One reason to get the Super A / Super Program (same camera, different name for different parts of the world) is TTL flash support. If you happen to have an old flash like an Pentax AF280T lying around, it will work extremely well with those. IIRC the cheaper A series cameras don't support TTL flash.

I have to chime in and say...Super Program is your camera. I owned an AE-1 Program for a short while, and love the Super Program because:

1. It's small and light for an MF film camera. just barely bigger than an MX.

2. TTL Flash Support

3. Aperture Preview

4. Works with ALL pentax glass, even DA lenses, since the camera body can control the aperture (you lose Av and M this way, but Tv and Program work fine)

My Super Program is my favorite MF Body, but my LX is giving it a run for it's money.

EDIT: In fact, I will have a Super Program to sell you in a couple days!

IMO the mechanical Pentax cameras are the best in terms of handling and "feel".

I agree with you on that with one exception, the K2.
