Pentax K-3 Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax K-3

Asking Price
285.00 USD

Item Location
Trumbull (United States)

Item Description
Pentax K-3 - Shutter Count: 38, XXX (currently 37,548 and it is my primary camera)

I purchased this during the "fire sale" of K-3s after the K3II came out. I've owned it since it was new and purchased it with the 18-135 (not included). This camera has been spectacular. The K3 really is a legend, much like the K5 it replaced.

Condition: Mechanically it is nearly perfect. I have never had any issues with it. No shutter slap, no blank screen, no battery issues. It has been a solid workhorse that has done everything I have asked it to do. And it has taken some real gems.
Exterior it has some nics in the paint in multiple spots and has a few tiny scratches on the screen (not visible with screen on). The focusing has been awesome, and I've never had a lens that wouldn't focus right. I think the most I required was my DA*55 required a +3 adjustment. Other than that, I didn't have to focus adjust anything on this camera.

Sensor is clean and rest of interior is clean.

The one issue is that the on/off switch can be a tiny bit stiff. Never been an issue at all, but just letting you know. It started from when I went out on a boat in an ocean bay and got a little bit of salt water on it (with a DA* lens on). It has gotten better since then, but since I've owned it since new I wanted you all to know.

Comes with 2 batteries (1 original, 1 wasabi), the original charger, original strap, and the original K3 box

I'm selling because I'm moving to full frame.

$285 shipped in the US. That is a great price for the capability and reliability of this camera.
