MF Set up: Pentax K7 (~6500 clicks), Type S focusing screen, O-ME53 (SOLD:DA18-55 WR)

I have decided that I can't afford to own both a Ricoh GXR kit and a K7 kit, so unfortunately my beloved K7 kit has to go...

I would prefer to sell the kit as a whole, however I am open to selling it piece by piece if there isn't enough interest.

$500 for the K7 + focusing screen + O-ME53

$400 $410 $430 $440 $450 - K7 Body Only - With original box and extras listed below
To start, is my K7 body. I am the original owner, and it was purchased new in October of 2010. The camera is in excellent condition, but I have to rate it only as "good" due to some scuffs on one of the bottom edges (I didn't notice that the camera was rubbing up against a zipper on my shorts during a hike and it rubbed some paint away on the edge) and two or three very light scratches that show up on the rear LCD if you hold the camera at certain angles. These scratches are not in any way noticeable when viewing images on the LCD. The shutter count is a little over 6500 according to the shutter count tool on this forum. The camera is very well taken care of, always kept in a bag, and has not been used in severe conditions (rain, dirt, etc). Included for the above price are:

-K7 body with a little over 6500 clicks
-Original box with all the original accessories (Original eye piece, USB cable, Charger, eye cap cover, strap (never used), strap rings (never used), and USB video cable (never used)
-Aftermarket remote shutter release w/ cable
-Aftermarket wireless IR shutter release
-One extra aftermarket D-Li90 battery.

$75 $80 - Focusing Screen Type S focusing screen with stock AF bracket markings

This focusing screen is currently installed in the above K7 and I would prefer to sell it already installed and shimmed so that the new K7 owner can just start shooting with it. See this link for details: Focusing Screen

Also if you don't know what this is all about, see this thread here on the forum for details: https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/pentax-k-5/142241-best-screen-ever-manual...anon-ee-s.html

If sold separately, it will come in the original packaging.

$35 $40 - Pentax O-ME53 magnifying eye piece

This eye piece comes in like new condition, with the original box. I would prefer to sell it with the K7 kit, because combined with the Type S focusing screen, it provided a very nice set up for manual focus and large aperture (small DOF) focusing.

SOLD! $115 $120 - Pentax DA18-55mm WR kit lens (MINT)

This lens came with the above kit. As a result, unless it's purchased with the K7, it will not come with an original box. I will come with the original hood and front and rear caps. This lens has been mounted on the camera less than 10 times and is basically in new/unused condition.

Another bump and another price drop. Nobody interested in a low shutter K7 set up nicely to shoot manual glass with a shimmed type s focusing screen eye piece magnifyer? Would make a perfect backup body for someone looking to sell their K5 (but still wanting to keep a back up body) and use the extra funds to buy a K5-IIs
