Nikon Fm vs Pentax SV

Hi guys,

I am confused deciding between these two cameras. I use an external light meter so not having an integrated one is fine with me. But my biggest concern is the build quality and size.

I want the camera to be made of strong brass that can handle a few knocks without  getting heavy dings.I'm saying this because my first film camera the Canon T90 crashed against a pole while I was wiggling my way out of the crowd and cracked its base plate and now I'm stuck.

With regards to size, I checked online that both the cameras were roughly equal in size

Size (W x H x D) 140 x 92 x 50mm : Pentax

Dimensions (W x H x D): Approx. 142.5 x 90 x 60mm:Nikon

I don't think a 2mm difference in the width and height will be noticable.

Also are there any  build quality issues  of with any of these two cameras and which one would be easier to repair.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T90
