Is it a good deal?

Pentax k5 (26000 shots) well maintained. No scratches at all, screen protector still on. It looks brand new.
+ 18 - 55mm DA WR
+ extra battery (clone)
+ 2gb crapy sd
+ Battery grip (clone)
+ Lowerpro 200 backpack

640 free shipping.

What you think guys?

I was planning to buy a new k30/50/500 but this got on my sight.

Based on the fact that a new K-5 II is just $699 in the US, I'd say you could find a better deal. (640 euros = $885) A K-5 with that many clicks is worth $425 at best. The lens is another $100, and I wouldn't factor in the rest of the accessories. What can you get a K-50 for in your area?

I can't say whether this is a good deal; however I got a practically new K5II (250 shots) with the same lens as above for 670 EUR two weeks ago from amazon.de

Thanks for the quick response.

Well the cheapest price I could find for a k50 witth the kit lense is 540.
For the k30, same lense + dal 50 - 200mm is 549.

Found another k5 body only (6500 shots) 450 + shipping.

Well I missed getting slightly more used one with 18-135wr for 720EUR on ebay. There are opportunities; right now there is a used K5II body on amazon.de for 668 EUR. If you wait some you will for sure get similar or better deal.

I would go for that deal. You might also want to look into importing it from the US, as it's cheaper before shipping/customs (not sure if there will be any customs charges, I guess that depends).

I don't think its a good deal either,
I got my K5ii Last August with the 18-135 Kit. The camera itself only have 2000 click on it, and the seller included an 64GB SDXC in the bundle for 800$.


But seeing as how things have all decreased in price, i would agree with Others to get the K30 or K50 bundle deals that's going around different places. you'll get much newer technology with these deal, along with more versatile bundle lens, and still pay less in comparison.
