I had an MX body from a charity shop for £5. I got Eric to service it and gave it to a niece along with a 50mm lens. I still have my chrome and black MXes...

One day over beers, I'll have to tell you how I snuck a 115 year old grade 3 L.C. Smith shotgun into my gunsafe.

What kind of shooting do you do that demands 5fps? I Thought it might be nice to have that kind of speed for when I shoot my kids' sports events but then I thought about the cost of film and processing. I'll stick with my 7D2 for that stuff. It's paid for after all.
I donít want continuous 5fps, I want the faster wind in single frame mode. I was used to the motor, and the winderís advance is very noticably slower.

Thanks for the info. It never occurred to me that the motor drive would be usefully faster in single shot mode. It does make perfect sense though.
