    Satisfaction

    What would it take to satisfy your needs and curiosity? (Camera Wise)...
    At least in the short term...
    Keeping in mind that if you got what you wanted you would have to buy one...

    Re: Satisfaction

    I would like to satisfy my curiosity regarding the rumored 0.95 Nocti and the 1.4 wides.

    Other wise I'm set when it come to Leica stuff.

    Everyone must be entirely satisfied... That's good to hear...
    One must think out of the box...

    Re: Satisfaction

    I'll want to know whether I can afford the next R-camera or whether I'm getting a Nikon D700 instead. Hints along the lines of "You might want to save around $xxxx" will be fine. Thanks for the CD case BTW!

    Re: Satisfaction

    You know James, actually I am pretty well satisfied right where I am at the moment Leica wise. Yea, would be great to finally find out if the collection of R glass in my vault is destined for nothing more than expensive paperweights, but I don't have the cash at the moment to buy any new R body if they released it for sale tomorrow. Bank already turned down the cat and two dogs as collateral, so no loan going to happen either. Actually kind of liberating really, when you get right down to it. No cash, no desire to paw over yet another spec sheet trying to decide what to buy next. Instead, I can just focus my time on making beautiful photographs <Grin>.

    Re: Satisfaction

    Hi Jim:

    I assume you mean Leica-wise?

    On that, I am pretty happy with my M system as is; though I would like faster frame-rates, higher ISO and a wider finder that worked for the 21, only an effective 28 so it could be done. I like the added support for SDHC and improved (quieter) shutter, but it's not likely I will be paying the piper to upgrade my current M8-1's or buying any M8-2's --- the cost of entry is too heavy for the gain .

    Cheers,
    Jack

    Better quality at higher ASA. And an expansion of the finder to accommodate the 21( no external finder). DR

    Re: Satisfaction

    A DMR successor with true R mount, i.e. a new DSLR that takes R lenses without the need of an adapter.
    And of course - as Doug the Wildlightphoto Herr uses to remind us and Leica about - with a viewfinder of SL quality !
    After all it's the single most important part of a DSLR, because without a fabulous viewfinder the camera only works well in auto everything mode.
    This camera is the only thing I really wish for in 2009

    Re: Satisfaction

    There is no such thing as satisfied with any system. There are a lot of compromises and that is just something you learn to deal with. Pick your poison
    Photography is all about experimentation and without it you will never learn art.
