A bit over priced at 2 Grand, but that is a $600 lens [mint K-50mm f/1.2] mounted on a $300 camera [pristine Black KX]. One grand for the combo shipped is reasonable.
But for 2 Grand, I would expect the camera/lens combo, a case of Portra 160, and a dinner date with Scarlet J.

You get his soul, too. So there's that.

I currently own two each of Pentax KX and MX chrome bodies.
Including CLA each cost approximately $125 to $200 in total.

IMO spending that kind of money is quite reasonable for a superb classic
mechanical Pentax SLR that will work reliably for many years to come.

Don't belive that is a 600 dollar lens, it is a 50mm f1.2 M-version. The A-version runs at a higher price.

There was no M50/1.2, it is a K50/1.2. It's still a $400 lens at least but certainly not $600. I wouldn't pay more than $150 for a black KX unless it had just been CLAd.
