Apparently cameras with that sort of "decoration" are not that rare - in fact, SRS had a KM pretty much like the one shown above in the shop-front window Pentax display when many of us were there last Saturday for the Pentax 100 year celebration!

I asked about it, and was told that a company with a name something like "Bling it up" (apparently that sold through the Harrods store in London) would do that to pretty much anything!
Is it any wonder why no one wants to sell Pentax anymore after seeing those cameras?

Are they hoping that someone bids before noticing it's not actually a lens and then feels compelled to go through with the purchase
I think that's actually it.

I almost purchased a SodaStream machine last year, the price was 30$ lower (CAD) than anywhere else... Until I realized that it didn't come with the first CO2 bottle (which costs 35$) so the price was actually 5$ MORE than usual...

This one has been on offer for a long time. Apart from a high asking price, what else is holding up the sale? Perhaps the colour...

For all I know, it is new in box. I can't see this as a big seller, even when it was new.

The opening bid price translates to about USD150, plus about USD40 shipping for overseas buyers. Quite an issue, I think.

From the men of few words department:

"Pentax Camera K10 with a range of lenses"

That is it, except for some bad pictures.

I can make out a Sigma 70-300mm for sure. There is also an F 35-70mm or 28-70mm (hard to tell). And some SMC Pentax M goodness at the bottom, most likely a nifty fifty. The rest look like film era MF zooms, probably in the 28mm to 105mm range. The one second from the top looks kinda nice, but I am really not sure. Feel free to help with identifying the mystery lenses.

To make things worse more interesting, the asking price for this lot is quite ambitious. For just 20% more I can get a brand new Canon EOS4000D starter kit with 18-55mm and 75-300mm lenses. Sigh...

Fifty quid for an M 50mm f/2. Wow! That is more than I paid for my M 50mm f/1.4...
