But Doug,
As we all know you love and cherish your SL (SL2?) viewfinders. Has
Leica managed to even equal
the clarity and brightness of these ? I don't think so. This means that
Leica has managed to fulfill your needs, but will this be the case in
the future - be it film or digital - I personally doubt it.
I aasume that, particularly for your needs, a camera should be tough,
reliable, as independent as possible from batteries and must have a
viewfinder bright enough and clear enough to allow fine focussing with
long lenses.
I still don't see these criteria anywhere, neither by Canon, Leica,
Fuji, Contax
nor Nikon. Do you see a way ahead?
