I like the MX enough that I bought a second one just to have a spare.
I never had any problems with the magic needles, and with a motor drive
the MX is a really responsive camera, ready to shoot the next frame as
fast as anything except far more expensive cameras.  Perhaps that's one
reason why the PZ-1p is my favourite AF body; that, and the two-wheel
interface - I never really liked MZ bodies, even though I have an MZ-S
(although I must admit the AF on the MZ-S is much better than the PZ-1p).
