I threw one into my KEH order. It was only $12 in EX. I like to play around with a stripped down camera body and the 4004 and 5005 are certainly that. No indication of shutter or aperture the camera selects in one of the autoexposure modes. And no DX override or exp comp. A few years ago I tried out an EM. Kept it a few months and sold it. Couldn't live with the fact the EM doesn't have a manual mode. Have you ever had a 4004 or 5005? The shutter and aperture dials on top are kinda weird-gotta get used to that. But it does have some good features. Exp lock, AF, TTL flash, built in flash, timer(something the awesome Pentax 645 was stripped of), and motordrive, but no continuous mode.
