    If it MUST be an SLR, than Nikon FE2, or Oly OM as a close second. It sounds like a rangefinder would better fit the OPs original laundry list: Small, metal, manual, fast prime lens, minimal battery reliance, etc... Why not a CV Bessa or Zeiss Ikon? Or, of course a Leica M.

    Whatever it is, try it and make sure it works for you. Some people find the Olympus or M-series Pentaxes too small for easy handling. I don't have small hands but I have no problem with them. Some people love their huge viewfinder magnification, while others want to take everything in at once, so like less magnification. I love the Nikon FM cameras except for the viewfinders, which would be fine if I did not wear glasses.
    It's really a matter of what you like.
    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.
