Pentax K3 - $375

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax K3 - $375

Asking Price
375.00 USD

Item Location
Arlington, Va (United States)

Item Description
The time has come for me to be realistic. I shoot film (Pentax MX and ZX5) WAY more than I do digital so my K3 just sits in the Pelican case unused. When I do shoot digital, is family stuff and my first gen RX100 is more than enough for that.

Specs:
K3, ~8500 clicks, fantastic condition, stored in a padded Pelican case when not in use. Every single thing on it works. The only negative is that the word 'MENU' and 'INFO' on the buttons is slightly worn off (you can see in the photos).

What comes with it?
- K3
- Box, booklet, strap
- Charger with 2 batteries
- Pentax magnifying eyepiece (OME53) <- this makes focusing manually a breeze as well as composing easier

I am willing to ship in ConUS. I am looking for $375 all in. Shipping is dependent upon where you are located.

I like to see photos taken with the body whenever I buy a used camera so here are a few:

I think you missed posting the photos of the K3.

They are there. They show up for me on two different computers and on my phone.

You’re right. I just checked and they are not showing. I will rehost then and update it. Very odd

Is the original eyepiece included or just the magnifying one?

No, I do not think that there is an original eyepiece. This slides into place rather than 'install'. If you do not like it, you just slide it off, I believe. I use a lot of A lenses and this made manually focusing SO much better. Plus, it give your nose a little extra room so it is not smashed against the LCD.

Bump for an exceptionally clean K3 with a low shutter count (compared to others listed)

I'd say it sold. The last time this user logged on was early in February and the last post made was mid December of last year. Also several hosted photos are now dead ends.

Sorry, it sold quite some time ago. I no longer have any Pentax DSLR equipment so I do not check back very often. My Pentax stuff is all film now.

thanks.


As K-3 is now a dead line/plagued with "issues" and no longer in the Ricoh catalog, K-1 is the only up choice, K-70 a cripple, I think I will sell off all my Pentax and buy a Nikon (finally) D750 (used), complete with quite a good lens for less than the base price of the K-1 and have done with it.

I sold all my Pentax DSLR gear and bought a D610 (used), an 80-200/ 2.8, 50/ 1.4, 85/ 1.8, 18- 35/ 3.5, and 60/ 2.8 macro. The real reason I sold off the Pentax stuff is that the go to film body for me became the Nikon F4 and I got tired of carrying two systems around. I used to carry the K3, the Sigma 70-200/ 2.8 HSM, Tamron 17-50/ 2.8 (highly underrated lens), and then Nikon duplicates for my F4 and that sucked big time.

DO what is best for you. Pentax no longer made sense for me. I still shoot my MX with A primes but thats it.

You may want to mark the thread sold.

Plagued with issues? While I would ask what this thread in the sales area is the wrong place to discuss. I'd be interested in hearing about this in one of the other areas of the site.
