    Your definitely right Steve, I have a KM and a KX and when I bought them they were selling for less than the K1000, I bought an excellent MX last year from an APUG member again well bellow a K100 price.

    There is a K1000 database on Pentaxforums here with details of K1000 bodies by serial number. It is updated periodically in that thread.

    I have a really nice K1000 that you can have if you pay for shipping. It's the one built in Japan with full metal top, not the cheap and chinsy ones that had a plastic top later on. It has a dent in the top hood, but that doesn't affect operation or performance at all.

    I'm in Minnesota, USA.

    @Phenix: Thanks a lot for the Ricoh KR5 recommendation! I'm open to any offer for that too, seems like a nice camera. But is the plain vanilla KR5 as good as the KR5 super? I'm betting it's not. =)

    @dances_w_clouds: PM sent..thanks!

    @Steve Roberts: Yes, I know the K1000 lacks DOF, self timer and mirror lock up, but at this point in time, I don't really mind they don't. I hardly use those features anyway. After all, beggars can't be choosers right? =) Thanks for the tip anyway Steve!

    @Thomas: PM is on it's way to u right this minute. =) Thanks!
