I think the appeal is that it looks cool, but I don't miss these "retro" controls one bit. Most people use aperture priority and Auto ISO, so that eliminates 2 awesome dials (shutter speed and ISO). How about the exposure compensation dial? Is it easier to control comp using your index finger or by contorting your hand to adjust the dial? Yes, my Contax is a sexy beast, but as far as ergonomics, it's terrible.

Having said that, if all I did was shoot landscapes or something as deliberate, my opinion my differ.
