Others have responded well to these misunderstandings.  IMHO the R series, the R8 in particular, offers the advantage of the optics, i.e., the stuff that actually puts the image on the film, and the viewfinder, which makes it easy to see the image I want to put on film.  It lacks the complex user interface of other cameras.
