K7 on ebay UK (techfurb) - £225 inc post
two thousand plus ebay stars and 99%+ feedback - i grabbed one.
Sounds like a re-furb as the name seems to suggest it with tech-furb.

maybe lance, but mine was described as ex-display, pristine. others (there are many) have other subtle description changes. - we're talking 400 aussie here mate! and w three month warranty.
Me too: just grabbed one.
It says at the bottom of the page that
'TechFurb is a trading name of DSG Retail Limited, Maylands Avenue, Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire HP2 7TG'
... and a quick google for DSG Retail limited shows that it is in fact Dixons, and that 'DSG Retail, Ltd. operates as a subsidiary of Dixons Group PLC.' - see
... in other words a reputable high street electrical chain.
Some of the units listed on ebay say 'used' (but pristine) with a 3-month warranty; others are listed as 'new' with a 12-month warranty.
To the OP: thanks for posting this! If this works out OK, and we ever meet, I will buy you the largest beer that is legally available!!
Link link link please?
The cheapest K-7 on eBay UK is like 675GBP that I can see..
Wow, too bad they ship to UK only.
The seller seems good. Over 2000 feedback including many 500$+ items. They offer a 3 month warranty and PayPal also offers the buyer protection. I would not hesitate one second to buy this if I was in the UK.
The seller is discussed here in a photography forum about some D3's they had for sale (yet apparently more expensive than Calumet refurbs). According to that thread, techfurb is a trading name for DSG Retail, who own Dixons, Currys and some other UK electronic retailers.
I am fairly confident that this is to good to be true, but I always think that and kick myself when I lose out on a good deal!
So I took the plunge and and now waiting to be disappointed.
Either way - brettmeikle - thanks for the heads up!
K10D, DA* 16-50, FA 50 1.4, Tamron 70-300, Sigma 135-400, Cosina 100mm Macro.
call it a rush of blood, but i just grabbed another. greedy?? i know where it's going already....
Never done anything quite so impulsive in my life but the £219.13 inc p&p, new with 12 month warranty is ordered. It's a possibility that a number of us may end up with egg on our face but what the hell - if it's genuine we'll be quids in!
For weeks I've been deliberating over the K7 @ £799 and I decided to be sensible and yesterday ordered an 18-55WR to give me a weatherproof combo along with my GX10. It arrived just minutes before I read your post. It just made perfect sense somehow to have two of them and a new body whilst I was about it!
Thanks Brett and I'll second the beer offer if our paths ever cross.
Think I'm going to take the plunge... 'pristine' used £800 camera for £230 seems a good deal... even if its a 18 month old model... does this mean the K7 is on its way out and does it matter!?
Have been toying with getting a DSLR for ages and this seems like a good place to start? Would I be making an error getting this camera or is it better spending £200 more and getting a K-X?
look on it as £1000 off the RRP of 18 months ago. i read the kx sensor is more forgiving, but it's a no-brainer - mag-alloy body, sealed, 5+fps....WOW!
