    M42 body with spot and aperture priority

    Hi,
    I'm Lorenzo, an italian amateur photographer.
    I'm searching for an m42 camera body with spot light metering and aperture priority both.
    There's one like that? I've find only cameras with only one of this features.

    Thanks.

    There were a couple of camera bodies which existed back in the 70's which were badged as Mamiya which had the exact spec you are after. I have not seen one for perhaps years so I don't know if there are any still around. Have a look at the link below.

    The ES11 didn't have spot metering Ian it was centre weighted.

    The Pentax ES/ESII and Chinon made apature prority bodies in 42mm, Chinon was also rebranded under GAF, the Chinon's also have an autowinder, but other than some few older match needle Richos(sp?) I dont know of any 42mm with spot meter. Perhaps Fuji, dont recall and never owened a Fuji 42mm. u

    The Chinon CE-3 is a very good aperture priority M42 camera often under-rated, Chinon's were rebadged by many importers in various countries.

    erm what about something like a Canon T90 with M42 adapter for spot metering, but shutter priority.

    Thanks,

    I've already an Eos 50e, perfect for my use, but It hasn't microsprism focusing mirror, and I need it with manual focus lenses.

    You might want to price a Chinon CE3, I have both the CE3 and CM4, shutters are very good, averageing meter is accurate, screen in bright, I can live without the spot meter, wished they had mirror lock up. The winder is just so so.
