I have a newly acquired Pentax ME Super Program. It's acting just like nearly evey other "ME" type camera I've had - the shutter button must be pressed down HARD to get it to fire. I ordered a winder today, so I hope not to have to worry about this problem in the future, but is this trully a common affliction of this breed? Or is it more a sign of age? I have a Konica camera with a similar slow-firing, full-press shutter button too, and it sits on the shelf most of the time. Those electrical contacts must be getting brittle.
