No, not the last. Cosina continued making K-mount versions of their manual exposure body up until just a few years ago and still do for Nikon.


I don't think the FM10 is still in production, but you can still find it NiB. B&H doesn't sell it anymore...and Nikon shows it as Out of Stock...

Many thanks for all the answers to my post. I totaly forgot about the FM10/CT1s being manufactured by Cosina so long, which of course lead to various K-mount variants.
The only excuse is, that only very few of these found their way to the german market.

I have very strong doubts about the Vivitar V3800N being manufactured by Cosina. First the Vivitar does not have the Cosina release button, which was part of every manufactured CT1 variant. Second the flash socket is much higher on the body then on the CT1. I think the article in the camera-wiki goes wrong there, especially if you have a look at the Phenix DC303 in the same wiki.
Phenix DC303N - - The free camera encyclopedia
From what its look it is probably still a copy of the CT1.

I remember a K1000 used in a episode of six feet under by an amateur photographer.
