I'm completely happy with the black Pentax MX I've had since I was a teen - got it in 1979 (40 years ago, yikes!). Small but robust, easy to use but very capable. Great optics available inexpensively today. I had it CLA'd recently and expect it will last *another* 40 years. I do have another broken one that I keep as a parts camera, but so far I've never needed it.
