[SOLD] Pentax K-7 body, excellent condition (US) Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax K-7 body, excellent condition

Asking Price
$599 (Including shipping & PayPal)

Item Location
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA

Item Description
For most, this camera needs no introduction. It's a great camera body, and the only reason I am selling it is I just bought a K-5. I wish I could keep both. It is in excellent shape, with no marks or scratches. Shutter count is approximately 5,200. No dust on the sensor. The battery holds its charge like new. I upgraded to the K-7 from the K-x primarily because of the larger, brighter viewfinder. Its 100% coverage pentaprism makes manual focusing easier and more accurate. It also helps to confirm autofocus. Some of the other benefits of the K-7 over entry-level camera bodies include:
  • Water sealing for resistance to rain, splashes, and other incidental water contact.
  • More advanced, accurate autofocus system.
  • Faster continuous shooting
  • Multiple dials for making quick changes without digging through menus
  • Quieter shutter (people don't all turn their heads when you snap a photo)
  • Sturdier, more well-balanced build
  • TAv mode, in which you set both the shutter speed and the aperture. Camera controls sensitivity, within a range you specify.
  • Interval shooting for recording time-lapse sequences.
  • Level in the viewfinder for horizontal horizons (and vertical poles, etc.)
  • Better white balance
  • More accurate exposures
  • Rechargeable Li-Ion battery for more time & exposures between charges.
  • Battery grip connections for Pentax or 3rd-party battery grip
  • Interchangeable focusing screen (if you want to use a Katz-eye or other 3rd party screen)
If you need a lens, check my other listings. Here are photos of the camera, as well as some photos taken with the camera.
