Always a Favorite – Asahi Pentax H2

Always a favorite with us the Asahi Pentax H2 – we like the clean lines and simple straightforward design. The H2 uses M42 mount lenses but can’t use all of the M42’s out there. Some Yashica and Fujinon M42 mounts aren’t always a good fit.

Here’s one from around mid-1960 




If you can find a nice working H2 or S2 then we highly recommend it for your collection. They’re as manual as they come – no built-in exposure meter and a top shutter speed of only 1/500th of a second but their classic design win the day out in the field.
