My preference would be the ZM or ZE-X. Not interested in the ZE/ZE Quartz since that model has no shutter speed dial.

Hi - I've had a ZE and a ZE-X, so I wanted to pass along my experiences with them. There are a couple ZE-2's on ebay right now, but, it has been my experience that these cameras are among the worst-built, least reliable pieces of junk to ever come out of Japan. Only Fijica's AX series are worse (or equal). So be sure the thing works 100% before you buy, and don't expect even the working ones to be reliable.
