Pentax *ist D body, DA L 50-200mm

This Pentax *ist D is in very good condition. It has 17,500 actuations (retrieved from the frame count using photoME). There are some small scratches on the LCD Panels, the mode dial shows a little wear, and the strap lugs show some brassing. Other than that, the camera looks excellent.
I have taken a number of pictures, and everything I tried has worked correctly RAW, JPEG, exposure compensation, flash, different modes etc. Of course there are so many functions it is close to impossible testing them all. For this reason I will extend the return period to two weeks from receipt of the camera, giving you amble time to test it out.
I bought it from the original owner to get a FA 35mm F2 lens that came with it. I already have two camera bodies, so have no need for this. It comes with the original box, original strap, various paperwork, but no manual. Also include a SanDesk Extreme III 2 GB CF card.

Pentax *ist D: Asking $125 paypalled for Pentax *ist, plust $10 for s&h.


The DA 35mm F2.4 AL is in excellent condition. Glass is perfect. It was purchased in June last year. It has seen very little use, as I mostly got it as a faster supplement to a 16-45 F4, but after I got a DA* 16-50 F2.8 shortly after, it has seen essentially no use. According to LightRoom less than 250 pcitures in total, most of these tests! It comes in original box with front and rear pentax caps. I can exchange the pentax front cap with a metal 55mm hood and 55mm cap if you prefer.

Appears it is v1.00 (usign the menu+power on). Same from the EXIF (1.00.01.01)

Are there problems upgrading it to the latest (v1.2)??

Not that i know of, just curious. I don't know if it has any limitations on size of cards it will accept. Thanks for the info.

I had not thought about this. Firmware v 1.12 is available on the Pentax site, and contains quite a few improvement, including Nanking greater than 4GB cars (if I read it right). Seems pretty simple to do, and I would be happy to apply the update before shipping. May just go ahead and do it now, unless someone can give me a reason why not?

Pictures from yesterday, using a 35mm lens. If I hadn't just gotten a K-x as backup, I would have kept it myself.
