How much is a Pink K-X w/ 18-55 kit lens worth?

Is it okay to ask that here?

I've been thinking about selling it.

Low $300's, I'd say.

If it does not sell I'd pay $170 delivered for the body if it had pretty low shutter count and is in great shape. Got enuf of the kit lens to last a lifetime. They are worth 40-50. Maybe a lady would like it. If it was black I would pay more along the above prices mentioned.

Guess you made a typo. Low 300s minus 50 bucks equals about 270, not 170

In general, most k-x I have seen on the market currently sell for about 300-350 depending on condition, shutter count, and overall package. Some people may want the pink version more, but I have not seen other colors selling for more.

Then I feel your comment in this thread is completely unwarranted? The OP is asking what is the going price for a pink k-x. The going price for any decent k-x is between $300 and $350. Just because you don't want a pink one doesn't give you the right to tell the OP you would only pay $170 for it. That's just rude.

Actually the K-X appears to have been discontinued everywhere and seems to be going up in price. I just looked on eBay after someone said they'd pay only $170 for it. I see colored one lens kits going for $360-450; black ones for about the same. Well thanks for the replies.

This is great information. I am interested in purchasing the pink pentax kx from you if you haven't sold it.

We can discuss the pricing also.

she actually is holding off on selling because its her back up...i think she actually went back to using it...not sure though...i tried buying it off of her too...the easiest thing is to look at yahoo japan (then use a courier to have it shipped to u, if ure not in japan). there are k-rs in pink but no K-x...I found a variation of white and pink for the amount that I was offering for this one. Good luck on ur search!
