    I was and still am a big fan of the Spotmatics and for that matter the previous similar looking models. For me they lost something when they introduced the bayonet bodies. I feel they lost that lovely balanced classic look. There are some cameras you can simply put on a table and sit there with a drink and just simply enjoy their aesthetic quality. Screw mount Pentaxes, all rangefinder leicas and Nikon F types, without the metered head all, to my eye, have this quality.

    Dear William,

    I'm not sure I'd go quite that far but I see your point.

    Cheers,

    Dear William,

    I only said I wasn't sure...

    Right now I can't drink as much as I'd like because of the painkillers.

    Cheers,

    R.

    Roger, I'm sorry to hear of your predicament and hope you get better soon, mind you I was thinking about a nice cuppa or a coffee.
