Market price for used K-r?

Selling my K-r (black), curious as to what market prices are;
...K-r with the DA L 18-55mm DA AL II release Lens (not the cheaper DAL kit lens)
2,700 verified shutter actuations
Pentax dealer purchased 12/10, receipt included
..the AA battery adaptor accessory included and LCD glass protector been in place.
Box, all accessories, software, etc

So basically the newer lens, it's a "mint" used camera with documentation and receipt for warranty, unlike a lot of used items.

I will be selling, what would be a reasonable asking price? thnx
(I have/had a collection of Canon glass and am moving to a T2i platform)

I'd say 10-15% below the current prices is probably a reasonable starting point. The kit L and MkII versions of the kit lens are optically identical, the price diff if you sell separately would be something like $40 for the L and $50 for the MkII, shipped/fees incl.

The MK II kit lens is more desirable than the DA L because of the quick shift feature. I think your kit should get at least a $20 premium over a similar kit with the DA L lens. You can list it here with a starting price of 10% less than a new DA L type kit and add a 'or best offer' to the listing. See what offers come, and take the best.
