    Nice!! For some reason I really like the Pentax screwmount cameras/lenses. I learnt photography on my dad's battered black Spotmatic F. The meter failed on that one (and cannot be fixed apparently) so I bought another and this is still my main camera when I don't shoot MF. I think they are great solid cameras and both optical and build quality of the SMC/Super-Multi-Coated Screwmount Pentax lenses are not too bad either. I am less familiar with the K-mount cameras but I guess I would enjoy something like the K1000, which really looks like a Spotmatic with a bayonet mount.

    Sweet collection. I have an Asahi Spotmatic and an ME Super, too.

    When I'm shooting 35mm, my go-to is my MZ-S - I've always loved that camera. The old ME will take all the lenses I bought for the MZ-S, so I make sure it gets used, too.

    Great set. I used a Pentax Spotmatic F & a couple of S1a's (H1a's in the US) for professional work in the 70's/early 80's before selling them to go K mount. Shooting rock concerts with screw mount lenses was a real pain

    I have a few Pentax's again & must put them together sometime and take a photo, a couple are here in Turkey, the rest in the UK.

    I seem to have:

    3 MX's 1 working not sure if I still have both the dead ones.
    The wifes ME
    KX
    Spotmatic
    Spotmatic F
    S3 - was a paper weight when I was given it shutter curtains shot.

    Also two CE4 Chinons, the Camera Pentax should have made instead of the ME :D
    Also a few Pentax lenses.
