    The FM3a was the last one to offer such a feature, and unlike the LX, all shutter speeds were available (the LX only offers the speeds faster than sync). The FM3a was introduced around the same time as the LX was discontinued.

    The LX is a really nice camera, but as battery-independance goes, it's not all that practical in real life, especially considering the F3/MD-4 combo is AA powered in its entirety and AA's are ubiquitous and dirt cheap.

    If there were a new p&s sized film camera that offered full manual controls as well as aperture priority I'd buy it brand new for about as much as I'd be willing to spend on a similar digital camera like a Canon G9. And it'd be nice if it metered for really fast films like up to 3200 or so. I get tired of my old rangefinders that only meter up to 800 and require me to do extra work in my head to get to 3200.
