Interesting! When I was 18 I wanted an F, as I had seen used in Blowup, but could not afford one, hence my username and avatar. On my 21 birthday I bought a Pentax Spotmatic but always regreted it. I moved from NZ to UK in 1973 and in 1976 I sold the Pentax to a flatmate and bought an F2SB which I upgraded to an F2AS as soon as the DP-12 was available. I did most of my shopping at 'Fox Talbot' in the days when Gray of 'Grays of Westminster' worked there. I think now that I prefer the softer lines of the F2.
