Way cool, thanks for posting.

Time telescopes -- just 6 years later the Spotmatic II is reviewed with a Canon F-1 and Mamiya/Sekor Auto XTL

And 7 years earlier...

Thanks Nestor!

Although I didn't get into photography until the early 70's as a high school student, I was an avid reader of camera reviews well before that. I could have told you the supposed merits of the Minolta SRT-101 vs the Mamiya/Sekor 1000 DTL, vs the Canon FL or F1.
