Like others have said already forget the MV, I bought one for my mother and it was perfect for her as she wantend something simple.

If you can live with DX coding and no override the P30 is a good camera, my favourite was a Chinon CE4, a great manual/auto K mount SLR that had all the features not found in the Pentax cameras aside fom the K2. I found the ME & ME Super awkward to use.
