demand and sell quickly. it really is a great camera!!!
Here is what I came up with:
Early versions-made in Japan-Metal top and bottom-AOCo logo on pntaprizm-serial# on TOP-Asahi Optical Co. on back of top by the wind lever-also a fake "button plug" by the serial#
Ones made in Hong Kong-Metal top and bottom-AOCo logo on pntaprizm-serial# on BOTTOM...
Models made in China-Plastic top and bottom-NO LOGO on pentaprizm-a lot lighter in weight-not sure of serial# location.
Please correct me if this is not correct. I did see a K1000 on shopgoodwill that did not have AOCo logo on the pentaprizm.
It would be safe to say that that one was plastic and made in China. Good information for potential buyers/collectors.
