|Ricoh KR5sv w/28-80 SLR -
Retail Price: $447.00 ?????? (you have to be joking - dollar figure from Ritz Camera)
The all-manual, all-mechanical Ricoh KR-5sv is just the ticket for hands-on learning of photographic principles or a great back-up camera if your knowledge is already there. Its all-mechanical design means that you're not a slave to batteries. If the batteries quit, the meter no longer reads out but you can continue to take photos. The KR-5sv come with our own Quantaray 28-80mm zoom lens for all-around shooting and, because it uses the classic Pentax camera mount, getting additional lenses is no problem. (in fact, you may already have some).
