Not at that price

There sure is a lot of colorful text so maybe they are charging that price for all the time spent on the ebay ad itself.

Yeah the text colours kind of hurt your eyes after reading a little bit. Maybe it’s to trick you into clicking on the “Buy it now” button! Subliminal messages!

Nice camera thought, but I agree not at that price!

K2DMD's are not common at all. seeing one is rare enough, but one that is as near 'mint' as one can get is especially rare. I dont think the price is too bad. certainly high, and a hell of a lot more than I would pay. but I dont think its unreasonable for a collectible camera such as this.

Yep the K2DMD is a rare beast, but this one that recently sold for $695.00USD, is probably closer to the real value for one in near mint condition. It also came with a lens, MD and other items.


Pentax K2 DMD Camera Outfit: Price - SORRY - THIS IS SOLD - $695.00

Complete outfit includes the Camera (SN 7159150), 55 f/1.8 SMC Pentax Lens (SN 1184350), Motor Drive MD (SN 1025682), Motor Drive Battery Grip M, Pentax 3m Power Cable, Original Instructions for outfit and the original boxes for the Grip & Motor Drive (foam inserts not included). Camera in beautiful collector condition. Lens clean & clear, meter, shutter, motor drive, and grip all work great – I have used this outfit.

IMHO the collector body above is overpriced, even as a collector item.

Yes, the kit quoted here is quite an outfit - all the adult toys included.

A K2 DMD is certainly not seen often, but they aren't as rare as the European offer makes them out to be. They were manufactured from 1976 - 1980, staying in production after the MX and ME were introduced. I don't know how many were made, but certainly enough that I have seen them offered several times a year since 1999, and I don't look every day.

I purchased one on an auction site recently for less than $100 with just a tiny bit of brassing on the bottom plate. Currently Eric has it for CLA (should be back this week), so I am in a really neat K body for about $150.

That is a very good looking cam, in great condition. But I wouldn't pay that for a K-series cam, when it would be more than an LX !

Someone beat us to it, looks like the K2DMD was sold.

I have enough camera bodies anyways!
