My Pentax (compatible) film cameras

cameras four on Flickr - Photo Sharing!
you can see them larger via flicr.

The largest body is the SP1000, the Fujica is really rather petite, considering. I use all of these on a regular basis, with the lenses as mounted, usually. The other day I found myself trying to find the damn memory card slot in the ZX-10 until I realized what I was doing...

Fujica ST605, Fujinon 55mm f/2.2
Pentax Program Plus, smc-a 28mm f/2.8
Pentax ZX-10, smc-fa 43mm f/1.9 Limited
Honeywell Pentax SP1000, Super Multi Coated Takumar 35mm f/3.5

Nice cameras.
I also have a Spotmatic SP1000 and a Fujica st605.

I've not used the Spottie as yet - I bought more for the lens, a Super Tak 55/1.8 - but I did get to use the Fujica a few times last year and I was impressed at the results from it. It's my go-to camera for M42 stuff at the moment.

I really need to get a battery for the meter in the SP1000 and get a few rolls of Superia 100 run through it.

I have a Spotmatic-F and a K1000 - They're both very nice. The Spotmatic is a little nicer thna the K1000 as far as build and features but the K1000 is a tank that accepts my K10D lenses without adapters so it gets more use..
