It was a private seller, used and yes i used paypal. I am thinking about giving it to my daughter, she used my new K-50 last night and loves it over her Nikon D5100. She will use it to take wedding pictures! Thanks for you help!

Had a loose hanging strap snatch a DSLR out of my hand one time.... back in '05, it was a $1500 camera (Nikon)..... I decided I wasn't mature enough to have one yet! Got another one in '08, a used istD*, all is well now.... I don't let the strap swing free anymore...

OUCH! that had to hurt, my dropped K-50 still works great just nt WR anymore. I use it as a spare camera, i purchased a new body from B&H and use it as my primary camera. I keep my 18-135 on this camera and the 35mm prime on the other. Both are loaded with 32gb SanDisk Extreme Pro cards so im ready for anything!

Well a problem with this K-50 raised its ugly head today. I have been using this camera for the past few months after dropping it, i have used all my lenses and have had no issues. I recently purchased a used 18-135 lens and was trying it out today and encounted a problem. At full zoom the shutter would stick and continue shooting without pushing the button. I removed the lens and the camera continued shooting. The 18-135 on my new K-50 body works great without any issues.
