3 generations of K:

Pentax has given their cameras many names on models and series. One of the first was the Asahi Pentax K. That letter has been coming back.

We hereby present: Asahi Pentax K, Asahi Pentax K2 and Ricoh Pentax K-3:

The K's: Asahi Pentax K of 1958 in focus. First Pentax with semi automatic diaphragm and shutter speed of 1/1000.
Focus on Asahi Pentax K2 of 1975. First Pentax to leave the famous M42 thread and introduce the K bayonet. A very well built camera.
The Ricoh Pentax K-3 of October 2013 to the right. So far, one of the most advanced DSLR APS-C cameras around.

Wow, I wish it was me who just "picked up" that one! May I ask from where? About how rare: Read more about it under Asahi Pentax 1957-64.

I picked up a 'Penta Asahiflex H2' serial#230415, seems in pretty good condition with a couple of lenses and accessories. Apparently these are rare?

Hi,
Honeywell was the US distributor and had their name on the cameras until Pentax established its own US-office. H3v was identical to Asahi Pentax SV. Thanks!

Hello,
Great site! I don't see my Honeywell Pentax listed here. It was my first SLR that I bought it used in the late 1960's. Model H3v, any info?
