Best ZX model?

Hi all- I have an older ZX-10 that seems to be kaput. It has a nice lens though, and I would like to replace the body with another Pentax that accepts the same lens. With all the available ZX models, which offers the best features and reliability? Do all the ZX models accept the same lenses?

Thank you!

Yes, you should have no problems there. I think the ZX-5n might be the most popular choice of 'best,' some like the ZX-L, and the ZX-7 is reasonably OK.

K100d's write up on several of the MZ/ZX bodies is worth reading:

Which lens do you currently have on the camera? The aperture ringless FA-J lenses will be restricted to auto or shutter priority mode on certain bodies but they can still be used with good results.
