Another alternative would be the Yashica TL-Electro. I own one and the viewfinders are similarly bright. The TL-Electro also has mirror lock-up and a higher flash sync speed (nominally 1/125 sec, though likely 1/90 sec in actuality) than most M42s.

Best of all they can usually be had (with the sadly flare-prone Yashinon DX 50mm f/1.4) for about $30.
I see a Fujica ST605 http://cgi.ebay.com/FUJICA-ST605n-CA...QQcmdZViewItem went for $10.49 yesterday, which is in the same range as the two I bought (one since sold).
