Pentax K5 and Kr cameras with defects

Pentax K5 and Kr cameras recently bought with defects. Sensors just cleaned.

- K5 has 400 shots only (exif count), but SR is not working. That means if you activate it, sensor don't move (nor does the sensor shaking/cleaning function), and sometimes some pictures get blurry because camera thinks it's working. Instead if you deactivate the SR function, the camera takes fast and sharp pictures and takes no time to calculate SR things, so i've also discovered with my K3 that disabling SR makes shooting faster.
Offered with no battery, strap or anything more than the camera.
$220 Canadian shipped

- Kr has 60 shots only (exif count), but flash does not light.
I have a clone battery adapter I can add,
$170 Canadian shipped
SOLD

Filters withdrawn from sale

For all items: Local pickup at Ottawa have a discount., I accept PayPal but the fee is payed by the buyer

Prices adjusted, shipping included now in the price. When I say shipping included I mean to Canada

EDIT: moderator asked me to correct the phrasing, I did not meant shipping outside Canada.

I've had all the DA limiteds: 15, 21, 35 Macro, 40 and 40XS, 70
This is the first zoom that I've seen as a prime replacer, plus is WR. The range is "limited" no pun intended but then again you have good quality at max aperture across the range, and with my memory of 16-50 not.
No more travel with limiteds and exchanging them on the road = dust.

The problem is I need money right now. I sold the K3 and kept a K5 with defect as main camera, will be reducing gear.
This lens has had bad reviews, in the Spanish pentax forum I think I was the first to got it, and it's a perfect copy as far as I understand (no plane or borders, but no expert), and I've never known a 16-50 owner stating that had a perfect copy, for me it's a unicorn. So I don't understand the negative bias, maybe it's the quality control or first reviews got bad copies.
Take a look at the "limited zoom club" here.

Hello! Are you still selling your K-5 with the SR defect? I might be interested. I am in the Waterloo area of Ontario - too far to pickup easily, but close enough to ship! I look forward to hearing from you. Thanks, from Pamela

Just testing the K-r now ... if anyone was watching it, you're very likely to be disappointed!
