Pentax K-3 with box and other extra accessories Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax K-3 with box and other extra accessories

Asking Price
300.00 USD

Item Location
Montreal (Canada)

Item Description

Up for sale is one of my two Pentax K-3 camera body. I've been using it for a few years in casual and professional settings. I originally bought it from a fellow forum member.

Description - body and functionality

Pentax K-3 body in excellent cosmetic condition (no dent, dings).
Rear screen has some very light surface scratch that you can see under the right light condition (when the screen is turned off). Everything works as it should, except for the top screen (read below).

(1) Functionality
The top screen doesn't display all rows properly, meaning you mostly have to guess the values displayed. I purchased it this way knowingly and the situation hasn't changed since then (couple of years back). I've used the camera in weddings as the main photographer and it hasn't caused me any trouble, but I'd sometime have to look at my shooting values on the rear screen or through the viewfinder.
(see pictures)

(2) Cosmetic
Previous owner had a piece of black tape on the Pentax letters in front of the camera. I removed the tape, but there is some black residue on the letters. It never bothered me, so I didn't put much effort in getting rid of it, but your mileage may vary. I expect it can be clean without too much effort using some lighter fluid or something similar.
(see pictures)

(3) Cosmetic
Original Pentax eye cup has a small tear in the upper left corner. I've never used it though, as I use the o-m53 eye cup instead (included). The original Pentax eye cup is included and still perfectly functional.

Shutter count : 19,584

What's included
  • 2 original Pentax batteries
    1 Wasabi brand battery (works just like the original battery in my opinion)
    1 original Pentax charger
    1 small black strap
    original Pentax box, with owner's manuel and other paperwork
    1 O-me53 magnifying eye cup with original box

Asking price for everything

300 USD

Canada and USA : 15$
Worldwide : please pm me.
