You can look at KEH, they have a decent supply of bodies only, or outfits with camera + standard lens. You can trust their condition ratings: bargain on up would be eBay "minty"

Aah, pardon me, then.

The Leica is a very pretty camera, clad in aluminium. It takes great pictures - just like a PZ-1p!

I could not agree more with Nesster's comments about both KEH and eBay. KEH makes a genuine effort to provide accurately described items...and sometimes the item is even better than what one would expect. Beware of the eBay "minty." Actually, I have learned to be wary of almost any adjective in an eBay description.

i'd probably want something thats compatible with my k10d's KAF2 lens, but im open to other ideas

Good point, HermanLee. The marketplace has many nice items. I now check the marketplace before looking elsewhere.

Indeed, I think my "LBA" is being utilized. I have discerned the general meaning of this acronym by its context and usage here on the forum. However, I must confess that I have yet to figure out the precise meaning of the three letters

I have a Pentax PZ-20 35mm camera that I will sell. I also have the 28-80mm Power Zoom lens, a remote shutter release, a case and the AF280T flash. Some scratches on the camera body and flash but nothing that effects photo quality.

Let us not forget that there is the Kenko brand film camera available in Pentax K-mount. Probably the only K-mount film body still in production.

The summer 2008 "pro source" B&H Photovideo catalog shows a new Vivitar V3800N K-mount 35mm manual focus SLR (available with two different kit lenses, $140-160) on page 167, and new 645N AF medium format bodies, lenses and accessories are available on page 188.

Good points...what is the model number for the Kenko K-mount?

With regard to the 3800N: is there an optional battery pack for this camera?

KF-4PK. To tell the truth, I don't know if it is available worldwide or not.
