Re: Fancy taking photos with a 90 year old camera

If I was going down the DSLR route I'd ditch the notion of zoom lens and kit-up with fast primes. Know what you're talking about with the D850, having tried one in the showroom.

Personally I like the frame lines of the rangefinder and/or scale focus camera, it's like looking at a framed photograph before you've actually exposed the film or sensor. Most photographers would learn a great deal if they practiced using a scale focus camera, at least remembering to remove the lens cap.
