[SOLD] Pentax K10D + D-BG2 Grip with split prism screen (US/UK/CAN/AUS) Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax K10D + D-BG2 Grip with split prism screen

Asking Price
$320 CDN / $330 USD net to me

Item Location
Langley BC Canada

Item Description
Lightly used K10D and grip set up with a split screen for manual lenses. The split screen is one cut down from a Nikon film camera, and cut at an angle to give a ~45 degree split prism angle. I cut it down myself, and it has a number of marks on the glass as a result, but I've gotten used to it and never bothered to get a KatzEye one because this one is deadly accurate, even at close distances with my K50 1.2 wide open. The original screen is also included if you'd rather use that one. It also has some (light) marks from handling it. The body has just under 6900 shots. Comes with an OEM Pentax D-BG2 grip and a total of 2 OEM Pentax batteries (one in the body, one for the grip) which both still hold charge perfectly. Also comes with the manual, boxes, cables, etc for both the body and the grip. I don't know if I still have the software CD, but I know I have everything else. The LCD has some small scratches that I tried to get in a photo but they won't show up. The biggest one is about 5mm long. Note: the body does NOT come with a memory card.

Now that I have the K5 this one is collecting dust - time for a new home where it can be loved once more!

Note: I will also consider trading for a Tamron 28-75mm 2.8 (or possibly a Sigma 24 - 60/70mm 2.8).

More photos can be seen here.

I've now added a trade option - if you have a Tammy 28-75 (or similar) kicking around that you'd like to trade, shoot me a PM.
