    Learn how to shoot without a meter. Its really easier than ones think for general shooting.

    Or, Get a Nikon FE!!!

    BTW, the Chinon CE II is an aperture priority and full manual capable M42 body that may be able to use your lenses. Instead of dedicated MLU, the mirror goes up first when using the timer. I believe there were also Fujica bodies that are AE and M42 but I don't know if they have MLU or the same mirror functionality of the Chinon.

    I wonder how would you know that the OP doesn't know how to shoot without a meter? Wanting to have a camera with certain features doesn't mean that one can't use a camera without those features.

    Not many cameras with auto-exposure have mirror-lockup. certainly none of the mid-range cameras.. including the Olympus OM2, Nikon FE, etc.
    That leave only a handful of the top-end cameras. nikon F3, pentax LX, NO on the canon F1N, NO on the OM4.
    Go not to the elves for counsel, for they will say both yes and no.

    Yep. Such a great camera.
    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.

    You could also look at the Minolta XD-11. A body design commissioned by Leica for their R4 SLR, very quiet mirror, compact, Manual mode, Aperture Priority, Shutter Priority, full Auto if you have the corresponding lenses... and a magnificent line-up of Rokkor glass. Quite cheap too, bought mine with a 50mm/f1.7 lens for 100€, then added a 28/2.8, a 50/1.4 and a 135/2.8 for less than an extra 100€.

    While the XD7 (aka XD-11) is a great camera it sadly does not have MLU.

    Wrong. The 1 and 3 series have and many other EOS (maybe most or even all) feature mirror prefire which is nearly as good.
