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:

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?
