Pentax K-1 & 1.5x, 2x teleconverters

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax K-1 & 1.5x, 2x teleconverters

Asking Price
899.00 CAD

Item Location
Edmonton, AB (Canada)

Item Description
For sale (worldwide) or trade (local only) for photography gear (film and digital). Trades: Offer up something of equal value (or as partial payment), doesn't have to be Pentax.

Everything listed is included for the asking price. Pricing reflects the condition and fair market value of the K-1 at the time of posting. The extras bundled with the camera are value-adds and their omission does not affect the asking price of the K-1.

Price in Canadian dollars


Attached are are a couple samples to give you an idea of the performance characteristics of the camera. I'm no Ansel Adams. Lens used was the HD Pentax-D FA 15-30mm f/2.8 ED SDM WR which has since found a new home. Sunstar was at f/22, Aurora at f/2.8, both at 15mm. There is a youtube url on the aurora sample that will take you to the full time lapse if you're curious.


Pentax K-1 - Shutter Count 24015

For condition details see below
Includes:
Two D-LI90 batteries, one original and one aftermarket
Charger (aftermarket)
AC/DC tethered power adapter (aftermarket) that allows you to run the camera off of mains power. I modified the cable with a DC barrel plug to allow an appropriate external battery pack to be tapped in if you're in the field and want more power. I used the camera for lots of time lapses and would run it off of giant aftermarket 8800mAh Sony NP-F style batteries that could run the camera for hours.

Optics are all in excellent condition.


K-1 is fully functional, has undergone the following repairs:

1. Mode dial suffered a common failure due to a design fault and was repaired.

2. Outer shutter curtain sustained damage around 14500 actuations. As a replacement was unavailable the original curtain was repaired: the bent vanes were clamped under heat to restore their shape, a small tear in one of the vanes was repaired using an epoxy and the same clamping/heating process. I have racked up 9400 actuations post-repair without issue, and there is no indication of a loss of stability or degradation to the repair. I cannot warrant that it will persist for any specified period, only that to this day the camera has functioned properly and without issue after the repair. The curtain doesn't look pretty from the outside, but as far as the inside is concerned it functions properly.

To reiterate: the asking price already reflects the condition of the camera and is not subject to negotiation. If you are not comfortable with itís status then this isnít the listing for you.

Yep

I am interested in fair market value however. So Iíll kindly ask you to do some research and report back to me with the best deal you can find anywhere. Cheapest you can find it currently for sale anywhere. Then we have a baseline for negotiation.

Has the listing price been updated?
Do I understand correctly that the asking price is $899 CAD for the K-1 and teles but now without the 15-30mm?

Yes, he stated that the teles are "freebies".

I don't understand how Pentax would not fix the courtain. It should be the same as the K-1 II which is a current production camera. Is Pentax not supporting the maintenance of their current products? That is very concerning if true.

Still, a K-1 at 699 USD is dangerously close to something I'd be tempted to...
