Looking for a Pentax K-01 Black Version, ideally in excellent condition without scratches or issues.

Not overly concerned about the original box, or whether it has a lens or not, but must have battery & charger.

Payment via PayPal and shipped RMSD would be perfect.

Please PM me if you've one that you'd like to sell.

Thanks for the offer Barrie much appreciated, but with it including the superb 40mm f2.8 it was a bit more than I'd like to pay.

Anyone else got one they're willing to sell?

Willing to pay 170 for the Black version (body only) in excellent condition.

Hi Rick

We have two K-01's, one in black and one in silver, both in exceptional condition with negligible shutter count. The black one belongs to my son, but I will ask him if he's willing to sell.

Will get back to you as soon as I can.

Regards

Still on the hunt if anyone's got one.

These seem to be highly sought after, wouldn't mind one myself!
Best regards, John

What's special about the black version?

Just my personal preference, the most minimal of the colour combos.

Although the silver version is growing on me.

Basically trying to replace the one I foolishly sold.

Right, I see. Probably easier to source a black/silver one. Then there's blue, yellow.... !

Managed to source one, thanks to everyone who helped.

I guess for a few people they'll be wondering why on earth would you want one, but I deeply regretted selling my previous one (did it to fund other purchases, like you do).

In the hand it might not be the most elegant, user friendly of cameras... but on a tripod it becomes something of an altogether different experience that I'm looking forward to again.

Future Classic or Collectors item because of the Marc Newson design, I guess we'll have to wait and see!
