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:

Hi Richard,21.454 K models were produced between '58 and '59. But Pentax used the letter K for many other models, too. K-series in '75 and digital since 2006.
How many Pentar K cameras were made please?
I have a -50 and an -M along with an SF-X sadly all are scrap thanks to the poor quality motor BUT I do have a -5S which I have nothing but praise for
Hi Henrik,Interesting. But where is the source for this? I have read several articles on the K-mount history, but never saw that proved.
