1139333HiddenThis was my First Pentax SLR and one of the best higher end SLRs Pentax made. From simplicity of the automation to the intricacies of remote, multi-flash, motor drive, data-back, and other neat accessories. This is a great camera. I bought it as soon as it was available back in the early 1980's and still bring it out once and a while. It now sits along side my K-5.Wholsale Photo - Midland Park,NJ
