I'd definitely keep the MX. It's reliable little gem and a perfect backup camera. I have no experience of the MZ-S but would keep that one too, unless you need to raise cash for something else. The MZ-S seems to fetch a high price on ebay.

I won't advise; it's hard to guess what you will enjoy most in the long run. Shooting a variety of film bodies is an indulgence most of us can afford now if we couldn't have afforded it 20 years ago. There's really nothing wrong with it...
So true!

I see these excellent older cameras at auction and the desire to own is just as strong as when I saw them new on the shelves 20, 30, or 40 years ago. The only difference is that now they are cheap and now I HAVE THE MONEY!


(Really would like a good Nikon FM2...naw! Still too much money...)
