500.00 USD (with 80-320 and 50mm f/2 lenses)

Item Description

I'm selling my K-5 since I upgraded to the K-5 II s, and I don't have any need for it any more. I bought it used less than a year ago, with probably 8-10k actuations. There were quite a few minor scratches on the bottom of the camera when I bought it, and I might have added a few of my own. The hot-shoe also has several scratches in it, but the rest of the body is basically like new. With only ~13k shutter actuations, it's barely broken in!

This is what you're getting:

  • PENTAX K-5
  • SMC PENTAX M 50mm F/2 lens
  • --The original box and contents--
  • Pentax K-5 Operating Manual (English)
  • Pentax software CD
  • Original Neck strap
  • Original Battery & Charger
  • A/V cable
  • USB cable
  • Serial No. Card
  • Pentax extended warranty card. (The camera was purchased new from Adorama on 02/05/2013, along with a "PENTAX 2 Year Extended Warranty".[The original owner left the receipt in the box, that's how I know. ])

The picture above was taken with the 50mm F/2 lens that I'm selling along with the camera. All of the rest were taken with my 50mm f1.7

Sorry about the dust on the LCD, I didn't notice till after I had taken the pictures. It has a screen protector on the LCD screen, as well as one on the top panel.

This picture is intended to show the scratches visible on the bottom of the camera. I'm not sure what the previous owner was using it for, but they are all just little hairline scratches. I purposely photographed at an angle with hard side-lighting to make them show up enough to see them "in all their glory".

The shutter count, according to the PentaxForums shutter counter is: 13,393

I've used it mainly with the 18-135 kit lens, but I've also used it for some specialty macro photography, namely snowflakes! Here's a little album I put together with several sample shots.


Here are a few shots of the 50mm f2 lens for sale...

I've also got a SMC Pentax-FA 4.5-5.6 80-320mm lens (Silver Edition) for sale. I bought it from the marketplace several months ago, but I never really used it much, so I figured I might as well get rid of it. It's in very good condition.
