AF Era Pentax SLR w/ Spot Metering-- ZX-5, PZ-1P

Looking for an AF Pentax SLR with switchable metering, most importantly switchable to spot metering.

Instead of carrying around an old MF SLR, my ETRS, and a spot meter, I'd like something I can combine the spot meter needs (have a decent superzoom I can crank out to 200mm, which should work decently as a spot meter when taking zone readings for tripod work with MF), as well as my 35mm needs.

The more beat up the better, as this will be an all-purpose hiking machine.

Let me know what you have.

I've got several that I'd be willing to give away for peanuts. Drop me a PM, and we can discuss.

Pm me. I have an MZ-S that we are no longer using since my wife bought an X-5. I'll throw in a 1 m Pentax remote cord because we've lost the cover for the remote plug.
