Pentax Spotmatic 1000 (SP1000)

Pentax Asahi Spotmatic SLR Camera


$2500 for a Pentax Spotmatic...

You will find the Honeywell Pentax Spotmatic even more versatile than the famous Pentax H3v. Its new 50mm f/1.4
and 55mm f/1.8 Super Takumar lenses with completely automatic diaphragm will satisfy the demands of even the
most critical professional. Like the H1a and H3v, the Honeywell Pentax Spotmatic has a 42mm threaded lens mount
that accepts any of the superb Takumar lenses from the ultra-wide-angle 18mm Takumar to the super-telephoto
1000mm Takumar.

Asahi Pentax Spotmatic with 105mm Super Takumar

JEFF,i agree completely with your remark about the pentax spotmatic.. i have asahi pentax spomatic that is 39 yrs old ser#2838037 ,and i would die before i gave them up. 411; ibought it because it was the lightest camera on the counter..

The Asahi Pentax Spotmatic SP was the first in a long line of very successful Spotmatics, and is known as one of the first SLR cameras with TTL metering that actually sold well. My favorite thing about this camera is that it is the native mount for all of my beloved Takumar M-42 lenses. The Takumars are incredibly well built pieces that are as smooth as a hot knife in butter even after decades of hard use. The SP was released in 1964.
