

I'd still say 30,000 clicks OH....it's not the sensor but the shutter count.... as I say in my sale thread it's just run in.....

I see 2/3 K20Ds on sale at the moment - and they don't seem to be moving - and now that K-7s are appearing at under 300 the trend seems likely downward - although saying that if the K-3 24MP was out now there would be a glut of K-5s for sale...so look at those for sale and you'll get an idea what a K20D won't fetch...

I'm not one of these to reduce the price quickly - if it sells it sells- I'm in no hurry and I am quite conscious of what prices cameras and lenses fetch..so mine plus grip will stay at 285 for the time being.

K7 and kit lens went for 240 on ebay the other day, so I suspect the new K5 and the K30 pricing is having an impact on used vales.

You can check out completed listings on eBay. Recent K20D bodies went around 250.

Sorry on checking the K7 went for 260 - I was just astounded at how little.
