So few words, so many mistakes in one ad!

At $1481, this K3II may be pricy but it is nearmint. And it has "Gps Internal Low-Pass Selector Up To About 8.3." Whatever that may be...

Must be the "new K3" - the K-3li

May be capable of 8.3 fps - but then again, so are the K-3 & K-3II

Like many ads from Japan, the pictures look like stock pictures, not of the item itself. Even the last picture looks like it could be a Pentax publicity shot, and is that lens included or not?

And the South Africans are at it again.

This is what a Canon 2000D with two zoom lenses looks like. The other lens is just outside the frame, I suppose.

Edit: it is described as very new and priced as such. Sigh...

Pentax is now spelled Olympus

I messaged this seller about the error. Listing still the same with a lower price.

Another one from the truly clueless:

Camera in perfect working conditions no memory card. All got leather bags. Got 1 zoom lense one night lense 1 spy lense and 2 smaler lenses all working
I can only wonder how the seller can state that it's in working condition. Does it just need a memory card? That would be as useful as a chocolate teapot with a film camera.

While I already have a zoom lense, I have never owned a night lense, spy lense or smaler lense. No idea apart from the picture. The ad contains five images, all exactly the same.

At least the price (about USD50) is realistic...

It seems to me that a very significant part of that flash is missing. The main head that swivels, like some Metz flashes had. What is left is just the fill-in flash that works when you bounce the main unit. I could be wrong and this is really all there ever was.




Then there is the "control switch" on the lens that needs fixing.

Exactly what I was referring to. The flash unit in the ad seems a little stunted.

That mount is obviously an ERD (Exceedingly Rapid DisMount)

The camera appears to be missing the rewind crank too.
