Countless Pentaxians had only a K1000 with 50mm f/2 lens...

Quite right. That is exactly all my wife had at first with her K1000. In the late '60's, early '70's my complete photographic gear consisted of my Pentax S1a , 50mm F 2 Takumar 55mm F2 and hand held Sekonic light meter.

Pocket camera - Minox 35ML, Olympus XA2 or XA3 etc. - in jacket inside chest pocket.
Before I started working nights about 15 years ago this was my "daily carry"...

Me too. Daily carry through the '90's and early 2000's was my Olympus Clamshell 35mm. During work days I carried it in my briefcase.
