Oh crap. 3 pages now (and I have a lot of posts per screen.)
Maybe it's time to quit? Lots of people see no appeal in "obsolete" camera designs (hell, it was introduced in 1953 right? More obsolete than the Hasselblad 500C which was introduced 4 years later, but not as obsolete as the Rollei TLR's which have been here since before the war...)
And you need to understand, I've done some very fulfilling work with Nikons, Canons (only MF -- never used the AF Canon), Hasselblad, Rollei -- even the Lubitel was capable of showable results.
I chose to equip myself the way I do because it works best for me doing the kind of work that I do. If I shot sports, or had to get images to the client ASAP, or was a John Shaw kind of macro guy, or whatever, I might very well choose differently (not for travel photography though -- Leicas rock in that arena too).
Kind of like my TDI Jetta -- my friend told me I was a fool to drop an additiona $1,200 on the diesel engine back when fuel was still $0.79 per gallon. It took 70,000 miles before I saved that amount (gotta love 42 MPG at 85 mph cruise), but now (4 years after buying the car) with 147,000 miles on the car, I know I made the right choice. Is a diesel right for everyone? Nope. Is a Leica M? Nope.
But it is for me.
