Help with Pentax K20D Kit

Hello.

Found K20D kit on sale on local photo forum.

325$. 27k shots. Only problem - sometimes (once in 1-2-3 weeks?) first shot come out blank and camera freezes. Can be fixed via restarting camera.

Right off the bat, I'd say look at your card.
Do you have another SD card you could try?
Does it do the same thing when you format the card first(first shot)?
Also, are you using a grip?

Oh, looks like i named thread wrong.

I just thinking about to buy this one I mean, 325$ sounds okay. Just wanted to be ensured.

Seller said what this problem alwayas was present (from the day he got this camera brand new). I think with all cards, ets.

And there is way to find if cammera will be freezed or not - if you turned it on and live-view works ok - no freeze. If live-view don't work it will freez. Looks like a software problem for me.

Depending on the kit, I'd say the price is too high.
That being said, there are so many K20D's being sold in the market place that I honestly wouldn't recommend buying into a potentially malfunctioning one.

I'd skip it and look for a more reliable deal.

I've been looking for another k20d for no more than that price, but there don't seem to be too many available on eBay.

Yeah, also i live in Ukraine (ah stupid me, forgot to mention). K20D body/kit cost around 400-600$ there.
And shipping from other countries can be brutal.

I sold a very good body for $275.00 CA a few weeks ago.
Keep and eye out in the market place here, they come-up quite often.

PS. The best time to buy used Pentax bodies is when announcements are made. Everyone wants to ditch their old products to raise capital for what's coming-up. - perfect timing.
