I agree, youre not going to see any K20Ds in use 30 to 40 years from now, like you do with Spotmatics or any K series film cameras.
Yep, that's why each grandson will get a newly cla'd MX on their eighth birthday and the granddaughter will get either an MX or the mint black ME that I picked up for $9.95 off fleabay (lady didn't know what she had or how to describe it so I was the only one that bid).

What a great idea for a birthday present!! They should love the cameras and the MX is the perfect size.

Im jealous as I only got soap and National Geographic subscriptions for my birthday at that age.

I got a Brownie Starflash for my eighth birthday which is why they get a camera at the same age. They just get an upgrade over what I got.

Wow, you guys can remember your eighth birthday?

I think I had a Pocket Instamatic around that age - had to buy my own first 'real' camera (a K1000) at age 15...

BTW, that *is* a wonderful idea for a birthday present!

Edit: I just had a flashback (no pun intended) about that Instamatic - I discovered that you could fire those old flashcubes with a 9-volt battery. Boy, was my dad mad when he found that I'd wasted a couple boxes of flashcubes...
