Pentax K-r with 18-55mm Kit Lens White with Acme Cover, O-ME53 Eyecup

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
FS: Pentax K-r with 18-55mm Kit Lens White with Acme Cover, O-ME53 Eyecup

Asking Price
220.00 USD

Item Location
San Jose (United States)

Item Description
Fantastic condition. Surprsingly, this has not needed any lens adjustments for the lenses that I have! Comes with white hot shoe cover and Aki-Asahi leatherette covering for the thumb grip which helps considerably. Also includes O-ME53 magnifying eyecup, white chevron Acme camera soft case, box, battery, charger, and papers - but no manual. Lens cap is aftermarket. Original, never used Pentax camera strap is also included.

*Note: Almost forgot to mention... This has an intermittent e-dial issue, but is easily fixed by spraying electrical contact cleaner into the e-dial grooves every year or so, or by just spinning it for a while. Seems to be okay right now and hasn't proven to be a huge issue for me.

It is a known issue. It hasn't been bad enough for me to take apart, contact cleaner or spinning has worked extremely well.

That is a very cool looking K-r. I've always loved the Stormtrooper white, but I ended up with the black version. Love mine! And my wife loves it too - small, light, great IQ, improved AF over previous cameras, what's not to love

I've got the stormtrooper K-x, and given the few extra features of the K-r, this would make a great first camera or a good backup.

The K-r is an awesome little camera!

I bought mine as an addition to the K-7 at B&H in the big holiday snowstorm of 2010...

Pms replied to. Looking more closely, I do see some light scratches on the bottom of the camera. They are difficult to see and capture without side-lighting. The most obvious one is the one across the battery cover. Here are some images:

This camera has accompanied me on several trips. I will add electrical contact cleaner and make sure the e-dial is fully functioning prior to shipping. (I'd send the electrical contact cleaner too, but's it's an aerosol!)
