I just looked up Leica and found a Leica 60 priced at 12 grand. Virtually no controls and no way of viewing the image you are taking.
Maybe we should reuse the Kodak forum for Leica Coolaid drinkers.
I just had to add this quote from a reviewer:
this camera is for the master of the streets. And in the one hour that I had with the camera, I’ve never been captivated by a single digital image taking device in my career yet.
My first 35mm camera was a Kodak Pony 135-B, made in the 1950-1953 era. Scale focusing (set estimated distance by rotating lens front cell to footage number markers), manual, hand-cocked shutter (accidental double exposures galore! woo-hoo! NOT!), knob wind and knob rewind, collapsible, 51mm f/4.5 Kodak Anaston lens (uggg....verrrry average), leaf shutter with speeds of B, 25,50,100,200. Very spartan. Never was a very good picture-taker, really. Lens was not as good as the Argus C-3 I had subsequently.
