Ah ah, that is the first line of this book regarding the Spotmatic:



If you are into film SLRs I greatly recommend it, it has been very helpful developing my skills when you have to pay $2 or so for shot. It deals mostly with the Spotmatic F that I consider one of the Pentax ever, an almost perfect balance of functionality, quality and performance.

Now, if I am allowed to post a color picture, this is a 1976 Honeywell Spotmatic that I bought NOS, still in the box (with matching serial number), case, original eyecup, original ghostless filter, original Pentax hood...

Seen by its archenemy, a Fujika ST705W with Fujinon 50mm f1.4 on Portra 160...Interesting enough I don't have pictures in B&W taken with my SPFs because I mostly use the Takumar 1.8 and 1.4 on color as they deliver very saturated pictures, especially the radioactive 1.4.
Well, it was also a directive given to soldiers with muskets long before the camera hit the scene

Thanks for the book pointer.

Yes but the musketeers never shot anybody with a Spotmatic!

Again, I cannot contribute in this thread with Spotmatic shots, but I can assume I shoot and score with a MIJ 1976 K1000 with K55 f2.0...with HP5+, there are there are few bullseyes I got in London time ago.






Is it enough to qualify as sharpshooter in the Pentax film regiment?

When I shoot with my Spotty, I especially try to keep my powder dry, just like an old musket shooter.

Another nice one! I think the bike makes the previous shot. Without, it would have been ho-hum. Good, but not great.
