I don't have one and don't intend to buy one. To me the main flaw of the MZ-S is that it just can't work with my DA40 and my DA70. There is no control of aperture from the body. Both my MZ-7 and MZ-6 provide that.

On the other hand, if you stick to FA lenses, this is irrelevant.
I am not certain about the pancake lenses (but I don't see why they would not work).

But aperture control is possible with the MZ-S camera. It is controlled from the on/off switch (similar to the way aperture is controlled on the K20D).

The final prices on a eBay

I was shocked to learn that several of the MZ-S cameras eventually sold for between $550 and $700!

That is more than the cost of a new K20D!

Makes me consider selling mine.

Just in case anybody is interested, KEH has a couple of MZ-S bodies for sale:
KEH Camera: Pentax Auto Focus - Camera Bodies - MZ-S QUARTZ DATE 35MM SLR AUTO FOCUS CAMERA BODY
The prices seem to be in line with the market.
