I got one!

After being in the shop looking at a couple of MX, ME Super, ME-F and Super Program I went with the latter. It was a gut feeling that made the decision sway, the Super Program is very mint. I Picked up a single roll of B&W and a color film to start. I'll post when I finish up both rolls.

Here is my M 50mm f/1.4 on it;

There's something really attractive about the 80s design of the Super Program.
I have a Pentax ME and I really love it, but if I get the chance a having an SP, I'll sell my ME quite fast.

You are right, the 'look' is very attractive. I'm very happy with the condition it's in.

I picked Ilford FP4 Plus 125 B&W and standard color Fuji Superia 200. I'll see how these turn out and play with different films to see what works best for me.

[insert a touch of camera envy here]

Excellent choices of film, by the way. Superia 200 (and its Kodak sibling, for that matter) is a great all-round film, but usually too slow for handheld indoors work.

I really, really like slow(er) traditional B&W emulsions. They have a unique beauty that nothing else can touch. I strongly suggest developing your own, eventually, and then making your own prints. There's a great deal of satisfaction involved when you finally take your negs off the developing reel, still wet from the photoflo. It's absolutely magical... *sigh*...

Aaanyway, if you're interested in doing your own developing &c a course at your local community college is an excellent way to start.

That Super Program looks brand new! Congratulations!

I started the same way with film--a roll of Fuji Reala 100 and a roll Ilford Delta 100. I'll be posting mine in my thread sometime next week after I get back from the beach and get them developed.

Inside and out this SP is next to mint. I wasn't even looking at this model to begin with, I got lucky.
