    No kidding... I looked at the table a month or two ago and found 14 of the little critters gathered there.

    I have even taken to giving a few away to relatives who were excited to receive them but (sadly) don't seem to care enough to use them.

    With fewer OM's to feed, the population of XA, Stylus and Mju are now increasing.

    Ken, is that ugly OM 2S still cranking out beautiful images for you? Yes, I know most of the others are feeling like step-children now that the OM 3Ti has moved into the house. I know there are other Olympus camera living with you, but neither of us are ready to talk about our bastard e-thingies. Don't let anyone give you a bad time about having too many OMs . . . it is somewhere around 35-40. Bill Barber

    The other day I stumbled on a scene that is a bit disturbing. Avert your eyes. (BTW, the OM-2S wasn't having any part of this--I think it was out actually making pictures instead of...).

    When you turn your camera on, does it return the favor?

    im partial to the k1000 ...
    i have had mine and used it since i was 13 or 14
    and never had a problem with it.
    i have never found the need for a DOF preview button
    and i have never had a problem focusing &C.
    it doesn't have a self timer, but it is easy to get a cable.

    welcome to apug !

    Pentax sold a lot of the Pentax K1000 models. Mostly, because they were easy to operate, mechanically simple and reliable. You don't read too many stories about owners having problems with them.

    They are mechanically similar and nearly identical in operation to the Pentax Spotmatic, another well-known, reliable camera.

    I've had three Pentax K1000 (down to just one), and it does what you ask of it. No frills.

    I've also used a KX (excellent full-size camera) and the MX (my first Japanese camera bought in 1978).

    I've also used the Olympus OM cameras. They're also great cameras. Different body shape, and you have to get used to the shutter speed dial being at the base of the lens mount.

    You really can't go wrong with either one. Judge the camera by how it feels to you.

    I caught my OM-1 and OM-4 in that same situation, and nine months later along came the XA twins.

    I agree what has bwwn said about the K1000: utterly reliable. Like a Linux System in a computer. It does exactly what you ask it to do. I have 4 for many years without failure. It lacks the beauty of th Olympus though.
