K20D w/ grip, Katzeye, and Mestos L-bracket

Item for Sale
K20D w/ grip, Katzeye, and Mestos L-bracket

Asking Price
350.00 USD

Item Location
Burlington, CT (United States)

Item Description
I know there are a few K20's for sale on here lately, but mine may be a little different. I bought the K20D new as a backup body. It only has 2960 clicks on the shutter. It was used mostly inside. I can't remember ever taking this body outside. It includes 2 original Pentax Batteries, as well as 1 third party battery. Also included are: the Pentax grip which I bought new for the body, Katzeye split prism screen w/ Optibrite treatment (currently installed in camera, original screen is also included), Mestos L-bracket for use with the grip on the body, Camera Armor rubberized cover for body & lens (brand new unused), (1) 8GB & (1) 16GB Transcend SD cards, & the Magic Lantern guide for the camera.

All items were purchased new by me. Everything that came with the body & listed accessories is included. All manuals, cables, hot shoe cap, eye piece cover, ect..., it's all there & in like new condition. I take excellent care of my gear, and as I said, this setup was a backup, and didn't get much use. I have a couple of K-5 II's, so this body will probably not get used again. No problems at all, and the sensor is clean. No dust dust spots that I can see on any of the images I've taken recently. One thing I will note is there is a little piece of dirt or something on the Katzeye screen in the upper middle left side. It is not near the split prism part. It must have gotten on there during the installation. It does not affect the images at all. I tried to photograph the viewfinder, but the shots didn't come out well. I don't know how it got in there because I was incredibly careful while installing it. I have them in both K-5's, and one of them has a little piece of dirt in the viewfinder as well. So it must be me I suppose.

Shipping, and insurance to anywhere in the lower 48 states is included with my asking price. The Mestos & Katzeye are over $300 alone if you were to purchase these.

I am actively looking for a 645 SMC-A 35mm lens to use with my Mirex tilt / shift setup. I would be interested in a trade for that lens. If you have one, send me a message & we can work it out.

There are many things I loved about the K20 that I miss with the K-5's, including the size, (I always seem to hit the wheel on the grip of the K-5 with my pinky when I'm shooting), and the dedicated switch for the SR system. This is still a fantastic camera by any standard. You'd be hard pressed to find a package like this in this condition.

Thanks for looking!

George

You willing to sell as separate items? If so, what you asking for the grip?

Cregar,

If I got offers for the camera & Mestos separately, I would consider breaking everything up.

Thanks.

K20D, grip, Katz Eye, ...

Do you still have this for sale? What is the use of the Mestos gadget? Thanks, Phil

The mestos is an arca swiss type tripod plate that allows you to mount the camera on a tripod in either landscape or portrait orientation. The kit is still available.

Thanks,

George

One final price reduction before I just end up keeping it in my car or something
