    I'm thinking about getting a canon ft to replace my now-broken K1000. Is the ft a reliable model to use? Or should I look around for another pentax?

    If you have lenses for the Pentax, then it's a no brainer. Go for another Pentax K 1000.

    @doctormark
    2 questions..
    what are some of the things you like about the K1000?
    what do you think may be better about switching to a canon?

    Another K or M series Pentax would be able to use any K-mount lenses you already have. Another K1000 or, if you can find a good one, an MX would be good choices.

    If you want to change to Canon that's fine, but the newer FT-bn, FT-b, TX, or TL-b would be better choices. They're newer and have better meters than the older series that includes the FT, TL, and Pellix.
