[SOLD] Pentax K10D + DA 16-45/F4 + Bag

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax K10D + DA 16-45/F4 + Bag

Asking Price
$650

Item Description
Pentax K10D camera and lens are just over 1 year old, probably 8000+ pictures taken, and I am still using the camera.

DA 16-45 lens is IMHO the sharpest F4 Pentax wide to normal zoom. Lens is very sharp with open aperture (f4) and very useful with Shake Reduction camera for available light photography.
I will include K10D body, DA 16-45/4 lens, whether protected Case Logic shoulder bag 500MB ATP SD card to get you started.
Note this lens is not the kit lens, I cost me almost $400 alone, it is way above optical quality of DA 18-55 3.5-5.6 kit lens, the difference in sharpness is huge.

There are no scratches or other defects on lens elements or lens body. Lens and camera have boxes and manuals and cables and CD.
I also have extended 5 year MAC warranty for the camera body and will include it in the package.

There's one blem on the camera. It is the famous K10D bottom cover corner crack. You can see it in one of the pictures, right in the corner. I didn't bump it, this is well known manufacturing defect of a lot of K10Ds. This defect has been discussed a handfull of times here and on DP review. I decided not to send camera to Pentax for bottom cover replacement, instead I went to the local camera shop and asked technician to fixed it. The guy fixed the crack with a glue, it cost me $10 and it was done in a few hours. It's been fine since, for more then a year now. Anyways, I thoght i needed to mention this. Everything else in this kit is in excellent condition.
Despite the bottom cover crack camera takes excellent pictures, see the samples I took with it.

Price is $650 for everything, paid by Pay Pal, shipping to PayPal confirmed address only. Or you can pay cash and pick it up in NYC.

If you separate, the DA 16-45mm could interest me…

L60

I forgot to mention. The original focusing screen on this k10D was replaced with L60 focusing screen for better exposure accuracy with manual focus K mount lenses.
