well, I guess I'll have a K2000 showing up...

I hate prodigital...

I've wanted a smaller version of the K20d for some time now. The prospect of putting a 43ltd on a small body for street shooting is quite appealing. So I figure I'll see what the K2000 is going for. Adorama et all is $575 for the body, 18-55 and flash. I have no use for the flash or the kit lens, and that is a fair chunk of money for an experiment. Then I look on eBay and ProDigital has a number of K2000 auctions. I set myself an arbitrary limit ($351) for a K2000 w/18-55 and give it a snipe attempt.

So I guess I have another camera showing up. But at $350 for the body and lens, I figure I can sell it for that if I don't like it. *sigh* Just what I need...more stuff. I'm sick...

I received my K-m from Prodigital on Friday. Unfortunately it has a severe front focus problem with all my lenses.. I am waiting to hear if they will exchange it for another. If not then I guess it is off to Pentax for service. I played with it enough to think that I am really going to like it if I can get a copy that focuses properly.

I got mine for $325

Had to laugh when I read this, I got mine for $385 (before shipping) in exactly the same way

I sold the 18-55 kit right away, then later decided to sell the camera + an F 50 1.7 for $410 shipped. I think I got a good deal and so did the buyer, and I got to use a great little camera for a month.

Below was taken with the 43ltd on the K-M, a great little combo:

Ha! I did the same thing with the k-m. Got it for a bit less than your sale price, but way more after shipping and taxes (I'm in Canada) which amounted to another $70 US! And I'm less than a two hour drive from Prodigital's door!

I actually sold it before my wife even knew I had it. And hence I live to tell the tale.
