Priciest Pentax film camera I've come across...

It looks mint but 1 cent short of 5K is no small change...

Pretty funny

Here is my favorite part of the auction description:

"On 31-Dec-08 at 22:04:38 EST, seller added the following information:
With this being a new year and all and with having had so much interest in this item we have increased the price in order to reflect any necessary adjustments. Merry 2009!
"


What the hell??????????

Excellent timing: there's a lot of drinking going on tonight and he might get lucky.

I think this is the same guy who listed the same item (probably) for a shade under $4k. Now, demand for the K1000 is so much higher that he felt it necessary to tack on an additional $1k. What a deal!

At least he removed the reference to the K1000 being the camera professionals use, or so that's what he heard.

Yeah, it's a Chinese model, but it's lighter as the seller says! Surely that would justify the extra $1500, right?
