Owners Manual?

Did a search on the forum too see if there were any PDF's for any of these old camera's. I just picked up an old Spotmatic from a fellow forum member, and I came looking to see if I could find something, but no luck. I expect I'm just blind. lol

Go to PENTAX MANUALS They're excellent scans and they're free. The password is Pentax when you download the manual.

All the m42 Manuals Robin has.

Thanks. I'll check it out and see if it's the same as what I found.

Funny that Kim Coxon's scans are often better than those from Pentax...

So are Butkus' scans. Many of the vintage PDFs look as if they were done off ancient Xerox copies.

Butkus is the man! Want a manual for a Zeiss Ikon Contessa? A Voightlander Vitessa L? A baby Busch Pressman? He's got them, and a gazillion others. We should send a donation to him so he can continue.

That should have read..."Many of the vintage PDFs from Ricoh/Pentax look..." Butkus does a very nice job and even inserts comments on some
