I'm a bit confused with the total actuations?


"We purchased it used with only 300 actuation and hasn't gotten much use since. "


Currently has "23K actuation's"

Thanks,
Ken

Most likely a generic description copied and pasted from one ads to another.

Hi Ken,

I agree on the confusion of terms and so I'll try to better explain what I meant by this. When we purchased this camera, it was as a third body in a 3 piece kit for work. And it was like new at the time with only 300 clicks. However, over the course of our work, this camera hardly saw any action as it was our extra or backup unit, whereas the other bodies saw nearly 250K clicks.

I should really try to explain that better, but I couldn't think of any good way to convey the information in a short and straight forward way. Though, I wanted to give a little history behind the camera. - Hope this helps.

It doesn't include the Katzeye, but I am assuming it includes a standard focusing screen and OEM eyecup?

Finally, how long should I expect shipping to take to get to me in North Carolina if I bought the item?

Correct on the screen and eyecup.
The ETA for Expedited parcel - US, is 8 working days.

I've since update my product summary/history because the shutter count was confusing. You can find it in the highlight listing.

Can I ask exactly what kind of eyecup is in the photos? Is it a magnifying eyecup?

Thanks,

George

Hi George,

That is the KPS UCC eyecup. And it is a magnifier as well, albeit a low magnification one. It is the only eyecup that I use for manual shooting(Katzeye) as it offers very good visibility and allows me to use the camera without my glasses. Well, technically, I just drop my glasses down and fit it to my eye. Anyways, it's a great piece of equipment and definitely worth checking out if you're considering one.



Hope this helps.

John,

Thanks a lot. I have been looking for one of these for my K20. I've been wanting to put a Katzeye in for awhile as well.So does yours have a different lens installed than the one that comes with this kit?

Thanks again,

George

Update and say that I've installed a new focusing screen(original Pentax part) on this camera today.
I'll include the old screen as a spare part in the sale. - thx
