I would hardly regard the MZ series ( apart from the MZ-S ) as in any way 'classic' .

These were the lightweight , plastic products which heralded the demise of Pentax 35mm offerings , and in no way a patch on earlier products .

I got hold of a brand new MZ-60 and shot a roll of film the other week, brought back memories, but .........what a piece of plastic junk!!! Feels so cheap and nasty

The simple design is what I would like.  The build was as you both say, could do with beefing up. I had mine unitl 2010.

I have an MZ 50 up in the attic somewhere - worst camera I ever bought - at least it was cheap .

I suppose what I would REALLY like to see would be a digital 67 , to sit above the 645D and take on the best that ANYONE else can offer .
