K5 with Zero shutter count?

What is the least amount of shutter actuations on a new camera? Don't they test them all before the leave the factory? I am asking because I just noticed that my first photo from the K5, when opened in PhotoMe, indicates a shutter count of One.

You are what you eat. Plain and simple. Without proper nutrition, exercise is a lost cause. I see the same people in the gym year after year and they still look like crap. I also know a lot of people that call themselves runners, but you certainly wouldn't know it by looking at them. So, An hour in the gym doesn't do much good if you are doing everything wrong outside of the gym. get the nutrition nailed down instead of trying to climb out of a hole by exercising.

Item for Sale
FA 100mm WR

Asking Price
400

Item Location
Sarasota

Item Description
Lens is in good shape the only thing wrong is the hood has a very small scuff mark on it from where it brushed up against a wall while I was walking.

Other than that everything is perfect. I don't consider anything mint or like new unless it is brand new never opened, thus my conservative and honest rating of condition.

If it doesn't sell quick, I will just pull the auction and get what its worth on ebay.

I will consider trades for Nikon glass or home audio (NAD, Swan M3 ref speakers, etc...) and +or- cash for value parity.

As long as they don't open up a plant in Ohio (like toyota did), I think you are fine with quality and value.

Yes. Mine had one and it was with the manual and serial number card. You don't need it. All you really need is your receipt, which is good because someone took it upon themselves to throw away my empty k5 box thinking it was trash.

Item for Sale SOLD
Pentax K100D & kit lens

Asking Price
$120

Item Location
Sarasota, FL

Item Description
I don't have the original box, but it will be packed very safely and comes with the body, lens, and a set of rechargeable batteries. I don't have the manual, data cable, nor the orgininal pentax lens cap. Cosmetically, the camera is in nice condition, however the flash does not work, as there is some sort of short. When you activiate the flash it drains the batteries VERY rapidly due to the short. Other than that the camera functions okay. This was a backup to my K20, but I now have a K5 and thus don't need 2 back ups.

You would think they would have to disclose that it was an open box or return item. They at least make it very clear at Best Buy on their merchandise. Sounds rather felonious to me

I have to be honest after reading all the threads, I feel like I am trying to find something that probably does not exist with my camera. I did the f22, MF to inf, iso 100 and am going nuts trying to find something. The first 30 shots of my camera are of the damn sky and the blank walls in my office :eek: I thought at one point I actually found the sensor stain and was relieved! However, upon 100% view it turns out it was a flock of high altitude birds captured using my 70-200 tamron. LOL Bloody ridiculous.

So, I just purchased a camera from Adorama with a 393 serial on Monday. Should I just return it and ask for something with a 4xxx production number just to be safe? Why sit around and wait for a problem that could potentially pop up a month down the road and then be without a camera for 5 weeks dealing with Pentax warranty when I could have just swapped it for a 4XXX serial

I guess Adorama doesn't need to worry about price matching the 1299.95. "Due to the events in Japan, we raised the prices by $100 last night". The $100 off is still an offer that is valid, but is through pentax. B&H raised their prices.

7 meals a day except on lifting days and I may bump it up to 9 meals a day. this is my get absolutely cut up shredded diet. Looking to get below 6% body fat Running this for 6 weeks and mixing in 45min of cardio everyday. Cardio starts at 4:55AM on an empty stomach. No cereals, breads, pasta, dairy, processed crap. No juice, no fruit. Just lean protein, fibrous veggies, and clean carbs along with some supplements. Min of 1 gal of h2o, green tea throughout the day, and black coffee to kick start the morning.
1. 30g of protein/15g carbs/.5 g fat
2. 55g of protein/29 carbs/3.5
3. 40g of protein/26 carbs/9 g of fat
4. 45 g of protein/ 27 carbs / 3 of fat
5. 34 g of protein / 2 carbs/ 1 fat
6. 44g of protein / 12 g of carbs/ 21 g of fat
7. 26g of protein / 6. 45 g of carbs / 8.5 g of fat

....Edit: If I am just looking to drop weight as fast as possible, I will do a keto diet and I can very easily drop 25 - 30lbs in 30 days. What I am doing above still allows me to maintain strength and even sometimes add a very small amount of lean muscle mass while dropping body fat. This is what works for me, but I am also someone who follows this like clock work and I measure every gram of food I consume. I have alarms on my PDA, so to go off to make sure I don't miss a single meal at my specific times.

Great price, but I will probably wait until I can snatch one up for less than $1,000. Have seen a few sellers on ebay very close. However, then it gets into do you really wanting to be buying something overseas. Could be a gamble
