Pentax ME (I)

The ME, manufactured between 1976 and 1979 is a aperture-priority AE camera. The only settings beside AE are X and B. The philosophy is similar to the OM-10, but the quality of the body beats the OM-10. My camera came with the SMC 1,4/50mm which is a very tiny 1,4-lens (49mm filters). The ME´s shutter is loud compared to a OM-1 or a Chinon CE-II. I like the fact, that the manual override of the shutter can be done without loosening any locks - but on the other hand there is no warning that you activated the manual override!

All pictures taken with the SMC 1,4/50mm on CN 200 ASA
