With this S1 The S/H part of my Pentax collection is now complete,still need 2 types of spotmatic and a K1000 to get everything complete. This poses kind of a luxury problem as there is very little i still need, the hunt is over, so what next? I could go for those very rare ones, but at prices that would allow me to travel to any place in Europe for over a week i very much doubt i'll be spending money on any more camera's my health isn't inproving and i feel i will have to do my traveling now i'm still able. ( got a serious warning from my doctor will know more in Januari)
The S1 came with the proper period 55mm 2.2 lens and the early type clip on meter

Pleasant memories of Asahi. My first reflex was a Pentax. Cannot recall which number or whether it had the 2.2 or a faster normal. Good spread from white to black with Ilford negatives. The spring loaded stop-down 135 was bought.
Probably because it was pocketable, a leica with the collapsible Summicron followed.
