As an SLR camera, a swinging mirror relays the image outside through the lens and directly into the viewfinder - so you see exactly what the lens does! This allows your focusing and composition to be precise and exact. It also means that you'll be able to immediately see the effects of filters or conversion lenses.
- LED Light-guided TTL exposure
The 122K features TTL (through-the-lens) metering for accurate exposures every time. A series of led lights inside the viewfinder tell you the exact moment that your urgent fingers have selected the proper shutter speed and aperture for the shot.
- Pentax K Mount
The Zenit 122K accepts all Pentax K mount manual focus lenses. Of course, this includes the Zenitar 16/2.8 fisheye, and a host of other Zenit-manufactured lenses. You can also easily find a lot of excellent Pentax lenses on the used market.
- Sturdy Russian Construction
The 122K is composed of a sturdy metal skeleton wrapped in high-impact plastic. The result is a strong, strudy feel in your hands – with a weight light enough to rock around town all day.
- Standard Flash Hotshoe
This camera happily accepts all standard hotshoe flashes
Guaranteed for 1 year against any manufacturer defects.

Re: Zenit 122k Slr Camera
The Zenit 122K has a small viewfinder and the meter is not as accurate as model camera. Upper shutter limited to 1/500 and lower speed 1/30 only. The design is basic but extremely reliable. If you want Zenit brand, go for m42 mount where you can get many fantastic lens and cheap - Zenit 12 (full metal body instead of plastic for Zenit 122) or the pro spec Zenit 19. Zenit 12 sold on ebay as cheap as below U$50 and you can get a Zenit 19 below U$100. If you want K mount, why not get a fully mechanicall Pentax like the KX, MX or LX?
