I'm a Pentax guy so thanks for posting. The K1000 is not my favorite Pentax, in fact, it barely made my list but it is a solid performer and I do appreciate its place in the historical lineup so I'll enjoy the article.

I'm Pentax too, and have from time to time tried to work out the great mystery of the Pentax K1000 iconic status. It seems to be seated in its recommendations to student photographers. I wish I knew how this recommendation came about as it was subsequently quoted and re-quoted so often, it took on it's own momentum.
