As a former 4X5 shooter, I am finding that I miss the involvement with the "process" with respect to my Leica S2 and have been seriously considering relieving myself of the Leica, heretical thought though that may be, in favor of a technical camera, the absence of a dark cloth and loupe not withstanding. Given that I have no close photographic friends to chat with I worry that I may well end up much as did Aesop's dog and his reflection and have come here in hope of some rational and helpful insight.
Although the S2 reliably produces beautiful, high quality images, it often feels like little more than a snap shot camera from a users perspective; clearly the ultimate goal is to produce the best images possible, but as an amateur the experience has value as well. My critique is not of the S2 but more so of myself and my obsolescent cravings.
I wonder if I am alone on this or if others have had similar misgivings. I am primarily a landscape and occasional architectural photographer and have a more than adequate Canon system for when I wish to work fast.
It would be helpful to hear if anyone has any thoughts to share on this topic before I make a move that I may well regret, dropping my bone as it were..humm,perhaps that may be a bit more Freudian than what I had in mind
