It lasted all these years since 1972 wanted to shoot some film again plus that old glass works great got some old pentax glass and some sears lenes also wanna give my K100D a break for awhile.

I use a XR-10 as a backup and car camera. It has several features I like, including EV compensation and AE lock. Nice size and it's black.

There are several Ricoh/Sears shooters on this site. I have three Ricoh:
  • Singlex TLS
  • XR-2s
  • XR7
I remember a thread a couple of years back where someone posted that Ricohs should be considered to be honorary Pentax. I prefer my XR7 over my Pentax Super Program and use the XR-2s as my workhorse film SLR.

Here are photos on Flickr either of or from my Ricohs:

I'm thinking of the xr-7 next I was told the sears Ks-2 is the same. Myold TLS was made by Ricoh built like a tank can't complain after all those years.
