Pentax K-3 Body with Under 5K Clicks

I decided to sell all my Pentax gear and switch to a lighter system (Sony A7), so I am selling my Pentax K-3 body. This camera has under 5K clicks, is perfectly functional, and produces amazing images. The body of the camera has 2 cosmetic issues:

1) The main LCD has a weird fogging visible when LCD is turned off. This issue has been since I got the camera 7 months ago (I got it used off eBay just before Christmas last year) and has NOT become worst over time. This issue does not affect menu/image viewing and is purely cosmetic. I posted on this forum about this issue (I found 2 more people with the same problem on their Pentax K-3). The link to my post is below.

2) There is a "brassing" spot and a couple of very small scratches at the bottom of the camera (shown in the last image). I used this camera on my hiking and backpacking trips in The Cascades and the body got few minor "bruises."

Other than the above mentioned cosmetic issues, the camera looks nice and is 100% functional. Every function is spot on. The shutter count is under 5K. If you are curios about the images that this puppy can produce, please check my treads. I posted some images from my recent backpacking trip.

I am asking $490, which will include USPS Priority Mail (CONUS only) shipping and PayPal fee. I would consider shipping outside the US, but you will have to pay for USPS Express Mail shipping, and that can easily exceed $50, depending on in what country you live. The camera comes in the original retail box with genuine Pentax battery and charger, strap, body cap, user manual in English, a CD, and some paperwork. I will also include an additional battery (Vivitar brand and it works as good as the Pentax one).
