Perhaps that was just hyperbole, but it's what he told me about a year ago when I sent him a spotmeter that fell into a creek. Maybe he's winding things down, maybe not. I'm obviously not in
the neighborhood. Doing more than one kind of meter would make sense esp since Pentax is no
longer actually mfg meters. I've got three of them and certainly wouldn't want any of them reading
differently from the others, though one of them has about mechanically had it. I use these for all
formats, all kinds of film.
