K-01 auction dump from Roberts Camera
Posted By: jimr-pdx, 04-12-2015, 06:05 PM

Ebay now has several K-01 bodies from Roberts Camera going at once. They still have a few Buy It Now deals as well, this link is just to auction prices:
eBay K-01 (auction only)

All ending this week!

They also have a bunch of 40XS lenses; they must have picked up an auction themselves!

Yes I would. That is very nice of you. Do you not want one?
If I win an extra one for myself, it'd be good - but I don't mind bidding on your behalf. I'm watching a bunch of stuff regularly on ebay.

No guarantee that I'll win though, lol, seems like there is a fair bit of interest in them.

A bit unbelievable seeing a k-01 under $50! Any idea of what the drawbacks could be?
Closing bid is sure to be much higher. I was watching a K-S1 that was ~$31 and was ~$202 when I stopped watching it. Still a K-S1 for around $250 would be a good deal but more than my budget.

Back when they were trying to sell a bunch of K-50 cameras, and asking $308 for a body, I offered something like a more reasonable $250 ... and their 'bot rejected my bid immediately. I eventually bought my K-30 + lens from a KEH auction for $290 (all prices are ppd), which is even better for me than my offer when you consider what lenses were going for. Eventually they gave up on the Buy-It-Now routine and sold at least some of the bodies on auction; once I had bought my camera, I didn't track them as carefully as I had been, but my sense is that most of the auctions went for less than I had offered.

added: I watched just now as one of the remaining K-50's went for roughly $180, including shipping (roughly the same price as the K-01).

Not bad. And it has a 6 month warranty, too.

A K-S1 just went for 213 dollars. Pretty amazing that.
