Ran into this flicker site today. Don't know if it has been posted before, but seems great for this thread.

Does anyone remember how much the K1000 cost when introduced?

You could buy one from the big mail-order stores for $165 with the f/2 lens.

For a similar price, you might get a Canon TX or Minolta SRT200 with the f/2, or $10 less a Mamiya DSX 1000 with a f/1.4. The

IIRC in the late 1970's the big NYC mail order dealers listed the K1000 body for around $100.
