My awaited VW Beetle , shades of Porsche , is denigrated in the press for being less than a Golf . But it's a coupe at a sensible price for me .
It was the same with the Leica Digilux 3 , also considered to otherwise , let alone the price . Mine was one year old , probably swapped for a proper high end Nikon/Canon . A second PanasonicL1 body was just £250 plus a cheap 4/3rds Olympus zoom . I would not part with them , using one on a trip to Malaysia .
Recently I bought a Pentax K-1S which lacks a left hand grip , but I tend to cradle a camera with left hand anyway . Another failure for Pentax , but I like the style and solidity .
I guess I don't do conventional !!
Have you ever gone for style over the ultimate capability of an item ?
Dee's ruptively Gender indee'terminate . Autistic Glitch - cameras help contain and focus an out of phase world . Contax / Kiev surround and ground me in chaos . I may even take a photo or two with my several Digi-boxes . OOPs I stated Female , which was weird . I am actually XY , but my head does not recognise that 'frequency' so forgive me if I don't change it . Love puns - Miss-aligned etc LOL
