A few years ago i bought a chrome canon pellix QL for wich i paid far to much,mainly because the mirror was damaged wich left the camera useless for shooting. But you know i had to have one and this was the only one available at that time.
Some time later the Nikon F4 with fixed mirror came my way, as far as i know it's a one off,as nothing can be found about it in documentation and the body has no special markings wich could suggest it's a fixed mirror version.( the trouble with the fixed mirror in the F4 is you lose the AF capability).
Then came the black canon pellix (non QL)this one is in great shape and the price i paid made up for what i've "lost" on the chrome pellix.
Still interested in fixed mirror slr's i recently found the canon EOS RT, here canon seemed have to have solved the AF issue so the camera works like any "normal" EOS.
There's some other fixed mirror cameras about but they are rather rare and expensive, like the nikon F2 high speed and the canon F1 high speed. Never say never but i guess i will never own one of those...
To make a long story short, here's the link to the wikipedia pages on these cameras, saves me a lot of typing and translating.
