Description:

The Pentax KM is the higher grade version of the successor of one of the most iconic film cameras out there - the K1000. Like the K1000, the KM is also recommended for photography students and beginners. This is for a good reason as this camera strips you down to the bare minimum needed to take beautiful pictures. It is equally well made as the Spotmatic series and is perfect for someone looking for a reliable, well-built film camera with the addition of a bayonet mount which makes it easier to quickly swap lenses. It boasts a full-metal construction with virtually no internal electronics to worry about. The metal build also gives it an amazing feel in the hand without being too heavy.  Focusing is done manually. The viewfinder is bright and big.

The lens is a beautiful Super-Multi-Coated (SMC) Pentax lens with arguably one of the best coatings on any available 55mm lenses. The result of the SMC is a dramatic improvement in colour fidelity and brightness while minimising flare and ghost imaging. This 55mm is sharp and very versatile, it will produce great shots if you specialise in portraiture but still remains one of the best 55mm landscape lenses for this price on the market.
