    I bought this off the 'Bay about a year or so ago. It's a great rangefinder camera with a super sharp and contrasty Zuiko 42mm F1.7. It is a bit chunky, though, for my small hands, and the shutter can be heard a mile away!

    Nice outputs...she's a beauty!

    Really wish more 70's rangefinders had a spot meter available....who am I kidding....I wish any film RF - incliding Leica, Zeiss, and Voigtlander- gave that choice. I'd have one for sure!!! The SP is still ahead of its time.

    Thanks, the SP is great. I haven't used the meter, though, just good old sunny 16!

    lovely set, crisp and love the use of shallow DOF in some.
    I have an SP that needs repairs....
