    Ciao

    I would go for the Pentax any time. So much more popular and there are plenty around, what's more they are mechanical and will be repairable. The FX series are electronic and the possibility of getting them repaired is slim.

    Vibration is there, but for most purposes not a real problem;

    the leicaflex sl and sl2 had mechanically damped mirrors in an attempt to make an slr with as little vibration as a leica M rangefinder -- they came darn close, if my example is any indication. Never tried that penny trick.

    Best Yashica . . . Rangfinder, M42 mount, Yashica/Contax mount?
    The Yashica FR received a very good review from Popular Photography, Jan 1979 issue.

    You can always go with any body that has a mirror lockup feature. Vibration is rarely an issue; where vibration begins to matter is in close up/macro work, and sometimes it will set up a resonance in a lightweight tripod.

    Well, that and telephoto work. And it's generally more a problem at slower shutter speeds, like 1/30 to 1/2. Depending on the (35mm) camera, I found 1/15 or 1/8 to be worst.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    How about a medium format [MF] camera that does not have mirror bounce?

    Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.
