General Description

From 1976 to 1980, the K2 DMD was the Pentax top model. This “Data Motor Drive” version of the K2 added the possibilty to use a data back and a motor drive. Furthermore, the aperture value and the application of an exposuere correction factor now both are visible in the viewfinder. A viewfinder curtain ensures correct automatic exposure when no eye is looking through. Last but not least, the K2 DMD was the first Pentax to feature an exposure memory lock.
