Gold mine

I just found a way to finance a K-1. I have two of these, and a motor drive.

This K2DMD ad was $975 USD the previous few weeks. I was suprised the asking price got bumped up this week!

I suppose it's worth whatever someone is willing to pay for it. Seems rather inflated compared to only recent one that has sold in working condition for $145 Pentax K2 DMD 35mm Camera Body K2DMD Black | eBay

But who knows....

I think you missed his description stating, "very rare vintage Pentax K2DMD from around 1975" which predates the official release of 1976 making it a pre-production model . . .

Strange sales strategy

Not the first time I've seen an eBay seller raise the price of an item that didn't sell...

The description said "... The camera has been thoroughly serviced by professional Pentax repairman Eric Hendrickson in Knoxville, USA. The cost of repairs was 171 USD + shipping, customs and tax... "

Doesn't even come with a K50/1.2, but a boring M50/1.7!

How would one even know that?

And even more fun, he only ships to the US, from Denmark. Guess he thinks Americans can pay more and are easy to fool?

I wounder who the true fool is.

Blimey... I should treat my K2DMD (which has also been fully serviced by Eric) with a bit more care!

Just for grins I made a Best Offer of $300*. The counter was $1,175.




* I wasn't really worried it would be accepted.
