Looks Like Queenie Is Getting Her King...

A friend on another board just offered to let me buy his SPII in black over the next month or so. I'm doing a lay-a-way I guess, lol, but I couldn't resist. It's not in 100% great shape cosmetically, but mechanically it's fine he says. It's brassed a fair bit, but I don't mind. Just having it on the shelf would be worth the $40 he's asking for it. I'm being bad, but I don't care. I've been coveting one of those for as long as I've had a camera practically...

They are known to have this effect on people. I had a black Spotmatic with lizard skin. A previous owner (from several years back) spotted it and insisted on paying me good money to get it back. True love, that.

Very much true love with me and the SPII. Don't get me wrong I love my pretty K-x to bits and you'd have to lay me out cold stone dead to get it away from me, but an SPII was my first real love camera-wise and when it comes to all things Pentax my Ashai zebra SPII is firmly on the no-sell ever list.

I have a working zebra Honeywell SPII that I have to clean up in a box, and I still have my original zebra SP but a black SPII is like a holy grail of sorts for me even though I keep telling myself I don't need it, and that it's just like sports car lust, I can just look, drool and forget it, lol.

I just hope he doesn't change his mind. This morning he was waffling a bit when he emailed me. I almost bought a black SP last night from someone here, but I finally refrained. It's the SPII I really want in black and I guess I'll just hold out for one even if this deal doesn't turn out to happen.
