Item Description

I am selling my K-7 to fund a K-5 purchase. K-7 Body Only with all accessories, box and 2nd third party battery - $720 - sold for $700 plus shipping

The camera itself was purchased through an ebay reseller in July. It was purchased as a refurbished unit, so no warranty is available. Although sold to me as a refurbished unit, by all appearances it was new stock returned by a retailer. The shutter actuation was around 270 when I received it, and the interior packaging appeared untouched (including all accessories and the camera of course). The original box, battery, strap, cables and all other accessories are included, and the 2nd third party battery will be sold with the camera whether sold as a kit, or parted out.

I have myself only used the camera on a couple of occasions, and without looking (since I am at work at the moment) know total actuations are well under 1K (update: shutter count according to Photome is 495). I have also updated to the most current firmware. The camera body itself is like new, I have taken care of it while in use and there are no marks or blemishes to speak of (will also add photos this evening). There is also a rear screen protector which I added to the camera shortly after purchase.

I received one PM with some pertinent questions, so will add my response here: I have not seen any dead pixels showing up in the image (though the camera does have a dead pixel mapping feature which I may have run initially); the rear LCD also does not have any dead or stuck pixels. There is no dust in the viewfinder or on the sensor. As was outlined in the description (and shown in the photos), there is really no sign of wear. I received the camera with approximately 280 actuations, and the most recent photo I took was actuation #495 (according to Photome).

AVAILABLE - price lowered, $40 shipped. The DAL 18-55mm is from my K-x kit, and has never been used, so is in new condition.

The 3rd party grip (willing to sell grip only separately for $35 shipped) is the same one sold by dealextreme, and discussed in detail in several threads here at the forum. The grip was also only used once, as I eventually purchased the OEM pentax grip. It is visually identical to the Pentax grip, but is made with a different material, and does not have weather sealing. It does come with both a Li-ion battery tray and AA battery tray as well (note: 2nd battery will be sold with the camera whether as a kit or parted).

IF you have any more questions please ask, and if you would like any specific testing of the body or lens done prior to making the purchase I will be happy to do so. I will try my best to do any requested tests for potential buyers, but it will remain for sale in the meantime. Thanks for looking, photos to come!

PM replied to PBO.

I should have remarked above - unless I receive a buyer for the body-only itself, I am going to hold off for a couple of days selling either the lens or grip on their own (would much prefer to sell/ship to a single buyer).
