"Sunny 16" rule is a good fall back, especially with the latitude of HP5, which I tend to shoot mostly. I have a Zenit E also. Haven't weighed the two, but I suspect the Zenit is heavier. Might be wrong though.

Hi folks, new to the forum. I have a Spotmatic F with 55mm f/1.8, which works beautifully. I also have a third party lens (28mm f/2.8 Chinon) and the meter doesn't work with this lens. I'm guessing I need Pentax lenses for the meter to work? I'm looking at maybe picking up a SMC Takumar 28mm f/3.5. Can anyone advise if the meter in the Spotmatic would work with this lens?
Thanks.

Hi Kerrowdown, we're in Tain, Easter-Ross, on the shores of the Dornoch Firth. Thanks for the welcome!

Hi Everyone,

Just joined the forum and hoping to gain some advice on using my recently-acquired Spotmatic F. I'm based in the far north of Scotland and shoot a Fujifilm X-Pro2 as well as the Pentax, sharing M42 lenses between the cameras. My subjects are mostly landscapes and night-sky, but I'm developing an increasing interest in street photography and food.

My Spotmatic has the 55mm f/1.8 SMC Takumar, and I find them a great combo. I'm considering purchasing a 28mm f/3.5 SMC Takumar as well. Can anyone confirm whether this will allow the internal Spotmatic meter to work, as it does with the 55mm?

Thanks in advance, and looking forward to taking part.

Mark
