Pentax Spotmatic F or Honeywell ES II?

I'm wondering whether to buy one of these two. The price is almost the same, Spotmatic lens is a 55mm 1.8 and ES 50mm 1.4
Thank u!

The Spotmatic F has the potential of being more reliable, but these are very old cameras and may need an overhaul.

The lenses are both fine lenses, so I would go for whichever is in the best condition.
Best regards, John

Also check to see whether the 1.4 lens is the older 8 element version.

The honeywell might be more collectable too, if that makes a difference.

Personally... I'd buy both!

The ESII is my favourite SLR of all time, but I've owned (and loved) the F aswell.

Yes, if you can afford it, buy both.
