If you like the K1000 I recommend the Pentax KM instead. The K1000 is actually a stripped-down KM.
The KM adds depth-of-field preview and self-timer but is otherwise identical to the K1000.
And unlike the K1000, all KM bodies were made in Japan.
Since it is a less well-known model, the KM often sells for less than the K1000.

I just want to point out that only the latter K1000s were made in China. Both of mine were made in Japan or I would have gone with another model or brand 22 years ago. I personally like the K2 best of the K series followed by the KX.
