Pentax Mamiya hybrid?

Probably the rarest Pentax camera.

No, it's a regular Mamiya 500TL camera with an Asahi Pentax clip-on coldshoe accessory mounted on it

I am actually surprised that the shoe adapter fits.

If you look at the second photo in the eBay auction, you can see that it's what fashionistas might call a "comfort fit"

There are often cases like that in the PF "Worst of Craiglist ..." etc thread. Nikon cameras described as "Pentax" because they have a Pentax lens cap, or a lens (or whole camera) called as a "Skylight lens" because it has that filter on it.

I've picked up some great deals on Pentax lenses described as a 'Hoya 49mm UV lens' or similar...

The shoe adapter is worth more than the camera.

If it's properly working then the Mamiya is an M42 with spot metering capability which I think is desirable . . .



Although mine may not be as desirable since it is not a hybrid . . .

The listing says it is a TL, not a DTL...

Didn't previously know the difference between TL and DTL but apparently the TL has a spot meter only which is my preferred mode. No doubt a really fat spot . . .
At least the listing didn't say this was rare and I suppose the sold price seems reasonable for the area?
