Black Spotmatic F?

Hi all, a quick question..

How common is the black-body Spotmatic F? Struggling to find much info via Google...

Thanks, Nick

I think not as common as the silver version but not a rarity or big ticket collector's item.
Here it is quite common, as there is one sitting on my coffee table as I write this.

Ok thanks, I thought as much.

I've found a nice original-owner one locally with it's SMC-Tak 50/f1.4. Pondering whether I shoud add it to my black LX and MX and make it a threesome

The lens is worth more than the camera.

Really. Black SP-F is a nice, full-aperture metering camera if itís working. The SMC Takumar 50mm f/1.4 is equivalent to the K50/1.4.

Except that it's radioactive.

I realise that, just havenít seen a significant difference in price when they pop up in the classifieds.
