It depends on the camera.
I agree the Pentax MX puts the meter too "in your face"; for me it interferes in composition.
That and the stiff shutter-speed dial are the only things that keep the MX from being "perfection" for me personally. But I forgive.

Somehow I doubt it would be well received. They're a sensitive bunch.
Yes, sometimes that high sensitivity produces a lot of noise too!

Ok maybe but then a query of how many of them are using eg Auto Takumars (on adapters) for the single coated signature, pastel colours or adaptive compression.

Cause I do that on E6, C41 and mono, a lot of the time...

Are we disinterested in what they do?

Normally people giggle at my film cameras...
So how many of us (film types) use single coated lenses regularly?
I've only used SC lenses this month.

I often use the Nikkor series E 50mm, which has some single coated elements.

On pentax SMC takumars and BBAR tamrons are my usual lenses, but the Super-Tak 55 is single coated and very good.

So I guess both of my 'normal' lenses on film are single coated. That said, if I'm going out specifically to shoot (as opposed to just having my camera with me) I usually choose a 35/105mm combo instead.

For a while I was also VERY fond of a Ricoh 55 1.4, single coated, naturally, that was a very good lens. With the demise of my interest in M42, however, it's in line to be sold.

I use an auto takumar 55/2 on a SP, for sunny days, the rest of the Pentax lenses are SMC just started Pentax again after selling my S1a in '76, don't see many single coated lenses any more.

Here's my two cents:
If I'm asked to shoot in a friend’s party, "Digital Photography" is the winner by far. First of all it sort of guarantees the end result and secondly it's instant.
Offcourse this comes with the price
But if I'm taking photos as a bobby (which I am most of the times), then "film photography" is an absolute joy.
IMHO film photography and digital photography are two very different hobbies.
I love shooting with my little MX so much that I barely take out my digital gear when I'm going out or on a trip.

I'm pretty much the same way anymore, Samwise. I find that if I'm packing gear for a photo outing, my digital is almost an afterthought. One of my first choices is my Pentax 67, but if I'm shooting 35mm, one of my top choices is my good old, indestructible MX. For film, I have a small assortment of ISO 200 stuff -- Kodak and Fuji -- which I prefer. I like the slower film in the hopes of having smaller grain, and I will usually down-rate the ISO somewhat for increased saturation.
