K10D Good deal???

Hello! I've been looking at buying a 200D for quite some time. I saw the following ad on Craig's List and remembered that many of you prefer the K10D over the 200D. What do you think about the following system?

im selling new only used once pentax k10d (retail 850.00) with a tanron ar 10-200mm lens (retails for 350.00) and a external pentax af-360fgz flash (retails for (250.00). for all of this you can have for 850.00 even with a slr backpack and fits up to four lens in it. you can email me or call me. also have a picture can email interested buyers

Thoughts??

I'm not up to date on recent used prices, but you can check on ebay for recent prices for each. The one advantage for buying on Craigslist is that you can feel and touch the camera. Good luck!

If I understand you correctly, you are selling your new K10D to purchase a K200D? I don't know what others think around here, but to me, it is downgrading. The 10D is more featured and at higher "prosumer" level than the 200D.

Just my thoughts

It's an okay deal.

The K10D body can be found for between $400 and $600 used. The AF360FGZ can be bought brand new for $173 (amazon) and the Tamron 18-200mm new for $249 new w/ rebate (amazon).

Note that there is no such animal as a 10-200mm Tamron lens - that I'm aware of at least.

Pretty sure he was quoting an ad from Craig's List on the K10D package, and is considering the K10D rather than the K200D for his purchase.

I agree, $850 is an okay price, but not great. I was in the same situation as the OP a couple months ago. I had a k100d, and was thinking about getting either a K200D or used K10D. I ended up finding a great deal on a K200D. But the market place prices I was seeing then was about $500 for the K10 and $125 or so for the flash. That leaves $225 for the 18-200. I think the price of the used K10 have come down a bit since then as well.

It's CL...time to lowball

Offer like $750. If they don't take it and aren't willing to meet in the middle, move on and find your own deal.

You could get a brand new K20 and kit lens from Cameta for $900.
