Pentax KX.
I have had two for twenty years. Batteries only power the open aperture metering, so even if they die (mine usually last longer than the average Conservative party leader does) the full shutter speed range of 1 sec to 1/1000 is still available. There is also no problem with servicing or spares and some wonderful glass available at affordable prices.
