Item for Sale
K5 in original box with everything you can find in a new camera package. $540

Asking Price
$540 USD

Item Location
Austin TX (United States)

Item Description
[COLOR="rgb(139, 0, 0)"]K5 camera in box, comes with everything you should see in the original new package. Many items have never been taken out from the package.[/COLOR]

It is definitely a wonderful camera. It was purchased in January 2011, and the shutter count is ~25,000. It has the latest version of firmware installed. Everything works great as it should. Sensor is clean. Mirror flop happened < 5 times in the past two years, and each time the mirror moved just twice at the first 3-5 shots (flop one more time after a normal click). Didn't happen in the past 6-7 month. Maybe just by chance (it happened very occasionally), or firmware update helped, or just because the batteries are slight different. Not sure, but it doesn't bother me.

Cosmetically, it is in very good shape as you can see from the pictures. Just a few light scratches on the bottom and the switch of the battery cover.

What is included:
USB cable I-USB7
Strap O-ST53
2X Rechargeable Batteries: 1x Lithium-ion Battery D-LI90 (<30-40 charges) + 1x third party matching battery (<100 charges)
AC plug cord
AV cable I-AVC7
ME Viewfinder Cap
Battery Charger D-BC90
Software (CD-ROM)
3X SD card

Is your K5 still available. If so, do your know what the major difference is between the K5 vs. K5II/S?

In short, the major improve on K5II is AF under very low light. And K5IIs does not have AA filter so you can get more details, but the price is $100 and chance of seeing moire and artificial colors. K5IIS is good for landscape and K5II is better for general propose, and K5 has much better price.[COLOR="Silver"]
