Loving the Pentax forum!

I had the huge great fortune to find 3 vintage cameras, all for $5, one of which is a Spotmatic II. I am in love. Have shot a couple of rolls thus far and am having a tough time picking up my digital again. Also, I love how the Spotmatic sits in my hand - the solid weight, elegant design. Yup. Very happy that there is this forum as well.

Welcome to the Forum!!!!

I still have my Spotmatic from when I was in the Navy back in 1970. Its really nice to use the viewfinder and the split focusing. You can also pick up an entire set of glass for a pretty reasonable amount.
