Week 2 of the project features the camera that started it all – the Pentax Spotmatic (old readers may recall the tale of woe associated with this camera). Or at least, it would have featured said camera if it hadn’t developed a mirror flip down problem. So I am using the Honeywell Spotmatic – a virtual copy without hotshoe (who needs flash anyway?!). It’s a hefty piece of gear so I expect slightly more difficulty, but I am optimistic!

On a related note, I was recently asked about some old M42 lens, and came across some sites that mentioned that the SMC Takumar 50/1.4 is quite radioactive. Does anyone know for sure? Would love some help with verifying this information!
