Asahi Pentax 'K' original User Guide

Not a photocopy or scan / PDF please. I'm looking for an original booklet.

There are some readable PDFs for both cameras here - Pentax Manuals

They might serve your purpose.

Robin has the best scans around and that is my backup if I can't find an original. The K is much harder than the SV.

Thanks for the link.

I think Monochrome is after something much older and incredibly uncommon - The 'K' SLR film camera produced in the late 1950's

I'll check my boxes of manuals tomorrow. I do have a Spotmatic manual.

I have the SV/S1a. Looking for the 'K' (very old - 1958) which is nearly impossible to find.

Thank you. I'll need to call about the user guide to be sure. The Lenses and Accessories brochure is probably a mid-70's SMC Pentax full line sales piece.
