The Pentax SL is the perfect camera for someone looking for a reliable, well-built film camera. It boasts a full-metal construction with virtually no internal electronics to worry about. The metal built also gives it an amazing feel in hand without being too heavy. It also has one of the most satisfying winding mechanisms. It is a very minimalist camera with a classic and timeless look while making it very easy to use.

Focusing is done manually. The viewfinder is bright and big. No meter in this model.
"The SL was essentially a meter-less version of the Spotmatic as it lacked the behind the lens ttl meter. It was pitched by Asahi Optical to replace the legendary SV. The SL had the slot on the shutter speed dial to allow it to accept clip on meters (model SL) and was popular with those that preferred using a dedicated Spot Meter.
