    My advice to ste is to go for the MX which is a serious piece of equipment (if you can find it) For instance you can, if required fit a motordrive (as opposed to just a winder, user interchangeable focussing screens, aperture indication and all mechanical operation, as is the Nikon FM2, but the Pentax is a fraction of the price. My black model cost me UKP125 some years ago and is very reliable.

    Hi! I have had an MX since approx 1980 and it's still doing the bizz. Being fully manual it's also simpler than the ME which has aperture priority metering. So if you prefer to have your own mind there's only one choice.

    If it's really just to put in the pocket ( jacket I presume ) and needs to be small then an MX with a pancake lens is VERY small for an SLR. I wouldn't touch the ME, those buttons, yuk.

    Yes, I detest the ME Super - no DOF preview and revolting buttons. But the MX - wow.

    I have always liked the ME Super and have just added an MX to my collection.

    Mind you, I detect a touch of phiggyism about this thread....

    Well they certainly can't touch you for it.
