Pentax *ist D/Pentax DA 18-250mm combo (Canada/USA) Price Revised !

Asking Price
300.00 USD

Item Location
Vancouver BC Canada

Item Description
I'm selling off a TON of Pentax Gear as I've switched to Nikon. This ist* D is in really nice shape. The nice thing about this camera is that it accepts TTL flash. That was always great. I bought it from KEH about 2 years ago, but it really didn't get used all that much.
Let's talk. The camera is in great shape, a small scuff on the upper display. Very minor. The viewfinder has a few specks, nothing major and can likely be cleaned by taking the screen out.
PhotoMe shows manufacture date Jan 15/2005, Model Rev. 8.1. I looked for shutter count and found no definitive number.
Photos look good, jPegs a bit soft as was the big gripe about this camera, and RAW images looked fine as well. Photos sharpened up nicely in PP, so meter is OK. Bear in Mind this camera is 5 Years Old, so you're gonna get a few dust specks here and there. Flash works properly. For 2003 Technology, a pretty nice DSLR but Man! The LCD on the back is TINY by today's standards ! Camera comes as-is. No Cards, cables, or Manual.
The DA 18-250mm is in great shape. no dings or dents. Clear glass. Sharpest lens in the world ? Hardly. Wide it's pretty good, and gets better stopped down. At the 250mm end, it could be sharper and there will be a bit of purple fringing, but a Tripod or fast speed goes a long way to correct this. At 5.6/6.3, this lens is certainly not fast, but with lots of Light, not too bad. Includes front cap and UV filter.
A nice starter kit or ? Any questions? Let me know.
