I went to the B&H web site to price a new Pentax Digital Spot meter and the Pentax meters are no longer listed. Anyone know about this?

db1, you are correct B&H does not list either of the Pentax meters..though Pentax still has both on their website. Calumet still has the digital spot and the Zone version, Adorama only list used? Have not heard anything about them going away..use to have a Spot V, but use a Polaris with a 5 degree now.

I spoke to B&H and Adorama about this. Pentax has discontinued ALL meters. No reason given. So if you are looking for a new one, better start now. Adorama had one digital meter left.

I contacted Pentax USA here is their reply...


Mike,

Thank you for contacting Pentax USA, Inc.

At this time we do have the Spotmeter V in stock and we are expecting more
of the digital spotmeters in soon. While it may be possible that Pentax
Corporation in Japan will discontinue them, we have not been advised of that
in the customer service department.

We hope this helps

If you have further questions, please feel free to contact our Customer
Service Department at: 800-877-0155

Thanks again,

Mark Smith
Pentax USA, Inc.

take it for what it is worth....

Both Pentax spotmeters are listed as in stock on the Calumetphoto.com site.
