    I'm a regular ETRSi user, and I love my 50 MC. I do use a spot meter a lot, but I have the AEII prism and it meters perfectly.

    I too have an AEII prism but also work a lot with light and shadow going for details in high light areas while letting shadows drop into darkness and an incident meter helps a lot with that.

    The Luna Pro SBC and Luna Lux both use 9v batteries, though I wouldn't recommend the Luna Lux.

    There are multiple differences between MC and PE glass. If given a reasonable price go for PE. It is newer has half stop detentes and upgraded lens design. I believe the MC glass is the oldest. There is EII glass and PE glass. I may be missing some iterations. I am just mentioning what is currently rolling around in my camera bag. Besides the half stop settings some I've read there is no noticeable difference in prints between PE glass and EII glass in some focal lengths. There is definitely a difference between a 150mm PE and a 150mm 3.5 MC.

    ETRS lenses have gotten so cheap recently I would go for the newest models. The reason is they are less likely to need servicing. Servicing an ETRS lens now is not a great idea because it costs more to service than just buying a new one.

    I use the Luna Pro SBC with my Bronica. I have an unmetered prism and the SBC has done me well.
