[SOLD] [Worldwide] Cheap K20D (w/ autofocus issues) Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Cheap K20D (w/ autofocus issues)

Asking Price

Item Location

Item Description
So I have a K20D with some autofocus issues. At first the screw-driven AF wouldn't work with certain lenses I own, but at this point it seems that pretty much all of my screw-driven lens no longer autofocus properly with this body. My SDM 50-135, however, seems fine and focus perfectly (which I find somewhat ironic as I always figured if I was going to have an AF issue, it would be with my 50-135). The focus confirmation seems to also work fine for MF lenses.

So I thought about sending the camera in for repairs as the rest of the body is in excellent shape and the shutter count is only just over 4000 actuations. However, if someone happens to want an excellent condition K20D body, perhaps as a second body for use with some older MF lenses and/or SDM lenses, this might be a good way to get one for about half price.

Edit: I forgot to mention the camera body comes with the battery, charger and usb cable but no manual or box.

Are you the original owner of the item being sold?

Are you selling or trading this item?

All PM'd answered.

Quite a lot of interest in the body, so if you already PM'd me, please let me know as soon as possible if you'd like to buy it so I can offer it to the next person on the list if you are no longer interested. Anyone else who might be interested, feel free to PM me. However, it is likely that between the 7 people who already replied, the body is most likely (going to be) sold.

This site works by PMing the seller with your offer. He has the right to say yay or nay, depending on what your offer is. After you receive the item, you leave positive feedback and he does likewise.
