    Well, if you want new -- Cosina "Voigtlander" is selling the Bessaflex, and it uses the 42mm threadmount lenses, such as the Spotmatic. Nice thing is -- the meter really works... Gp to cameraquest.com for more info

    For people looking for a user body then various Ricohs are hard to beat. The things are almost free usually selling for 1/2 what a similar spec Pentax would sell for. Down sides are few.

    I've got a Nikon N80, which is a fairly new camera, reasonally priced, but one of the few consumer cameras that has a DOF preview. The DOF is invaluable. It has help up well, the past 4 years I have had it; although I may have killed it yesterday - I was shooting the surf and got drenched by a big wave. Fortunately, I didn't have my LF gear with me.

    One of my first cameras was the MX. Very solid and very reliable. I'm trying to buy it back from the guy who bought it from my brother who in turn bought it from me.

    I doubt you could go wrong with any of the cameras that you've mentioned.

    I rarely use the DOF preview. And these days I shoot mostly with a RF, so DOF preview is moot. When I did use it, I strugged to see anything in the darkened viewfinder.

    I have a Pentax ME Super, which I really love.
    Fully Manual mode, plus the Aperture Priority if you want to grab a quick shot.
    Also, it is really tiny for an SLR. (like the MX)
