I bought a Pentax Spotmatic with a 35/3.5 takumar lens & hard case for $15.00. Also has a Vivitar 85-205 zoom lens, filters, a cheap vivitar flash that was broken, cable release & all manuals. Oh yea also a hippie strap. I found a battery for the camera & put in a new set of lightseals. Meter works & shutter speeds sound good. I hope the 35/3.5 is a good lens.
I used to pass on Spotmatics but now that I want one, I haven't seen any. Nice deal you got.
I have a Fujica ST-701 that I use for my M42 lenses.
Neighbor across the street gave me his old Pentax Spotmatic. He says that he hasn't use it in at least 20 years but there's a roll of film in there. Not really sure what I'll do with it. I don't shoot a whole lot of 35mm any more and when I do its usually one of my old rangefinders or the Maxxum 800si.
Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming– “Wow! What a Ride!”
So I ordered me a new old style Petzval portrait lens with P6 mount on Kickstarter as a X-mas gift to myself: a "Medium format Petzvar f/3.8 120 mm Petzval fine art portrait lens" to fit this camera.
I got me the P6 mount since I lucked out on the Hasselblad camera (as mentioned before).
I'm looking forward to using this old camera. I like its looks.
