Better than I have said it, for sure, Jim. I think people get caught up in
having the latest technology like it will give them better pictures. It
won't. It can contribute if it is used properly, but it depends on how
involved in the process of photography one wants to get. I find my pictures
are easier to get, better, with my Leicas than with my Nikon F5, for the
simple reason that exposure is a breeze. I can, after all these years, pick
the right exposure most of the time fast enough to not have to worry about
it, thus spend time actually working on the important parts - composition,
form, moments. And the way my R8, R4sP and M6 work, they get out of the way
and let me concentrate. No fancy buttons to push to get the right mode,
focusing priority, focusing can be cone on any part of the screen, etc.
