Thanks for the read, Adam. It's fine if people disagree; we all have
different needs and likes. Personally, I quite liked the MX (I prefer
smaller bodies) but I find it difficult to live without Av. The one MX
I've owned had the smoothest, silkiest film advance lever I have
*ever* used. I should've kept it just so I could play with that lever
while watching TV  :-)

I do agree on the LX. I wish they'd make a digital version. I'd be
happy with APS-C and manual focus, even with mechanical shutter
cocking like the Epson R-D1.

I've never used any Nikon film cameras so I'll be interested in
reading what you have to say about them.
