Camera arrived in worse condition than depicted and had a broken light meter.
24 August 2015
Summary: The camera arrived smelling like it was stored at the bottom of an ash tray, dent on the prism casing and a non-functioning light meter. The smell can be glossed over, people smoke, but the dent wasn't shown in the images in the ad and there was no mention that the light meter was broken.
Best Beginner camera, review from a beginner in photography
4 June 2015
Summary: I have owned this amazing camera for going on over a year and a half and I couldn't be happier. I bought this on a whim as I was looking into starting photography as a new hobby and now I am hooked.
Summary: I would give it no stars. I revived this classic camera. The ad said "very good condition" I brought it to my photography class and my professor confirmed that the lens is broken and the light meter most probably doesn't work either.
Summary: Actually, I hate it, but it was the camera my daughter had to use for photography class. The camera and Lense were very accurately described by the seller, as looking like new. So many thanks there. But it is still a Pentax K1000, that I grew to hate back in the 80's as a photo student.
