Item Description
Hello! I'm selling my abused K-30 I've had since 2012.

It's ugly and a bit damaged. It's been just about everywhere with me, and it shows. I overestimated Pentax durability a few times.

It's missing the diopter adjustment and flash popup button. Both were covered by hot glue as it sealed it and I was poor at the time it happened (no warranty coverage since it was my fault) and I haven't had time or a need to fix it. I don't use the popup flash. And the battery catch is broken, but the door does work fine.

The flash can be pried up, but won't fire (battery depleted warning)
The sensor could use a cleaning, but I don't trust myself to do so, and at wider apertures, it's not much of an issue.

Beyond those issues, it works fine. And many of my for sale posts on this site are taken with this camera.
Shutter count is 14,192
Includes AA adapter and S type focusing screen from (hence the perhaps high price)

Feel free to make me an offer.

There's a lot of character on that camera (and probably stories to go along with it), which is awesome! Good luck on the sale.
