Old Pentax brochures (Spotmatic etc)

Going through my fathers files and came across a number of Pentax brochures...Spotmatic....lenses...etc) Would these be of interest to any of the members here?

Thanks the 1975 Pentax Dealer guide was very interesting. You can see the roots of almost the entire original 1975 “K” series lens collection. The only lens missing in the Takumar lineup was the K50/1.2.

Great stuff!!
Phil.

Thx for the replies. As opposed to scanning, I was wondering if anyone actually "collected" these?...

Nesster has scanned and posted a lot of vintage ads, brochures etc. on Pentax cameras and lenses in this forum and the SLR lens forum. The are worth searching and looking through.

I just found another cupboard with a bunch of old photo magazines and more Zeis Ikon brochures. Once I get these all together, I'll let those who are interested know what there is...
