MX1 part 2

Hi all again. A little while ago I asked of comments about choosing between a Lx7, Rx100, X20 & the MX1. Today I have gone for the MX1. Reasons ?? It just seemed to feel right when I had the chance to get me mits on it, compared to the others, Pentax cameras are all I've ever used (apart from my lovely Mamiya 645, sorry to name drop) and feel I have a kind of loyalty to a trusted brand, mushy I know. From what I can make of it the biggest issue raised is the RAW writing time. If I'm in a rush, which rarely happens if I'm holding a camera, I'll use JPEGS. Lastly, at 250 notes from SRS Microsystems it was difficult not to hit the confirm button. That said, I would paid over the 300 that T4 were asking. Thanks again for your previous comments.
PS. Anybody know why I have to wind on my shutter lever twice to get the shutter cock on a ME Super??

You might want to start a new thread about your ME. That's not how it's supposed to work normally, but it CAN happen if you don't wind the film all the way the first time.
