Does this look decent you think? 2nd hand k-5 with 12mth warranty and free delivery AUD400 (USD285)


Pentax K5 Body | Secondhand | Ted's Cameras

I guess it depends on the condition as well but I'll probably inspect it in store vs a blind online purchase.

Thanks all. Time for the ol' analysis paralysis.


Think I'll try the battery adapter with enloops and keep an eye out for an old K-5/3.

If I was going to drop the cash for a new body (KP, K-? II etc) I'll probably sell up shop and look for something more video friendly like a Sony.


On the K-30, I took it for a walk today and found other issues with the electronics on top of the ap block. AE a bit off, AE-lock was a hit and miss (compose, ae-l confirmed with symbol, press shutter, it recomposes and locks on something over/under exposed), spinning dials does nothing (works again after you toggle mode).

It's been awhile; looking for guidance from fellow Pentaxians.

I got bored during lockdown/isolation, so I dusted off my k30 only to find it's blocked.


A combo of lazy, convenience, phone and go pro meant I barely used the k30 during its prime (<5k shutter count).

Photos are fine with my primes but I mainly record these days and all my wides are auto.

Any recommendation for a second hand body without running foul of the aperture block?


Probably cant justify dropping cash on a new body and now regretting selling my SMC A28mm after seeing these ebay listings.

Yep I got the same problem. Only noticed when I tried to update my firmware today. Formatting works on the camera but attached to the comp its "read only" under disk management.

The tab on the side is set to unlocked. So please don't offer that solutions.

Lens upgrade for K-5
Posted By MagusAku

In terms of versatility as a walk around lens, its a shoot out between the 17-70 and the 18-135.
I would personally opt for the 18-135mm but the questions that I would ask is/are:-

How important is WR?
Is 70mm long enough reach?
Internal vs external zoom? Some people for whatever reason aren't always comfortable walking around with their fully extended lens.

To work around Sellers who only post within the US, I have been looking at some third party postage forwarders'.

I have stumbled upon comGateway. Has anyone here used their services? Any other recommendations?

Peace
