A K1000, without the CLA, typically trades around $50.

This is a better camera than a K1000, no insult to Javier.

Chris is an eminently under-promising, over-delivering seller, with whom I have dealt on a repeat basis and have always been surprised at how GOOD the item is for the price offered. I almost feel guilty sometimes.

For instance:
  • A CLA from Eric costs $68.
  • An M50/1.7 is worth at least $75.
  • You're getting the KM AT LEAST for free
KM Data - Compare to K1000

And you know you aren't getting the Hong Kong or China version - they were only made in Japan.

All metal, fully mechanical, basic camera like the K1000, plus self-timer and Depth-of-Field preview.

Doesn't anyone want this?

I just received a near mint Black ME from Chris sight unseen. My buying experience with him is superb - he really takes great care of his camera gear. You should have no fear buying from him. His communications are clear and gives complete information about the sale item(s). Shipped items are very well packed.
