Just curious what your opinions are. Who here uses a rangefinder camera? What kind? Benefits I can think of: Smaller since there's no prism like in a SLR Less moving parts = more reliable, quiet Good for "street photography" since it's less intrusive than a SLR Hinderances I can think of: You don't get to immediately see the effect of the DOF you chose Off-set of what you see and what your lens sees will make composition tricky I take a lot of close photos (anywhere betwen 1 to 3 feet of disance) where the ~2" of viewfinder/lens offset would make a noticable difference. How do you get around something like this w/ a rangefinder, or do you just not do it at all? I guess macro shots are out of the question. Is this more of a people camera? How do you adjust for different focal lengths on the models where you can change the lens? I'm guessing with these cameras, you gotta know your DOF scale pretty good. What is your favorite color? Why does my jaw sometimes click when I chew my food? Who do you think will win the Stanley Cup? Thanks in advance.
