Japan: NIKOMAT/NIKKORMAT: 1965-1978:

In reality a part of Nikon, but presented as a brand of its own.
Nikkormat (or Nikomat in Japan) were brand names under Nikon meant to compete with Pentax, Minolta, Miranda and others in the consumer market. They had quite some success through the 60s and most of the 70s, until Nikon decided to make lower priced cameras under their own name.

 

Nikomat in japan, Nikkormat in (most of) the rest of the world. It used the same Nikkor lenses as Nikon. Quality was good, but not quite matching Nikon.
Traditional lay out, except..
the shutter time ring, placed around the mount.

Sorry, I misread your question, and my answer was about the Pentax K. The number of Pentar K was very, very low. Yes, 269$ seems a very low price.

Hi Bosse,

A near mint Asahi Pentar (yes Pentar) sold last month on ebay for £269. Were you aware of this? It seems like a very low price.

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.
