Default Name this SLR

I figure we could use a new post here.

This camera had a glorious life span of 17 years. It had a compact and light weight design. It has a multiple exposure mechanism that permitted you to wind back the film to any desirable frame It has the most comprehensive metering system available at the time

Reliability was a key fact. It was sealed against dust, dirt and moisture, the shutter worked without a battery. All buttons and dials are weather and dust sealed, a unique feature not found on other professional cameras of the day It has the most innovative interchangeable view finders even by today's standards.


Lets see if this enough to start the guessing.

Perhaps the Pentax LX, since your other post was on the ME?

It was (or um still is) a really nice film camera. Smaller by far than the F's from those other two bands.
