K2 Going Rate?

What's a good price for a well cared for K2?

There's a local guy selling a K2 w/ a M50/1.7 for $95 and I'm intrigued.

Yeah, I saw that, but with only one available at the moment it's kind of hard to gauge if that's an accurate price or not.

Sounds about right, if it and the lens are in good working condition. You could maybe talk him down $10 or so.

Unless recently serviced any K2 body will likely require repair of a film speed setting ring that cannot be moved.
This problem has been discussed in several past threads in Pentraxforums.

One should anticipate the added cost of an Eric Hendrickson CLA with any used K2 body purchased.
The K2 is a terrific camera and once serviced should give you many years of trouble-free use.

Yes it’s a good price, especially with a lens included. Don’t forget you will need to get a CLA done on the K2, so that will add another $100.00.

Black K2?

This is a very timely thread.
I was looking to put my black K2 serviced by Eric with case on sale.
I was thinking that $200 plus shipping was a fair price.

Any input?

Cheers,

Luc

Yes that's a fair price for a CLAed black K2 with case. Sending it to Eric would have cost half that, with shipping from/to Canada.

Post some pictures of your black beauty!

I agree with Chris that this is a bit high considering it apparently hasn't been cla'd.
