    One of my friends, another Pentax M42 enthusiast, has put up a new web site,
    dedicated to the Asahi (Honeywell) Pentax Spotmatic and ES cameras, and
    their line of Takumar lenses. I just checked the site, and there is very
    little on it just yet, but he plans to add copies of camera manuals, vintage
    ads, lens data sheets, photos of the cameras, lenses and accessories,
    downloadable repair manuals and a message board.

    His objective is to create what will be essentially an online encyclopedia
    all about the Pentax screw mount system. The site is going to be completely
    non-commercial, and nothing will be sold there.

    Persons with an interest in the classic Pentax line of cameras and lenses
    may wish to add the site to their bookmarks:

    Bookmarked for future reference.



    Getting an education was a bit like a communicable sexual disease. It
    made you unsuitable for a lot of jobs and then you had the urge to
    pass it on.

    I just emailed him my copies of the SMC Takumar lens data sheets. He'll be
    putting them up over the next couple of days. He also has original
    Honeywell Pentax advertising materials, manuals and even repair manuals to
    post. It should become a nice resource for those of us that collect, or
    use, the classic Pentax screwmounts.

    Looks like it could be a good site but I get nothing but the home
    page. Everything else is inactive..

    Just went online yesterday. Nothing but the basic web design is up yet. I
    believe that the lens data sheets will be first things posted over the next
    few days.

    Site should start becoming a useful resource over the next couple of weeks.
