Which Pentax for me?

I would like to purchase (new or used) an automatic SLR with K mount and built-in flash. Is there a Pentax that fits that description?

My son was taking a photo class in high school and wanted to use my SLR. I have a K1000 from a long time ago but it needed repairs and that was going to be expensive. I have several Kmount lenses and I wanted to be able to use them, so we shopped ebay.

I purchased another k1000 and THEN my son brought home a Pentax loaner camera from school that I liked even better. I believe it was a ZX30. When checking ebay, they have a few ZX30's but they don't look like they have a built-in flash.

Is there such a thing as a Pentax with a built-in flash?

My ZX-7 has a built in flash... It works just like the flash on my K100 Super... in fact the top of the camera looks very similar and it has many of the same basic functions. The only difference is its a film camera.

I was going to trade it in soon, but if you are interested in it, please send me a PM.

Why not go digital? You can still use those old lenses, their apparent focal lengths will change, multiply the focal lengths by 1.5. The K100D Super would be perfect?
