which cheap remote

I would like some suggestions for buying cheap remotes from ebay. I saw those selling for around $2. are they any good or should I buy a genuine one for around $25?

I have 4 of the Chinese remotes. I prefer this model:
LLC RM-E7 Remote Control reviews - Pentax Camera Accessories: Database and Reviews

For the K-r it works the shutter with the main button and for the K-5 it does AF with one button and shutter with the other. Runs around $8 shipped typically. Good distance, reliable for me, and uses a pretty standard CR2025 battery which run around 99cents at B&H if you need a replacement.

I have one also and I liked it with my k-x. Tried it with my K-5 tonight but no luck.. the battery had died. But good to know it should work with it as well.

I also have one remote from DealExtreme for various cameras.. did not work at all. The battery wasn´t to blame .

You can often find the CR2025 battery at places like WalMart and Target. Not sure how easy they would be in Finland but Onnea teille.

Easy to find here also and I just found one at home . And like you said the W/T button on k-5 works as an AF button, nice .
