Pentax Spotmatic F

The Pentax Spotmatic F (SPF) added full-aperture metering to all of the features found in the Spotmatic II. Full aperture metering required the newer Super-Multi-Coated (S-M-C) Takumar lenses with an aperture-position linkage to the camera. The camera retained backwards compatiblily with all earlier Takumar lenses.
