    I never heard of optical DX-code sensors. Might be unreliable depending on varnish (IR-transmission) anyway.

    My Canon only flashes to let me know I need to manually set the ASA, then I set it, and it's fine.

    However, it also tells me that it doesn't know how many frames are on the roll (since apparently the DX also tells the camera if it's a 24 frame or 36 frame etc.) and that won't stop blinking as I don't know what the custom frame number setting is for my Canon 1v, so I can relate to your blinking problem... luckily for me, it senses when the film refuses to advance any further and re-winds when it senses it's at the end, however I'm always worried this will put wear on the camera gears over time, wish I could figure out how to set the frame count...

    Leica M7 started with mechanical then switched to optical part way through production

    I'd try to tape the DX sticker to the camera, then you don't need to keep re-sticking the stickers on each film cassette. My only pet peeve on this topic is the Nikon N75 and similar cameras. The manual ISO you set is not recognized in MANUAL mode. The frustration is with people (camera designers?) that think in MANUAL you don't want to use the camera's meter or you are trying to do something weirdo.

    There are so many GREAT classic cameras available these days (due to digital), why bother with cameras that have a conniption if there is no ASA code on the canister?

    Because my wife uses A Canon Digital and insists we share the more expensive lenses. This spurred to to collect one of each of many of the EOS film cameras.
