Hello Pentax enthusiasts,

There are still copies available of the second edition of my book!

It is a deluxe edition with a hard cover, a notch and a red reading ribbon.
The volume of the book is 288 pages.

This new edition focuses on collecting and using old Asahi Pentax cameras and Takumar lenses.
The book covers all cameras: the Asahiflexes, the S/H types, the Spotmatic, its derivatives and the electronically controlled Electro Spotmatic, ES and ES II.

Furthermore, the Motor Drive and Data cameras. The American models are also discussed, such as the Honeywell Pentax Spotmatic IIa.

In addition to all Takumar lenses, all accessories are also included, such as bellows and intermediate rings, filters and microscope adapters.

Separate chapters deal with maintenance and use of this 45-year-old or older equipment.

Of course, the history of the manufacturer is also discussed. The company was founded on November 27, 1919.

The price of the book is € 32.50 excluding shipping costs.

Orders can be made directly with me and payment by PayPal.
The book is also available on eBay.

Regards,

Gerjan van Oosten
