    The Pentax MX is all manual, quiet and smooth and quite reliable; slightly smaller than the OM-1; shutter speed and aperture are visible in a finder the size of the OM-1's. The ME Super goes to 1/2000, has a slightly smaller (but excellent) finder, is reliable too.
    The LX is a pro-level camera, tough and refined like the pro-level Nikons, Canons, etc. 1/2000 top speed, mechanical between 1/75 and 1/2000. Meters to EV -6.5. Big, very clear and contrasty finder, excellent interchangeable finder system. About the size and weight of the Nikon FM/FE series.

    If you can, try out the different recommendations. Find what you like best. All have some great lenses. I have Pentaxes and Nikons; I like the feel and ergonomics of either, but prefer the Pentaxes. I also love the Olympus OM series and their ergononics, especially the OM-1; I could have gone with Olympus instead and been satisfied, except for the lack of interchangeable finders.

    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.

    If you need more flex b/c of DoF than 1/500 or 1/1000, simply slip on a ND filter. An option allowing you a bigger choice of bodies. I'm not a lover of these high shutter speeds as they tend to have greater deviation from specified. I usually shoot one or two speeds below the minimum time becaue of this. Admittedly, I also dislike electronic shutters and stay away from them as much as possible. Nothing like going out and having a dead battery and then remembering it is the backup battery in the camera.

    I really would not like to deal with ND filters. They're a nuisance, especially with color.

    Also, 1/2000 (and sometimes above) can be very useful when using long teles...

    It's not just about stopping speeding bullets.
