    When was the last spottie made?

    I was out shooting this morning with a Honeywell Pentax Spotmatic, w 55/1.4 Mamiya Sekor. The camera body has a "Passed" sticker that says 1982. Were spotties still made in 1982? If so, when was the last screw mount spottie made?

    That number on the JCII sticker is definitely not the year your camera was made.
    A later model, the Spotmatic F, is the final model in the line. It was discontinued in
    the mid-1970's, when Pentax introduced the K series cameras with bayonet mount.

    I think there was a small overlap with the K series and that Spotmatics and some of the other screw equipment were made until either 1976 or 77.
