Group Description

The Asahi Pentax Spotmatic Users Group. A group of photographers devoted to the use, ownership and promotion of Pentax Spotmatic cameras. This Group has been formed for the discussion of any subjects related to these cameras and their associated Takumar lenses and other accessories. The other prime reason for the creation of this Group is the ability for us to share our images with other Spotmatic users around the world. Owners of pre-Spotmatic Pentax cameras are also welcome here.

If you are after information about Spotmatic batteries, please go to the FILES section and look at Spotmatic Battery Information.pdf .

If you want to know how to cure a yellowed 50mm F1.4 lens, please go to the FILES section and look at How to Cure 50mm Lens Yellowing.pdf .

For those looking for a reputable technician, go to the FILES section, REPAIR PLACES and then to Pentax Camera Service (Eric Hendrickson). This will mainly apply to those in North America but is not meant to exclude others.

For a table listing all cameras in the Spotmatic family and their features please go to:


Many thanks to the late Paul "ppro" Provencher for compiling and maintaining this valuable table.
