Yes, but how many keep the automatic diaphragm?

That is one thing the Rolleiflexes do: With an adapter they are the same as a native M42 camera, plus you get a bayonet mount!

How many "M42" cameras offer interchangeable film magazines, 2 viewfinders (one a WLF), built-in motor drive, 3 shutter buttons, TTL flash, one-hand operation and looks like a mini-Hasselblad (SL 3003)?
