Brand New K3 -$573 shipped (from eBay)
Posted By: Stavri, 03-10-2015, 11:14 AM

I really thought hard about buying one of these, and sell mine (which has about 7000 shots in it) but I had to stop myself since I have the extended warranty and all. I don't know if these units (5 total) come with warranty. hope they find good homes

So weird that when I do a search for Pentax K-3 this listing does not show up for me.
It comes fine in my search....must be some glitch. Is the link working?

I had trouble searching for it but link works and the seller's store lists it in electronics under camera.

I just got an ebay message from the seller. They are a freight liquidation company and all items are void of any manufacturer warranties. But they do offer 14 day return policy (you pay return shipping) so it is not a big gamble - no more than buying used in Mint but never tested condition with a money back offer.

I'd be interested in finding out what the shutter count is on these units.

The seller was very easy to contact and responsive. My guess is that these are new and unused but there may be some use on some of them I suppose.

4 available.

Listing says "Manufacturer's box has minimal wear along edge of box and minor scuffing. Contents are sealed in original packaging".

If it looks suspect or there are counts on the shutter, I'll send it back. I can't imagine they'll last too long at that price.

Reading the full ad, it states 'Open Box'

Hello my fellow Michigander, looking at you sig. I see you got yourself a K30, are you sure you don't want to upgrade?

I bought one of the 5. I'm interested to see if it's "new-zero shutter count" or "new with some clicks on it". The ad says the box is open, but contents are "sealed in original packaging".

Don't let that buyer's remorse creep in by stressing the small stuff, you got a great price for a great camera that's the bottom line. Hope you like it

Not stressing at all. I could live happily with the K30, but hard to pass up a K3 at this price. It will either show up and be what I'm expecting/hoping or it won't & I'll send it back.
