We should start a petition to get the spotmatic officially named as the most photogenic camera!
wait a minute my friend, wait a minute! until you've handled a pre-spotmatic pentax, you just dont know! the spotmatic is a nice looking camera, but they dont compare to those that came before them.

My vote has to be: 1958 Pentax "K" in black if at all possible.

This is a close approximation of that camera...

That's the Pentax Asahi K on the left.



That dial on front of the K (and AP and S) is for the slow shutter speeds. It was a hold over from some of the Asahiflex bodies.

I'd have to agree. Last week I picked up a very clean SP II and I just keep staring at it. It's a beautiful piece of work.

Fashion vs pRon

The spotty in green is quite a fashion statement and inviting.

The pink salmon lizard however is shagalicious
