Refurbished Pentax K2000 with DA L 18-55mm lens--$299.99
Posted By: bwDraco, 07-11-2012, 09:41 AM

Newegg.com - Refurbished: PENTAX K2000 Black 10.2 MP 2.7" 230K LCD Digital SLR Camera w/smc PENTAX-DA L 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 AL Lens

Why in the world would Newegg be selling a nearly four-year old camera?

Their buyers probably got a really good deal.

Quite expensive at $300. One can get a K-x at that price. The kit lens while it's better than other kit lens, it's still not worth it.

Not a refurbished one but you can easily find a barely used K-x for les than $300 here at PF Marketplace.

Right, and the buyer would forgo the 30 day return policy and 1 year warranty that comes with the refurb. That means a lot to some people.

You will never get one year warranty with refurbs unless you buy extra warranty. The typical warranty for refurbs is 90 days.

Then again, most sellers on PF have 3-7 days return policy, more than what it's needed to test the camera. Of course, none of these is better than what is provided by the refurbs. I'm just saying buying on PF is fairly safe and you will get a better camera for the same invested amount.

Ah I must be blind. I dind't see that part. Thanks for bringing that up. I'm surprised they gave 1 year warranty for the refurbs.

However, I still recommend to go with a second-hand K-x for the same price

I was surprised too. Some prefer the rendering of CCD sensors over the CMOS sensor, isn't the 2000/M the last CCD camera fron Pentax?

Yes, for the K-mount. The K-x, K-7, K-r, K-5, K-01, and K-30 are all CMOS-based. Note that the 645D is CCD-based.

Well, I just called Pentax and they said that refurbished products, which are denoted by a red dot on the bottom of the box, have a 90-day warranty.

Guess the dealer got it wrong. Have you called Newegg to have them correct their error?

I just called Newegg and they said they'll contact Pentax to double-check the warranty duration.
