Pentax K-5, high shutter count, mirror sticks sometimes, otherwise good.

Asking Price
185.00 USD

Item Location
Montreal (Canada)

Item Description
Selling my K-5... Looks good and works perfectly -most of the time....

Seems to be developing the sticky mirror (mirror motor?) issue which plagues some K-5s - mentioned in the link below and in other places if you search:

https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/58-troubleshooting-beginner-help/228143-k...-depleted.html

It happens more often when I do a burst of shots - and can usually be cleared by hitting live view a few times and/or removing the battery for a bit. Camera is still useable - just not necessarily reliable... And hopefully it won't get worse.

Have I sold you on it yet? Hmm... +1 for honesty!

Other than that, it works perfectly (usually) and is in clean and good condition. Some marks by the strap attachments. Last time I looked shutter count was around 51,700.

Includes K-5 body, charger, two batteries, original box and an OEM Pentax strap if you want one - I was using a different one.

Price is in USD and shipping is $20 to USA or Canada. Ask for others...
