Pentax K1000/ZX-M camera replacement

Postby Admin on Sun Oct 10, 2004 5:49 pm

I have a Pentax K1000 that I have had great success using; however I recently found that it had stopped working. I'm told that it will be costly to repair. Do the various lenses I have fit on this new ZX-M model? Also, do you have a repair facility that could advise me? Thank you.

Dear Bob

You are not along! Pentax K-1000 was a super popular film camera and a requirement for most photography classes in schools and colleges. We are getting quite a few requests for camera repair, but with film cameras as with digital cameras, it is often cheaper to buy a brand new camera than to fix your old one.
If you want to try to fix it, you would have to contact Pentax USA 1-800-877-0155 and mail the camera in.
If you decide to replace your Pentax K1000 camera, brand new Pentax ZX-M 35mm film SLR camera is its direct replacement. The good news is that all your Pentax lenses and accessories should still work with Pentax ZX-M cameras or any other modern film or digital Pentax SLR cameras that we have available.
We have plenty of Pentax SLR camera bodies and camera kits (with lenses) available in stock available for immidiate shipment.
We do have bodies for Pentax ZXM camera
