Which film pentax AF SLRs have MLU ??

So far I only find that the MZ-S, MZ60, ZX60 have MLU.

One bit of info I can not find, is on timer mode, which cameras have a mirror up delay ??

Also need manual control with that.

Besides the AF cameras mentioned, I believe that the K2, the KX and the LX all have mirror lockup.

Additionally, my PZ1p had MLU as part of a 2 second timer, which I think was also available with the MZ-S.

Of course I think that the MLU with 2 second timer was also incorporated into the digital models as well.

Oops. I left out the Pentax 645Nii and all the Pentax 67s (except for a very, very few sold at the very beginning.)
