While many people always wanted high top shutter speed as well as high flash sync speed. I have been using film cameras more than 40 years I never wish to have shutter speed higher than 1/1000 although my first camera did have 1/2000 and I do now own camera with speed of 1/8000 but I never use such high speed. I think with digital one can have very high ISO setting then the high shutter speed is more important. For me my film speed is around 100 and 160 and I prefer to use aperture of 5.6 and smaller so high shutter speed isn't important at all for me. You do have the MX which to me just as good as the FM. I have to say that I don't care for the K1000.
