Item Description
I have an extra K5IIS body with BG4 Battery Grip in EXCELLENT condition. I have gone full frame as of last Fall with the new Leica M-P 240, and am about to pick up a Fuji X-T1 system to lighten my load. I am keeping one of my IIs bodies and some lenses though for certain types of shooting. I am finding it silly to lug a heavy load around when I shoot when there are lighter more compact systems that perform as well or better than an SLR. That said, a Pentax K5 type body with a prime can be one hell of a compact, light system. I tend to use my big DA* lens on it, hence the weight issue. I am not ready to part with my DA* 60-250 lens, however.

I take very good care of my equipment. There may be some dust on the sensor (which is just part of routine) but I cannot find any but the very slightest wear marks on the body, and base of the grip. I have had a screen protector on the display since new. The camera has been sent to Pentax for service once or twice to have the sensor cleaned vs my attempting to do this myself. Although I do use a rocket blower. In any case, I am including the box, battery charger, battery, a bosstrap cross body strap....which by the way is one of the most comfortable, functional, and secure straps I have ever used. Also have the official Pentax strap which was never used. I may have some of the usb and hdmi cables that came with it.....(does anyone use those?)

This is a fantastic system for the beginner or advanced shooter that should be used and enjoyed vs sitting around in a bag like it is now. (yes I do power it one regularly and remove the batteries).

I believe that the Pentax K5IIs body will become a sought after classic because it is a unique system capable of very high resolution in in one of the sexiest, most rugged and easy handling bodies available. I have been so impressed with the IIS bodies, I didn't even consider a K3 or K3II, for reasons many other Pentax shooters understand very well. This is why I am not selling my new IIS body.

The body is shown with my DA70 attached, which is one hell of a lens by the way. I am not selling the lens.

Below is the exif data from Pentax Forums which shows manufacture date, shutter count, etc.

I will be happy to include a bag or holster with the body if the purchaser wants one. A newbie might need one.

I'll include some photos of the body, and shots taken with it using the DA70.

Just did my first shoot with my new Fuji X-T1 system and wow, what a shooter it is. The jpeg output is amazing. There is no way I am going to go back to lugging a heavy SLR around and I predict that new K1 is going wear some folks out. This K5IIs is more than tolerable with the right strap and a nice comfy one is included.
