Pentax SP1000 replacement
My dad gave me his old pentax sp1000 a while ago, together with some lenses, filters etc. The camera is in pretty bad shape, but the lenses and the rest of the equipment are fine. Would be a shame to just have the lenses sitting there, so i figured i'd get a new camera body that fit them. I was thinking i would get an identical asahi pentax sp1000, but those don't seem to be that easy to come by, and even rarer in good condition.
So my question is, what other cameras could i be looking for? Anything that fits the pentax screw mount the sp1000 has would be of interest. My knowledge of cameras is limited and being rather new to photography i've focused mostly on the nikon fm2n i bought a short time before i got the pentax. the fm2n would be a much better starter to build on i figure, but i still got all these pentax lenses i can't use.. so well.. i need a camera for them.
I guess what i'm looking for is peoples experiences with different cameras that fit the bill. Durability, functionality, and also availability on the second hand market.
Lemme hear your thoughts people
