I still miss my SLR I had in the 70's, the Pentax K1000 (35mm lens).

I want to replicate that experience but I want in body stabilization so I can keep the lens small and light, and I want a touchscreen LCD.


You can only replicate that experience by using the same camera!

However, I used a manual SLR (Exakta Varex IIa) in the 60s and 70s and I now enjoy using several Micro Four Thirds cameras, which offer considerably better image quality and much greater capabilities, and they are smaller and lighter than the old Exakta, and have a much more extensive range of lenses than was available in the 70s.

Thanks for the reply. My beloved Pentax got in a flooding incident when I had loaned it to someone, but I would not want to go backwards, especially using film!
