Item Description
Time to sell my wonderful K-5. This camera really got me back into taking pictures since I was still using the K10D and getting frustrated by its limitations. After picking up the K-3, I've decided the K-01 will be my second body until the next flagship arrives.

I purchased this camera in July of 2012 as you can see from the receipt below. It includes the extended warranty, although it's still not official that it transfers to the next owner. Of course, I'd be willing to be the middleman if you'd like to utilize it.

It has a shutter count of 2928 (having the K-01 and Q around kept actuations lower) and is in perfect working order. I've never had a single issue with it like mirror flop or sensor stains. It's a Ricoh-tagged camera so it's outside of the serial range of affected units.

Cosmetically, there are two wear spots. One is on the lens release button (again, Ricoh serial so that has never gone missing ), the other is a small scuff on the LCD from where I loaded my bag like a moron. You can see a little paint wear on the hotshoe if you look really closely. I don't think you'll find a better one.

Comes with absolutely everything in the box including an OEM battery, charger, cables, manual, unused strap, etc etc etc. Only the battery and charger were opened.

SOLD (For price reference, sold for $460 shipped) SOLD

Next up is the corresponding grip. I purchased it on ebay about a week after getting the K-5.

It works perfectly.

I can see a little wear from using the tripod mount but it's hard to notice.

Comes with everything including box, Ricoh paperwork, AA and Li-Ion trays, contact cover, etc.

SOLDLooking for $140 + actual shipping.SOLD

Hello, insured international shipping for an item of this weight and value is between $50-60 for most countries. Expensive, for sure, but they haven't invented teleportation yet
