Silver Pentax K-3 (not fully functional - read description) Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Silver Pentax K-3 (not fully functional - read description)

Asking Price
60.00 USD

Item Location
Indiana (United States)

Item Description
This is a Premium Silver Edition of the of K-3, approximately 19000 shutter activations. During a rainy soccer shoot, water or condensation caused damage to the light metering. I sent in to Precision for a repair estimate which came back at $700 to replace the main flex circuit and CPU, finder LCD, and photo sensor block. I chose not to pay that much to repair it, but I did some work on it myself to no avail. You can read the story here.

Need photos of K-3 with top cover removed -

The camera works in manual mode or live view, but photos taken in other modes are overexposed since the meter thinks the scene is dark.

The camera could be used for parts (cosmetically it is in good condition with only minor scratches), sent in for repairs, or used by someone who likes to use live mode or the sunny 16 rule. I decided to let it go since I got a K-1ii, and still have a fully functional K-3 in black.

I am selling the silver D-BG5 grip under a separate listing, but would take $140 for both.
