Noticed that here in Canada as well. A decent earlier production K1000 that hasn't been beaten to death with a K or M 50 f2 lens will set you back around $180 Cdn. My local camera pusher at Burlington Camera pointed while K1000s were made by the ship load, most are in about the same condition as a Ford Crown Victoria Taxi cab just after it's been retired.

I now have two KX's (the black one needs a CLA) and a MX. I just have to get some more lenses and I'm set.
You don't have enough KX'es. You need one each split-image and matte / microprism. In silver and black.

$120 CDN for a K28/3.5 is astonishing. They've tended to go in a wave from $50USD to $200USD since 2011. IMO $200 is a steal.
A local seller has a K28/3.5 for $100.00 CDN on Craigslist, as well as a boxed A35-105/3.5 for $80.00 CDN:

Bizarre concept. Would choosing the M lens be slower and less painful?

I don't think you're imagining it but I do think you are wishing it to be true . . . me too . . .

And how about that zebra lens for the K! I am still missing an S too!

The zebra lens is often up Sale, but the asking price is crazy, often less expensive to buy a K with lens!

For instance LX accessories come very few and very far in between and quite high when they show up. I can't remember the last time I saw a 250 back, motor drive, focusing screens or even that flash terminal cover!!
LX stuff is expensive! And the flash terminal covers, where have they all gone?
There is a 250 film back on ebay now, even the orignal bulk loading thing. Actually 2 sets 250 backs, one from Korea and one from Germany. And a complete, in the box Lx motor drive.

Saw those but didn't pull the trigger. I suppose I can save my money for the titanium version . . .

On the web I only buy from shop or junk markets, the lens is almost new & came on rusty SP which works ok, (total bill 40£) I'd like a S1A for the lens cause I sold my S1A in 75 big mistake, one of many,

I use single coated lens for mono period signature flare & ghost but the lens is performing too well.
