Just bought a Pentax K1000 from a guy here in Utah for my photography class for college. The camera is in pristine condition!(only $45 w/SMC 55mm f/2) From my searching I feel that I got really lucky and found an older model(can anyone confirm) doesn't the Asahi stamp mean that it is one of the earlier version(before production moved to china) can the serial number on the top tell me when? Really looking forward to taking pics with it.

Hope you enjoy your time here, and your new K1000!
