After my old Zenit 122 has failed (the fabric on the shutter started falling apart), I am looking for a new body to use. I'd like to have something better than the previous camera.
I absolutely need a split screen focusing, and the TTL lightmeter. A metal shutter would be a pretty good improvement as well, but it's not critical. Also, it would be perfect if the camera wasn't battery-dependent (i.e. the only thing that would stop working after the battery is drained would be the lightmeter), especially if the camera was designed for a hard-to-get mercury-based battery.
Are there any cameras that meet those requirements?
