This is what I ended up doing with mine...People seem to enjoy looking at them and playing with them during a shoot as they bring back a lot of memories- fwiw.

PhotoGuy thanks for the link! and cool shot. That gives me a good idea of what i should do with them.

ZoneV I like the idea of getting a fast lens ... now just finding the time.
Yes is a Minolta IV F & Tokina 80-200mm f/2.8, Soligor 105mm 2.8, Cosina 135mm 2.8 & 2 Olympus 24mm 2.8 & 50mm 1.8

Butts i agree i will keep it and try and use it one of these days

airfrogusmc it is a Pentax spotmeter V. I think they will get displayed first and use second

kf095 i would keep them as i like antiques anyway. there is a lot of other stuff that came with it, plates for holding the film and such. wood squares that look like they need a lens and would work with Graflex or Graphic view. i found what looks to be a first run leatherman and the weirdest thing is the skull of an animal.

i guess someday someone will be going thru my stuff like this after i take my dirt nap

Yep I had one and is a must for new zone system photographers because of the dial on the side. At a glance you at the dial you can see where your zones are all failing. IIRC the company Zone VI actually made a card that fir directly on the dial with zones printed on it. Great meter.

Speaking of honeywell I had a couple of 610 pressmasters.

IQ yes it is a spotmeter V and a company called zone VI made a card that you could buy that went on the dial with the zones printed on it. It made it easy to see where the zones were falling in relationship to what zone that you wanted to place your shadow thus making it easy fairly easy to figure out your development times.
