K-3 30k shutter count w/grip

What would the going rate be for a K-3 and grip with over 30k shutter count be? The 30k seems rather high to me as a potential buyer.

I have 55,000 on my K-5. I don't think 30,000, on a K-3 is excessive.

As for prices - there's quite a few listed in the Marketplace at the moment. See K-3 - Search Results - PentaxForums.com

30k isn't particularly high for a K-3 (it's rated for 200k), but it's certainly going to push the price down slightly. I'd say $500 for the combo would be fair assuming the camera is in good cosmetic condition.

If the price is reasonable, and the LCD isn't broken or unduly scratched, I'd buy it. At 30k with a overall 200k that would take a long time to fill up.

My K-5 has 26,475 on it and it's only rated at 100k.

Ah, didnt realize the K3 was listed at 200k. That eases the mind a bit.

Thanks for the responses.
