> -Metering of the 6003 or better (no need for multi spot, just single spot)
> -Aperture priority AE (dial shutter to A, no speed indication needed)
> -Convertible lenses like the old JSK Symmars.
> -No fancy leather covers.
> -No TTL flash metering
> -Moderate use of plastic to lower weight and price.
> -New price below 2K $/euro
