Pentax K-5 with 18-55mm kit lens (2 year extended warranty)

Asking Price
700 USD

Item Location
Ann Arbor, MI (United States)

Item Description
K-5 + 18-55WR Kit

Camera: Purchased almost exactly 1 year ago new. I am the only owner and I have taken very good care of it all the while. The LCD has had a screen protector since day 1 (can be seen in photos and is included), the top LCD is flawless (spec of dust seen in photo- it's not an imperfection), and there are two years left in the extended warranty (that includes one complete check-up by Pentax). As the warranty is technically non-transferable, I am happy to submit any warranty claims on your behalf should such a situation arise in the next two years. I love this camera- it takes beautiful photos. The only reason I am selling is because I'm one of those sick people who HAD TO HAVE a K5 IIs. Some more information from the EXIF data:

Shutter count: 16,130
Date manufactured: Aug 09, 2011

FLAWS: This camera has two imperfections. Firstly, there is a spec of dust on the sensor (visible in the top right hand side in last photo, taken at f22) that doesn't seem to affect image quality. This is not a stain, as it was not there when I purchased the camera. Lastly, there is small spec of dust visible in the viewfinder (this also doesn't affect image quality). I believe both things can be easily remedied, but I have never tried.

Lens: Had UV filter on it since day 1 and has been mounted no more than 8 times (I shoot with primes). Signs of mounting are visible on the metal lens mount; though these may wipe off- I have never cared to do so. Otherwise, lens is perfect.

What's included: Everything that came in original packaging. The charger, cables, and neck strap are NEW (they came with my IIs, I am keeping my old ones)- the battery is the original one included, which works without issue.

Note: the flowers photo was NOT taken with the kit lens. Apologies for this.

Bump- willing to entertain offers on body and lens separately, though would prefer to sell as kit.

That spec of dust is probably on the bottom side of the penta prism. Use a rocket blower to remove it. One less imperfection.

Final price cut: 660 net to me. If I can't get this, I'll either sell my equipment on eBay or set fire to it so that no one can enjoy it.
