Pentax K-5 Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax K-5

Asking Price
295.00 USD

Item Location
Hanover, PA (United States)

Item Description
K-5 DSLR (body only) in original box with all original contents included, some items still in original wrapping. Two slight surface blemishes near lens mount which are hard to see unless you look for them. Two slight hairline surface scratches on rear LCD panel. Nothing affecting functionality or performance. Otherwise, looks and performs like new. I upgrade every two or three years otherwise I'd keep this. It has been completely reliable - a Pentax workhorse. I have used it almost 100% of time in continuous shooting mode for sports so it has a shutter count of 193,000 over three years of flawless use.

Are you the original owner of the item being sold?

it fires like a machine-gun in continuous model. My K20D had >250,000 before I retired it. It worked flawlessly when I gave it away. The continuous shooting speed on K20D is much slower than K5.

The shots number scared me a bit. Still thinking about should I get it or not since I won't be able to return it back if something wrong with it (I'm not in US - my aunt in CA can receive it and send it to me)

193,000 is not unusual for a serious shooter over a period of three years. I hit the 200,000 mark after 1-1/2 years with my K-R.

I'm checking on Pentax service in my area to see if they can replace the shuttle if it die on me in the future or not. Hope they can.

PM sent.
