An MZ-5 update with a superb meter range (0-21EV) shutter speeds to a useful 1/2000sec and a pathetic flash sync of just 1/100sec. Just don't try fill-in flash on an even halfway sunny day. Predictive focus redeems the situation a little, as does the excellent metering system (from the inventors of TTL metering). But oh that sync speed is so restricting.
