My Pentax K1000 is a slight enigma - only the K1000SE was supposidly sold with the brown leatherette - but at that time it would have been made in Japan - mine is stamped "Assembled in Hong Kong". So I'm not sure if it is the 'SE' or not - regardless it is one of the true classic 35mm SLR Cameras. It was sold from 1976 all the way until 1997 and is one of the most basic SLRs possible - all manual(only needs a battery for the meter), no mirror lock up, self timer or DOF preview - there isn't even a power switch(you just remove the lens cap). All of this leads to it being a favorite workhorse - there is nothing to break. Mine is extra-special as it was a gift from a friend - it belonged to his mom who passed away. Its a joy to use and shoots like a dream.
