6174280HiddenVery clean chrome Spotmatic F with SMC 55/1.8 sn# 8009737. Cosmetically and mechanically it is in excellent condition except for a lightly engraved baseplate. The meter works, but I prefer to use a Sekonic spot meter. This is a regular carry camera that gets a lot of attention from people carrying plastic digital cameras.Etsy

6158131HiddenWell used in the past by a fire investigator, this SP F has considerable wear to the back. The hinge pin was bent outward at the top and bottom, but that was easily corrected. The light seals need to be replaced, and a little velvet seal strip along the hinge end of the body should take care of any leakage there as a result of the bent pin. The meter and shutter speeds appear to be accurate. The mirror bumper foam will need replacement as well. Came with an SMC Takumar 1.8/55 covered with a 1A filter. The filter wasn't salvageable, but it did a good job of protecting the lens.Winter Park FL camera swap meet

6068187HiddenSpotmatic F. Very good condition when purchased but completely overhauled by Peter Emanuel of Asahiphoto in Brentford. It came with original leather case and a Takumar f1.8 / 55mm lens.

very superficial brassing and a tiny mark on the side of the lens mounting but otherwise in perfect working order.

The meter works and was tested but I tend to use a light meter in any case.

5837527HiddenHoneywell Pentax Spotmatic SP-1000 employee kit had the camera, a hard-sided Honeywell case, a Honeywell strobe, a Pentax f2 50mm lens, a Pentax f3.5 135mm lens and lens cleaning accessories. Not positive if I got it in 1977 or 1978.

Still have the camera, case and 50mm lens, but battery corroded in the camera and it doesn't work. Strobe finally literally fell apart and I gave my brother the 135mm lens when I bought a Tokina 80-200mm zoom. Later got a Pentacon f3.5 30mm lens which disintegrated while screwing it out of the camera a couple of years ago.

5817103HiddenHoneywell SP1000 bought from a member. A little worn out, few dings but otherwise in good conditions, the button plate is engraved "body assembled in Hong Kong" so I assume the production line of the K1000 was moved there when they stopped producing the SP1000. Now it has a 55 mm Tak 2.0 late model, with yellow aperture numbersPentax forum market!
