Pentax K-5 16mp Camera - Beautiful Condition! Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax K-5 16mp Camera - Beautiful Condition!

Asking Price
$575.00 $550.00 USD

Item Location
Pennsylvania (United States)

Item Description
Here is a beautiful well cared for Pentax K-5 camera. I am the original owner and take great care of all my gear.

The camera was purchased new on July 8 2012. It has been trouble free until I was having some auto focus issues this past March 2013. As I normally do, I had fine tuned the AF adjustment for my better lenses which gave me superbly sharp images. Over this past winter, I noticed the AF adjustment was off a little, so I made the re-adjustment with no problems. Of course this bothered me a little, so I decided to send it off to CRIS for calibration. CRIS adjusted the auto focus and all was good again.

The shutter count which I checked this morning is 5232.

In the meantime, I had my eye on the new K-5IIs and ended up buying one. The only reason for this sale is my upgrade to the K-5IIs.

The camera comes complete with everything that it did originally when new included the packaging. Below is a list of the included items which you can also see in the images:

K-5 camera
Original battery in perfect working condition
Battery charger with power cord
A/V cable - never used
USB cable - never used
Neck strap - never used
Camera body cover
Hot shoe cover
Viewfinder cover - never used
Original manual and assorted paperwork - never used
Software CD - never used

I want to touch on warranty information. This seems to be a gray area concerning the transfer of warranty to a second owner. From some of the accounts I've read here on the forum, Pentax is somewhat lenient about warranty repair if proof of purchase is provided that proves it is not a gray market camera. While I am certainly not saying that the second owner would be able to obtain warranty repair, I will be included the following items to aid the new owner in the case a repair might be needed. I did purchase the extended 2 year warranty the same day as the camera purchase which makes for a total of 3 years of warranty - good until 7/8/2015.

Original receipt from Amazon dated 7/8/2012
Original receipt from Adorama for the 2 year extended warranty dated 7/8/2012
Original repair receipt from CRIS dated 3/19/2013

Another nice benefit with this camera - it is clean! When I received the camera back from CRIS they gave it a thorough cleaning along with the needed adjustment. Here is what is listed on the repair order from CRIS:

Adjusted optimal resolution focal point
Adjusted to manufacturers specifications
General clean & check
Checked updated firmware

Shipping: I will ship the camera via USPS Priority Mail the next business day after payment is received with the cost included with the sale price.

Payment: Accept via PayPal with no fees assessed to the buyer.

I've done my best to include all the details about the camera included photos. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask!

Thanks for the bumps - what a great group!

I've had some interest, but no commitments yet, so time for a price reduction I guess - reduced to $550 shipped to any US address.
