As long as you're not dumb about open and closing them to preserve the meter, no issues on build quality. Lastly, these are all cool cameras, but there's also something romantically "White Lines" about whipping out the PM67 for a shot...
Of course, I will plead guilty to the charge of being emotionally infatuated with the GF670, and thus not entirely objective in my comments. It's just that I have immense respect for a company like Fuji that is willing to take the chance and produce new models of this type of camera in this day and age! No disrespect for the Plaubel intended.
