[UPDATE] The camera has been sold and shipped, thanks to all for viewing/bidding.
I’ve finally decided to put this one up for sale, I haven’t used it for a couple of years, and we’re cleaning out the house a bit, and since Em has a Pentax K-r herself (not that she uses that, but it’s a backup body) so I decided that this one should go. It was certainly a loyal partner back in the day going with me through Mexico, South America, Malaysia, and India, those are some pretty harsh places I would think. It’s a tough little dslr, and would match some weather sealed lenses as a backup body quite well I would think.
I’m just selling it on ebay cos that’s the easiest place to do it. The pictures I’ve attached were taken with my K-5 and the FA43, now that is a beautiful combination (especially if low light focusing isn’t involved). Go on, get over there and put a bid on, don’t just watch it, it expires in less than nine days, and it’s priced to sell ($25 opening bid, come on). It’s got built-in shake reduction (image stabilisation), less than 9, 000 shutter actuations, so it’s still got a long life ahead of it, runs on AA’s so no need to worry about where to get batteries. It’s just a very capable little camera, that would work very well as either a backup body, or a learning camera, just chuck a nice cheap prime lens (50mm or something) on and it would make a nifty little portrait camera.
