Default "Used" K3? Not really!

Wow! My "used" Pentax K3 hasn't really been used at all!!! A special thanks goes out to Harriet.

Ha Ha .... I agree - it's hardly run in at all
Spoze that means you need to get out more [and so do I]

And it even came with a RRS L-bracket, too!

The K-S1 has more on the shutter than the K3 does, I didn't use it when I was recovering from nerve damage in my elbow. I had been so afraid of using it and was having too much fun with the S1 anyway. I did use it once or twice when I was trying to talk myself out of the K1 and was very surprised to find I had no problems with it. My grand plan to talk myself out of the K1 didn't work at all.

Well I certainly feel that I have a new camera here.

By the way, the K1, after only a couple of months of ownership, is already 2/3 of the way to the total shutter count on that K3 - amazing!

I think you have found the camera your retirement needs.
