Right angle finder m42. Are there two different ones?

I am looking to buy a Pentax right angle finder for my Spotmatic 11.
I thought there was only one model that would fit this camera. But apparently there are two...the preferable one being known as the Model 11 which contains a prism rather than a mirror, & which does not display a reversed image. I knew this model & other variants were available for later models K, M, A series etc, but I didn't know there was a model 11 which would fit my Spotmatic.
Can any one confirm that the model 11 will fit my spotmatic. Is it different in appearance from the "ordinary" one, & is it known as Refconverter 11 or is that a later model again?
Cheers, Pickles.

These two will fit your Spotmatic:

- Refconverter (Unreversed, but laterally incorrect)
- Refconverter II (Unreversed, but laterally correct)

I reccomend only the second one the Ref II.

The A & M versions are a bit too big for your viewfinder and will move around.

Phil.
