I know that both of my medium format bodies can be hard on batteries if you use bulb mode, because the batter is constantly keeping the shutter open. The SP I'm still using the old batteries that were in it when I bought it.

A lot of people hold this view, but to be honest, The batteries are cheap, easily available (here, I don't know about Georgia), and have a very long life, so it never really bothered me. Most of my regular cameras have electronically timed shutters, and despite shooting ~100 rolls in the last 6 months between three electronically timed cameras (Bronica ETRSi, Pentax 67, SuperProgram) I've never given it a second thought. If photos are critical, I throw a spare battery in the bag.

The SuperProgram/SuperA isn’t really plastic—it has the same/similar build to the ME Super. Unfortunately like the ME Super it fails your other requirement in that it uses buttons to set shutter speed.
