Original battery charger
All originally included cables

Why I'm selling it


Frankly I have too many cameras. I have a K-3, and have held off from selling the K-5 because I don't want to give up the features it has that the K-3 doesn't (ISO 80, less noise at higher ISO, physical metering and AF type switches, bigger viewfinder window). I've held off until now. It's time to part ways unfortunately.


Condition


Near perfect. The body is immaculate. No visible scratches, wear, or marks. All buttons, doors, and switches operate as new. The one imperfection, the one thing keeping me from listing this as "mint" is the tiniest of marks on the back LCD. The ttwo marks are as small and insignificant as a speck of dust. They are not visible when the screen is on and I have to tilt the camera at the perfect angle in order to see the marks in the light. I have documented the marks in an attached picture. They are circled in orange.


Since I've owned it...

It has never been dropped nor fallen.
Has never bumped into anything.
Has never been in dusty, wet, nor moist conditions.
Has never been excessively hot nor cold.
Always has had front and rear caps in place and in it's box when not in use.
Has lived in a smoke-free home.
I have literally only used it once and has only been taken out of the box twice, the second time to take pics for this listing.


Strap


The camera came with a black aftermarket strap. It looks unused. I will give you the Pentax strap from my K-3, which too is unused in addition to the aftermarket strap if I can find it. My room is a mess and I'm sure it's around here somewhere.


Shipping


Shipping to the continental United States is free. I will ship internationally but it will cost extra.


About me


I have bought and sold successfully on the forum for the last nine months. Unfortunately for me I have had far more transactions than are recorded in my feedback (my fault, I didn't make it a point to give/receive it for a while). Also my ebay feedback is 287, 100%.


About the K-5...

In case you didn't know the K-5 is pretty amazing. It currently has a higher sensor rating on DxOmark than all Fuji, Panasonic, and Olympus cameras, all crop sensor Sony ILC's, most Nikons, and meets or beats every single Canon camera ever made!

Oh, and lastly it beat out the Nikon D7000 and Canon 60D, the big competition of it's generation of high-end APS-C dslrs on DPReview.

The camera is sold pending payment. The forum is set up in a way that it hid my "sale pending" comment right above my attached pics. Sorry everyone.
