Personally, I'd be hard-pressed to get a fag paper between the build quality of the Spotmatics and K series Pentaxes, as the K series were largely bayonet mount derivatives of the Spots. Totally with you on the M series - the ME/Supers aren't serious cameras, MX is a bit better but if I were to apply my "trip up Mt Everest test" it would be a Spotmatic or KX !

Yes, I like the S1a, and if was for sale in the next street I'd have it, but postage from the US takes the shine off the bargain!
