Effectively new K-3
Posted By: gatorguy, 03-28-2016, 12:17 PM

There's a "used" but essentially new K-3 at Amazon for just $500 with free shipping.

Looks like someone snatched it! Next lowest is $529 (which is still great IMO).

Yeah, that was me. That K3 is traveling cross-country. It will be a really nice upgrade from my K-X

Congrats on the purchase! Indeed, that's a pretty big upgrade. I'm sure you will enjoy it.

Thanks! I picked up a used K5 on ebay recently, but it was pretty thrashed (but described as in VG condition) and I sent it back. I took two shots with it and was stunned by the difference. I genuinely expected the IQ and AF differences to be more subtle than they were. I just decided to just do it and get the K3. Was prepared to get the K3ii new from B&H before they jumped in price over the weekend. This listing was a nice surprise when I checked Amazon this morning. Lucky me!

I really REALLY wanted to grab it for myself, but I've got a K-s2 on the way and will use it until a clearly better camera from Pentax comes along. While the features and handling of the K3 are better than the K-s2 I'm really focused on macro and the articulating screen makes it better for my particular use. Luckily for @Neokind I couldn't find a way to convince myself I need two DSLR's.
