I would like to hear some opinions about the viewfinder of this camera, re brightness in particular. Is it in any way comparable to KX, LX or Super Program? And, does anyone have an idea of the price today for it's silver special edition, with the 43mm, in a wooden box?
Do you know what is special about the special edition? Thanks !

there is a history of very limited production for the japanese market pentax models (the one after the MZ-3 was the LX2000 far more desirable IMO and far harder to find as well they only made 1000 pieces
