Pentax M42 Screwmount Camera Specifications are here!

Thanks to Steve's (smc) initiative and coordination and contributions from several users we can now launch the Web's most comprehensive database of Pentax M42 screwmount cameras from the original Asahi Pentax of 1957 over the beloved Spotmatic to the ESII, the most advanced, and last, screwmount camera, discontinued in 1975.

The database is open for PF members to post threir reveiws of these fine cameras.

Pentax Camera Reviews -
We still need information about some of the rare models (see the "Other Models" entry), so if you come across information or photos of these models or of models we have missed, please contact one of the moderators.
