Should I keep the Zx-10?

I currently have two autofocus film cameras:
  • SF10
  • ZX-10
Besides the panorama mode, is there anything really better about the ZX-10 than the SF10?

I'm trying to eliminate as many redundancies in my camera collection as possible, and I don't really need more than one autofocusing film camera.

AF should be faster.

I'd probably hang on to the one with styling I preferred, as it's not likely to serve a critical professional role either way, and I can't think of a functional reason to pick one overwhelmingly...

Otherwise, everyone knows that 'Zs' and 'Xs' are cooler... 🙂

Except the ZX series has a very nasty flaw, which I've not heard of in the SF series -- the plastic gear failure.

Get rid of the ZX before the mirror gear fails, and it will fail eventually. I have a SF1N and love the 80's style it has and it feels way better built than any of the ZX camera I've had.
