I've been lusting for a new camera, but only now have I an inkling what I truly want.

This thread is old news and hopefully that's what it'll remain. (It's not worth reading now:  I simply revealed myself to be a bizarro gearhead with a fetish for over-the-top construction quality.)

Surprisingly, not only did the great majority of you not rip me a new one, most of you simply told me to take two aspirin and buy a Leica in the morning.  I did explain that I just don't have the necessary 'red dot' mentality, but what I haven't had a chance to say is just how much I appreciate the 'kid gloves' treatment that I had from nearly all of you.   Perhaps you were all so apprehensive about my obvious mental fragility that you thought it wouldn't withstand any real abuse ...

You know, for years I'd had warnings about you DPR people.  All I can conclude is that you must have been collectively sharpening your canines on the particular evening of my post.  But whatever the real reason for your mercy, I do feel much appreciative of your forbearance.


(I'm still crazy.  M)
