Item Description
I bought this kit from the original owner almost new. It had less than 1000 clicks, as far as I could tell (I don't have a tool to check shutter count, so I'm going by the running count that was on it when I bought it). It appeared and operated like new when I bought it. Now, with (I think) about 8000 clicks, it still appears and operates like new.

If anyone with a better exif tool than mine would like to verify shutter count, you can use the pics of the 18-55 glass. Those were two of the last photos taken with this camera. If you do check, a reply in this thread with an accurate count would be much appreciated. Thank you.

The only sign of wear I can see on the camera is on the printed "OK" on the OK button. One leg is faded. Otherwise, I see not scratches, scuffs or wear. Please let the pictures be your guide.

This comes in the original packaging with all you see in the photos:
Body
18-55mm lens (in perfect condition)
battery (with very long life)
charger
A/V cable
Manual
strap
eye-cap

ALSO INCLUDED:
split screen with prism collar (not Katzeye--original screen is in camera, split-screen is in the blue box)
Two 4gig Sandisc Ultra II memory cards
A very handy, small Sandisc card reader

You won't often find a cleaner K10D. Focus is spot on. No issues of any kind that I'm aware of. Thanks for looking. Pics on their way below

Anyway, this lens prompted me to put my camera on a tripod, and run some tests. I found that the camera slightly backfocuses on all my lenses. My question is this: if I run the debug program and adjust the focus, will it affect my split-screen focus? Right now, the autofocus indicator and the prism split are right on with each other--both slightly behind (or would that be in front of?) the target.
OP made a post a while back about a possible backfocusing issue. It is probably resolved, but just putting it out there for his response.

Shadowfaxes. I pm-ed you a reply. There's no back focus. I found out my splitscreen was slightly off. I shimmed it with thin strips of scotch tape on the edges. The original focus screen is in the camera now.

Here's a link to a recent family gathering--an early Christmas at Thanksgiving. No time to refocus in a small room with little ones.

edit: I just want to add that I'm not selling this camera as is, but guaranteed as advertised.
