Hello from Nigeria

Hello fellow Pentaxians!
I've been a member for a while but this is my first post. I'm from Nigeria and i hope I'm not the first in this forum (Pentax isn't really that popular in Nigeria). I'm a relatively young hobbyist hoping to soon go pro and I own a Canon S1 IS and a K10D (with sigma 18-250mm & 50mm 1.4).

I recently did some shooting in the rain and noticed that some moisture gathered in the camera and viewfinder. That night, I took it apart (lens and grip and aired them out) Shortly after, the camera began to misbehave - hunts a WHOLE lot while trying to focus and will not respond to any attempts to change settings or mode.

So I've decided it's a cue for me to upgrade. Since I have the grip and A540FGZ flash, the natural way to go for me is the K20D. Unfortunately I can't seem to find it anywhere except Amazon and they won't ship it to Nigeria (Just bought a Sony FX-7 HD camcorder and a canon rebel XS for my church from them - and those shipped)! Paypal won't have anything to do with Nigeria so Ebay is out of the question.

Can anyone help me? ANY help is welcome.
Do you want to sell your K20D? I'm willing to buy, body only even, if you won't mind shipping to Nigeria.
