here's the basics. i tend to prefer shooting interesting people on the streets, usually strangers. i am getting more and more into reflections, shooting through glass, light and shadows, etc. i only have small sensors and the DP1 in my arsenal. when asking on a thread about the D300, everyone decided a Rangefinder would be more suited to my style and recommended the M8.
i can't afford the M8 right now... i was at my camera store yesterday and he's got a mint condition RD-1 for Ç1350 with the newest software. i can't really afford that either right now, but i loved the look and feel of it very much. completely different than my compacts (and i suspect i would shoot very differently with it as well), but very satisfying.
i know Photokina is around the corner and i was really waiting until after to see what may be offered up. it does not seem that anyone's really running to produce a new Rangefinder within my price range, however. (i think i have to concur that a Rangefinder is perfect for me.)
is the 6mp resolution going to be limiting? or does that make the grain/noise even more pleasing? will Epson still support it if something goes wrong? do people still use and love this camera? (btw, i will shoot RAW and tend to be more into b/w.) where does it shine in your opinion?
i have a ton more questions, but really want user opinions, experiences, samples, and the like.
thank you in advance!
