[SOLD] (AUS) Pentax K-7 body

PentaxForums.com Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
(AUS) Pentax K-7 body

Asking Price
AUD$1325 - now reduced to AUD$1250

Item Description
I recently bought this brand new, unused from another forum member who had been given it by Pentax - read here: https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/everything-else/73728-my-compensation-mak...ree-k-7-a.html

As "Touchmyichi" promised, it was perfectly brand new - amazing camera!

I have since used it (so it is technically no longer brand new in box), BUT I have only taken very few shots - less than 200. It is still in brand new condition.

I paid AUD$1375 for this in total - (my loss - your gain).

I'm also including a free 2gb Sandisk Extreme III SD card.

This is great for an Aussie looking for a bargain K-7 - you won't have to play shipping/customs "roulette" like I did - i.e. risk it being damaged during O/S shipping, or risk having to pay a big customs import duty/GST because it is over the $1000 threshold (incidentally, I won the game of roulette for this item!).

Comes with box and all included accessories (though the plug on the charger is for the USA - easily fixed with a cheap ($2) adaptor.)

Pick up from me in Sydney (Sutherland area) is welcome (and preferred), though I'm happy to ship elsewhere in Australia.

Reasonable offers will be considered for a quick sale, but please don't waste time with low-balling.

Are you selling or trading this item?

I'll also throw in a free Sandisk Extreme III 2gb SD card. This is genuine - so has the fast read/write speeds the sandisk extremes are famous for - perfect for this camera! Comes with plastic carry case too.

So where do you stand in regards to warranty in Australia ???

My understanding is its a grey market camera and Kennedy's won't honour it, and since you managed to avoid duty and taxes, I would hazard to guess there is no chance of warranty unless sent back to the US. ???

I could be wrong, but I don't think so.

You may be correct about Kennedy's not honouring grey import warranties - I know that's true with Sigma lenses but am not sure about Pentax gear.
This hasn't stopped me from buying my previous 2 cameras from the USA too - a Samsung GX-10 and a Pentax K20d. In my thinking, failure within 12 months is such a small risk (and even less so in this case - I have tested this camera and it is perfect) that the price premium for buying local is not worth it.
Each to their own.

Any future questions, please do PM me.

Cheers,
Dave

Final price reduction - AUD$1250 - and that includes the extra Sandisk Extreme III 2gb SD card. I can include the Sigma 17-70mm lens for an additional $350 if the buyer wants it. That is one awesome kit for $1600!

If it doesn't sell at this price, I'll try my luck on ebay.

Thanks
