The Pentax K1000 is a wonderful second 35mm SLR camera for any professional, and a good camera for an amateur. It is relatively durable, and easy to use. I would not recommend this camera to anyone who likes all the bells and whistles, seeing that it is a bare bones camera. As for those who like a back to the basic camera, the Pentax K1000 is a very good choice.
