My favorite use for the MX is a near perfection *normal view*, compact camera. Put a cheap Pentax-M or -A series 50/2 50/1.7 or 50/1.4 on it and you have one of the brightest 1:1 viewfinders imaginable - you can shoot with both eyes open without any problem. Plus it's tiny, bulletproof and completely mechanical, all except for the meter.
I keep an M50/1.7 to use with my MX specifically for that reason. M50/1.7, or M28/2.8 at hyperfocal.
