The Topcon RM 300 is a manual focus 35mm SLR from Tōkyō Kōgaku, made by Cima Kōgaku. The body has the same features of the RE 300, but uses Pentax's K mount type lenses instead of Exakta lenses. The RM 300 is the last camera released under the Topcon brand name. The Topcon AM-1 was announced but never released by Tokyo Kogaku. Thought it was later completed and released as the Cimko LS-1. There are many other cameras based on this same body including:

  • Quantaray (Delta) D2-RZ distributed in the US at Ritz Camera retail stores.
  • Carena KSM1 distributed by Porst shops in Germany.
  • Exakta KE 5
  • Edixa CX 5
  • Rony RS1, Rony was the French importer of Topcon.

Tōkyō Kōgaku tried to regain market shares by using the Pentax K-mount, an in Cima Kōgaku they had a production partner capable to produce standard lenses for different lens mounts including the K-mount.
