Topic: Pentax KX vs. MX - reliability
I bought in august a MX which asfter only one 35mm roll its shutter jammed. I'm no specialist and a servicing would cost way beyond buying another one, I was surprised to see how fragile the MX is, especially in contrast with less regarder Chinon CM4/Ricoh XR1 - KPentax mount cameras. I was wondering if, regadint the camera's reliability (both mechanical and electronical - light meter), the KX would the better. I know, KX it's bigger and heavier, and i love the MX's ergonomics (with its led lightmeter), size and all (shutter sound ), but better a bigget camera than a non working one.
ps. I like a lot these mechanical cameras being able to work even if their light meter is broken, without any elecronics
