Pentax K5 w/3rd party grip, Pentax remote & OME53 magnifier (Katzeye screen sold)

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax K5 w/3rd party grip, Pentax remote & OME53 magnifier

Asking Price
220 USD

Item Location
Vancouver (Canada)

Item Description
Prices are fairly firm, and will be in USD. I am always willing to negotiate and will accept reasonable offers, etc. Canadian buyers can pay in the equivalent amount of CAD if they would like.
  • Payment is via Paypal (as the seller, fees will of course be my responsibility).
  • Shipping will be with Canada Post, and to save time, I will make it a flat rate for $15 to Canada, and $20 to CONUSA. I will ship ONLY to PayPal verified addresses. Canadian and US buyers preferred--I will ship pretty well anywhere, but be advised that Canada Post is not cheap. PM me for a quote to other shipping destinations.

Here is a great Pentax K5 bundle with the following extras included:
  • Pentax OME-53 1.2x viewfinder magnifier in excellent shape (around $40 new)
  • Pentax-F Remote (genuine Pentax model) in excellent condition (around $30 new)
  • Bower 3rd party battery grip in good shape although the writing has worn off a couple buttons. It comes with both the AA battery adapter and regular one.
  • An extra third party K5 battery (both the original and this one hold charges well)

Included in this kit is the K5 body with just over 20k shutter clicks on it. I purchased the K5 on this very forum a few years ago. The body is in great shape. It comes boxed with all the accessories (strap, charger, original battery, etc)

Sold Katzeye ScreenI would like to sell this K5 setup as a kit before parting it out if it won't sell as a kit. I am sure there are some fans of manual focussing that could use this camera kit as an easy way to jump right into it without a hassle.

I purchased a Katz-Eye manual focussing screen for this K5 while they were still in business for just over $100 USD. It has the split prism and microprism collar and has no additional markings. See additional details here: Pentax K-3 K-5, K-5II, K-7, K-30, K-50 & K-500 KatzEye Focusing Screen

I installed this focussing screen myself and shimmed it/calibrated it with my Sigma 30mm f1.4 while I still had it. I used it with the Pentax K 50mm 1.2 and 85mm 1.8 and it works/worked great. Especially with the included OME-53 1.2x magnifyer for the viewfinder. Everything just pops into focus very nicely.

The original focussing screen is included if you need/want to switch it back, along with the Katzeye box, tools, and original receipt.
