hamey Posted October 14, 2010 Share #241 Posted October 14, 2010 (edited) Advertisement (gone after registration) I'm new to this forum this year. I still shoot mostly with film. I hope it will be possible even a fem more years.Having browsed through the forum I came across this amazing thread, as I now have had the great pleasure to read. After this great historic journey back in the really good old SLR days, I wonder myself if the digital DSLR / EVIL camera built for the same image quality, will ever be as little energy-intensive, compact, lightweight and easy to use, as these masterpieces? Which camera manufacturer should be able to create such a product? I can not stand the thought of carrying around one of these large and heavy "digital containers" from either Nikon or Canon. Forgive me, for at all to mention the word ”digital” in this venerable classic thread. It always pleases me when people still want to use the Reflex system, I have been using it since 1973 (SL) AND STILL HAVE IT. Currently still use the R7's, R8, R9 and the M7 and LOVE 'EM, ALL could never give them up, simply the best Leica's. This afternoon I held SOLM's new toy called the X1, (Camera House in Melbourne) couldn't operate it because the battery went dead and the sales person told me it's needs charging, what a JOKE, 2,500 $ Aus with it's tiny controls and build defiantly a woman's toy perfect for the hand bag, an absolute insult to the R system. I am feeling embarrassed that whenever I go photographing with my R cameras there is somebody going to be out there with these battery operated electronic toys masquerading as Leica cameras. dread the thought. Ernst Leitz must be rolling a-round in his grave to what they (Solms) are doing to his famous brand. LONG LIVE THE LEICA R. ken.
