    Default Camera Lens

    I have a Pentax K1000 that I've had for about 20 years. The original lens is bent (it fell out of my bag). I've looked on e-Bay and they're available, but the bids go way up! I'm looking for a replacement if anyone knows where I can get one (at a good price). It's just you're standard mm. I'm not a camera expert, but want to get back into photography.

    Thanks. Mitzi

    Try a consignment shop or pawn shop, I used to pick up camera equipment pretty cheap that way.

    Smart thinking; as a matter of fact, we have a new place in town called "Buy, Sell, Trade". Thank you!

    I know this isn't helpful, but I have one of those too! Unfortunately I'm not willing to give up my lens

    But I agree on the consignment/pawn shop.

    I have one of those that I have had since 1978. I am going to hold on to it even though I don't use it any more since I went digital. Are those worth a lot of money?

    I'd keep check the pawn stores. Maybe you will find one there.
