Thanks for posting these ads. I always enjoy looking at them.

The MV is a fine little camera -- if you can find one that has an intact rewind knob.

Pentax has had some fantastic ads over the years.

The only thing is, what is this "photographs, not snapshots" thing?

Snapshooting is an art!

Pentax sure got a lot of mileage out of the autoexposure M body design.
The ME, ME-F, ME Super, MV, MV-1, and MG are all variations on the same basic design.

I see lots more ME and ME Supers than any of the rest.
Does anyone have any production/sales figures?
