[SOLD] K20D $250.00 K-X $225 DA16-45mm $225 all Incl Shipping (Worldwide)

Item Location
Canada

Free shipping with each item to Canada and the USA Via Canada Post Air Express

Item Description

SOLD1) Pentax K20D in good overall condition at $250.00 and SOLD AS IS. Comes complete with all original parts and battery, charger etc. I can't seem to locate the original manual but I do have the CD, Quick start guide (that shows much of all the major functions) I also have a spare K10D full manual and the 2 cameras arevery similar in most features. I'll include that. If I find the K20D manual, I'll put that in the box as well.

I'm offering at a reduced price (Ebay sales appear to be around $450.00 plus shipping).This camera has an issue It was my primary until the end of this summer. The issue has been reported here by a rare few users. The AE-L will come on periodically and you have to hit the button to unlock the exposure. In Play mode, the rear E dial will sometimes not zoom but go to "protect" "unprotect" mode. Again hit the AE-L button to use normally.

For casual shooting, these are not big issues. You just hit the button if the AE-L happens to lock. The issue only happens periodically and not something you have to correct regularly.

For me shooting portraits and weddings though, I can't risk missing a shot if the AE-L comes on at the wrong moment.

Also includes all original parts, original Pentax battery and 2 spare batteries (both Minolta originals) and an SD card (8 GB Duracell SDHC 150x).

SOLD2) Pentax K-x Body with original parts and box.
This camera works fine and is also at a reduced price because of a cosmetic issue with the body. I also can't locate the manual at this moment. A PDF is downloadable from Pentax but if I find the original, I'll send it with the camera.

Please note the following: I had the camera over my shoulder and it clipped a staircase handrail. It must have hit at just the "right" (wrong) spot and cracked the flash housing. The flash works fine, pops up and locks back down in place but there is a crack on the front of the body that is through the Pentax logo and down the front about 3/4".

Everything works perfectly with the camera and outside of the crack, it's in very good condition. Since the issue, I've taken about 5000 frames, plus 4-5 videos and never had any issues with anything on this body. The crack is cosmetic.

Pending sale3) DA16-45mm f4 Lens $225.00 incl shipping (Ebay prices seem to be around $250.00 plus shipping).

Perfect working condition. I've had this lens for awhile and also a DA*16-50mm. Frankly this lens is every bit as good as the DA*. Now with the High ISO cameras like the K-x, K-r and K-5 being so good, the speed of this lens at f4 isn't much of an issue over an f2.8 zoom.

AF is fast and accurate. Lens is in excellent cosmetic and mechanical condition. Aperture works perfectly and no oil on the blades. No issues with this lens at all.

Includes the lens, original caps and hood. I don't think I have the box but it will be well packed for shipping.

Shipping to Canada and the USA is FREE Ask for WW.

I'm very interested in the K-X. Can you post a shot of the crack? Is it actually missing part of the housing or just a fracture that may move when flexed? I'm interested in getting my first DSLR and morre $$ for glass would be great! (I only have 1 post to date so i can't PM yet). Thanks!

Photos in a few moments.The crack is not a missing part but as you described, a fracture.

You will note that the rear screen has some very light scratches but this does not effect the camera use in any way. It also has a replacement strap that is from an older Pentax body. This strap has small pockets that will store SD cards, the flash cover an other small bits.
