Pentax K10D Factory Demo? Should I buy it?

I was wondering what you guys thought of buying a "Pentax Factory Demo" from Cameta Camera? They say they're a certified Pentax dealer, and everything I've heard has been good. The K10D I'm looking at is $400 and comes with everything, and a warranty. Does this sound like a good idea? Says it's in mint condition and is inspected by Pentax beforehand.
I'm seriously thinking of buying from this seller because it's a lot cheaper and sounds like a good deal. Does anyone have any opinions? Thank you! I'd like to order tonight if I can.

The original Pentax adapter is the best. The Bower one, also without a flange, "works" but can get stuck by letting you 'overturn' the lens into the bayonet mount. All adapters with a flange won't let you focus to infinity.

Thanks for the quick response! As soon as someone confirms that the K10D auction I just linked to is a good idea, I'm going ahead with it.

By the way sir, is this the one?

That's the good one. I like to use it on the really bulky or heavy M42 lenses, just to be sure.

About Cameta, I bought my first new lens from them a couple of years ago and had no problems. It's probably OK to buy this camera. I would certainly check the camera thoroughly for known K10D issues when I got it. (Such as the tilted viewfinder.)
