[SOLD] K10D + kit lens - $500...with a catch.

I've decided that I can't justify having two camera bodies with all my untimely expenses, so I'm selling my K10D and kit lens. I bought them in late November, and the body just passed 1600 actuations. I barely used the kit lens at all and it's in flawless condition.

The K10D, however, is not. There are some slight markings on the bottom from my Gorillapod. No big deal there and they may not even be permanent. The real issue is the mirror. There are some spots on it that will not blow off. If it's just persistent dust or tiny nicks, I can't tell. I'll admit that they could be the result of improper cleaning one day . The spots are tiny but definitely visible, and I'd estimate there to be about 10 of them. The bottom line is that they don't affect metering or pictures (I've confirmed that it's not sensor dust) and besides this defect, the body is in awesome condition.

If you don't mind the mirror problem, I'd say this is a great deal at $475 shipped. All manuals, boxes, warranty cards, CDs, the battery, charger, everything is included. I called Pentax to feel out what it would cost to service. If it's just a heavy cleaning it would be around $60, while a full mirror replacement would be about $150. I've tried to price them accordingly. I would really prefer to keep these together, and I'll entertain reasonable offers but I'd rather keep it and have it serviced myself than sell it for too cheap. I am a first time seller here on the forums, but I've got great feedback on eBay with the same username and I have some buyer feedback here as well.

Please don't hesitate to ask questions. I'm around computers all day so you'll receive a response quickly. Thanks!

I'd love to think so, but I think given the circumstances (that it may be something I did to it), I don't believe it would be covered.
