[SOLD] Pentax K20D with issue

Pentax K20D - 320 USD shipped OBO. SOLD Good condition, one problem.

Got it from a forum member. It has one problem - the central contact of the hot-shoe is shortened. I've found that out after receiving the camera. So the mounted flash or radio trigger won't work.

Otherwise the camera works fine, is in good condition, shutter counts less than 16,000, some little scratches on the back LCD, no visible scratches on the body, no marks, built-in flash works, PC-socket works so it can be used in studio.

I've asked the repair shop in USA and they told me the camera can be fixed but didn't give me the repair price.

I have box, strap, additional generic battery, generic data cable, CD, manual, strap, bottom rubber cover, no hot-shoe cover.

It is a great deal for an available light photographer, as a backup camera or for the beginner.

It's the lowest price I've seen for the K20D


Now I prefer to trade it for some stuff. I'm interested in: DA 21mm Lim, DAL 35mm, DA 40mm Lim, DA 70mm Lim, Takumar 85mm, Pentax M or K 85mm, Voigtlander 58mm (I or II), DA 55-300, other primes (except 50mm), AF-540FGZ Flash. Plus cash if needed.

I can even trade it for some Canikon stuff - lenses, bodies, flashes.

I can also sell it for cash - please contact me.

Shipping: Worldwide.

Shipping Charge: Included.

Do you mean shortened as in "short circuit" or shortened as in shorter?

I mean there is a physical contact between central contact and base (metal chassis). The resistance is very low, it should not be. Seems like there is a physical connection, or shortened inner cord, of broken hotshoe block... I don't know.

I know that: the camera works fine otherwise and this can be repaired.

The shot I've made with this camera and Samyang 85mm:

Does this include original battery and charger? Are you able to take a photo of all the included items?

Will you post to Australia? Where are you sending from?

Yes, this includes original charger, Pentax battery, generic battery, CD, manual in English, strap, eyecup, TV-cable, generic data cable, original box (number is cut off).

I'll post pictures later.

Certainly I post to Australia. I'm sending from Moldova, Europe with tracking.

What is the normal life of a shutter on the K20? I know my K100D is at 31,000-ish and is strong as ever.

Pentax says it's 100,000 guaranteed. Someone said here on PF about his experience of using the camera after 100,000...

My K10D did 50,000 and still working fine.
