Pentax K-5, spare battery.

Boston (United States)

Item Description
Hi there!

This K-5 is a great opportunity for owners of older Pentax cameras to get with the 16-megapixel sensor times! This camera is still a powerhouse when it comes to imaging. I've taken some amazing shots with this beauty.

$375 includes shipping anywhere in North America. I'll even insure it so you can sleep soundly as it comes to your door!

I bought this camera from PF user deadwolfbones, who I know in the real world. Right now it has around 12k shutter actuations on it, so it's easily good for another 90k at the very least. It's barely even a teenager in terms of Pentax bodies go. It's been handled carefully, with a GGS screen protector on the rear display, so there are no scratches. Physically, you can tell it's a used camera with a few scratches and nicks here and there on its magnesium chassis but it's never been dropped. The most major ding is by the Menu button...see the photos for a detail.

I posted this camera with a custom focusing screen, but I just replaced it with the stock one and it works great. This camera had the dreaded sensor spot issue when it was younger but it was taken care of before I bought the camera (when it was still under warranty) so it's completely trouble free.

Includes: two D-LI90 batteries, original strap, cables, charger, box, documentation.

Hi nms_photog,
I just double checked and I was mistaken. It's not a Katz Eye. I'll change the ad to reflect that. It's a custom Canon Ec focusing screen with Pentax focus points from focusingscreen.com I have the original focusing screen with me as well.
