Anyone here have some 16mm film options for someone with $2500?

Requirements:

*crystal sync (or at least upgradable to crystal sync)
*reflex viewfinder
*ability to be upgraded to s16 later on
*have the ability to hold many lenses (or at least readily adaptable with conversion mounts)

I've been kicking around the idea of a K-3, as they are cheap, but really I'd be kind of cornering myself as its nearly impossibly to attempt sound on one of these.

Why the K-3 if you have $2500? Better to invest in a new Kinor-16 SX-2M for around $1600:

and use the rest of the money to upgrade it for crystal sync with the help of Olex Kalynychenko in Ukraine:

or Anders Banke in Sweden:

and finally to Super16 with PL-mount at Les Bosher:

I beleive that would amount to $2500, and you would have a really great Super16 camera with a PL-mount and crystal sync.

That's what I would do, if I had the money.
