    I learned much of what I know with a Spotmatic. Does that count?

    I've never had a K1000, but I still use my Spotmatics on a regular basis. Never had a need to "upgrade" to something newer. I do wish I still had my old '67 bug though, that was a fun old car.

    I own two, which I still use occasionally to make sure they don't gum up. It was the early 90s, eBay and internet photo forums were nowhere to be found, and all I knew about SLRs was that all the photo mags referred to the K1000 as the most popular beginners camera. So I got one when I went off to college.

    It was my first SLR! I regret having given it away several years ago. I have actually been considering buying one just for nostalgic purposes, but it wouldn't be the same. I can't get my original one back because I gave it to an exgirlfriend who hates me. Passionaltly hates me.

    I had one. My son has it now and uses it regularly. I used it as a back up to my MEsupers. The K1000 is pretty much bullet proof. I wonder how many were built?

    I sold my K1000, but I still use a pre-spotmatic screwmount Pentax. Talk about simplicity. And it still works.
