I recently decided I needed a smaller "take it with me at all times" camera as
wasn't using my SLR enough and bought an old Minolta CLE rangefinger. Nice
lens (with the option of using other Leica or new Voigtlander lenses as well),
light - and great fun to use. I'm sure there is already digital kit that can
get close to
the quality but not without much more bulk - or without making a bigger dent in
bank balance (even allowing for the cost of a scanner).
And a lot of classic camera gear holds its value more than consumer grade
Don't get me wrong, I like new toys as much as anyone else and have been eyeing
each generation of digicams that come out but nothing yet has the right mix of
compactness, quality and value to mak me bite.
