Which SLRs can take full advantage of Rikenon-P lens?

I have a 50/1.4 Rikenon-P that I have been using with my ME supers and K7.

I am curious which Ricoh cameras can take full advantage of the P-lenses. The only one I am aware is the XR-P.

Can Ricoh SLR expert advise?

Check the Ricoh manuals on Butkus's website. I believe the XR-M (XR-X) and a couple of later versions of that model, and maybe the KR-30SP (XR-20SP) and one or two others have full program capability with the P lenses. Others have a shutter-priority mode with P lenses but aren't fully programmable.

XR-P, for sure, there is a Web site devoted to documenting the Ricoh line. I will see if I still have the link and post it up when I find it. Beyond that, if the shutter speed/mode dial has a "P" or Sv setting, the body supports the Rikenon-P lenses.
