I'd avoid the K2000/K-M and get the K200D instead if possible. Take a look at the following review:

If you like having a focusing point visible in the viewfinder and an orientation sensor, you're out of luck with the K2000. Also, with either camera, it looks like you're going to need to shoot in RAW if you want the best image quality possible.

Body only K200D goes for ~$500 on Amazon:
