Pentax Z-20 35mm auto-focus slr review

This is a review of one of the best specified models in the Pentax Z series of auto-focus 35mm film cameras – the Pentax Z-20.

Canon Canonet 35mm rangefinder

This Canon Canonet, made in about 1961, is most notable because it looks a bit upside down compared to most cameras.

Pentax MZ-M 35mm SLR

I’m having a bit of a run on the Pentax MZ series at the moment and my recent purchase of the Pentax MZ-M helps in my aim to own every model produced. As is stands I have nearly all the entry/mid level examples except the MZ-10 but I still need to get some of the top end models, MZ-6, MZ-3 and MZ-S. I will probably be able to get the MZ-6 and the MZ-3 but the MZ-S is still selling […]
