Item Description

UPDATE: Sold on CL.
As I am selling the Tamron 70-200mm lens, I know that will takes a long time to go. So I'll just list my black K-X body here. I am the second owner and the body is in very good shape. Comes with the original box and accessories.

I changed the focusing screen with a split-image "Big Eye" focusing screen. It's bright and so useful. I like it very much. The shutter count is 8830. GGS LCD protector is installed. I used this K-X with 35/2.4, Tamron 17-50, Sigma 24-60 and Tamron 70-200. Flawless. No FF/BF problems at all.

$300 for the K-X body with "Big Eye" focusing screen.

Since I am letting of this camera, I have some manual lenses and stuff to go too. If you want them all with the K-X, just add $50. That includes a Sigma mini-wide II 28/2.8 (in rebadged Promaster brand), a Chinon 135/2.8 and a Metz 36C1 flash. Both lenses are clean, no scratches, no dusts. Front and back caps are included. The Metz flash is almost new.

So after selling the K-X (if someone takes it), I only have the Tamron 70-200 lens listed in another thread.

Non-CC Paypal or Money Order. No paypal fee needed.


Pictures will be added later.
