Interesting! The Spotmatics we were issued 66-67 were standard chrome finish.

I want that spotmatic. I really want that. Really.
Like he said, REALLY. That's my favorite old SLR camera in pretty much one of my favorite colors. It even matches my favorite army style olive drab messenger/camera gear bag that I'm always toting around. But at that price? Nah, only in my dreams. Oooh, I've got serious camera envy going on here though, lol.

Leica marketed cameras and lenses in their "Safari" olive drab. These still command a "small" premium over the chrome/black models.

Came across an Olive Spotmatic on Ebay in my search for Super Takumars...thought I would have a look for threads on this...see if other Pentaxforum film SLR fiends had spotted it. If there really is only one of these around, you would have thought that there would be better places to sell this than ebay...a proper auction house would be more appropriate if it were truly rare. Further, why get rid of it?
