Looking for the next body

I think this question remains unanswered. In my experience as a longtime user of two Z-1p bodies (European designation), the base plate tends to break next to the battery door which can render the door lock a bit unreliable (not that the battery would drop out however). And, as with the MZ series, the flash popup spring may break.

Pentax MX with smc Pentax-M 1:4 200mm, Ilford HP5 film/ID-11 developer. Negative copied using Pentax K-1 with smc Pentax-D FA 50mm Macro (as always, the image looks better on Flickr than here).

Limited dynamic range should not be a problem with a properly developed B&W negative, although it is likely to be one with slides. Colour negatives are somewhere in between. Their overall dynamic range is also not too high but in order to counter the mask the blue channel needs much more exposure than the green and red channels (some scanners/software can compensate for that during exposure).

I find that with silver-based B&W films the X1 really brings out the grain but I haven't yet attempted scanning medium format with it. Nevertheless I would not specifically recommend it for B&W work. The Nikon Coolscan LS-9000 I used before is much more forgiving with grain but tends to have issues with film flatness even with the glass holder. So if the flatbed scanner is sharp enough with MF it might still be the easiest solution.
Edit: as suggested by Cooltouch and others...
