Pentax K2000 + 18-55 for $385???

.

I just won an e-bay prodigital2000 auction for a K2000 + 18-55 kit for $385 USD.

I haven't even priced this package, just stumbled on an auction about to end, bid, & won.

That seems like a tremendous price, amd I missing something? What do these packages usually go for on the bay??

Does it have the bundled external flash that the US are getting?

Even without a flash, I think that's a steal.

Even without the kit lens, I think that's a steal.

Even without the camera...wait!

No, no flash, here's what's in the box:

Pentax K-M / K2000 Body
Pentax DA L 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 AL Lens
USB Cable I-USB7
Strap O-ST84
Eyecup FQ
Hot Shoe Cover FK
Body Mount Cover
Software (CD-Rom) S-SW84
4 AA Lithium batteries



Wow. Time to sell my K100D Super.

Just been reading up on this baby - it hasn't really been on my radar, but
it may be pretty sweet. I'll give the AF a workout to see if it's really faster than the K20D.

I love my K100DS, but 10MP, faster AF, etc... This may have to be my travel camera.

Hi and congratulations,
I won a couple of these from Prodigital (one for my mom) and really like it with my 21,40, and 70. I do think af is a little faster than my K10d, and high iso noise seems a little better as well. I just glanced at the completed listings and over the last 10 days or so most were between $375 and $425, with a high of $485 and a low of $335. I ordered mine a couple weeks ago and paid $365 and got lucky on the second, paying $331 (or rather, my mom got lucky as I ordered it for her, as she wanted to replace her K100d).
No flash, and K-M instead of K2000, but who cares. I love it as my take everywhere camera and would guess others will as well.

Wow, $331, congrats to you!! This is really a great deal for a brand new
DSLR with shake reduction, etc...

These really are terrific prices, congrats to both on such great deals - hands down, best priced packages for the money!

BTW, if anyone interested still in K10D, Cameta Camera selling them brand new for $399 or with grip for $484, and with current rebate applied - pretty sweet deal!

Regards,
D
