Why would anyone want that? Lets throw away 60 years of progress. Why not just buy an old film SLR and develop in the darkroom? Which, if you truly want the old-time experience, would be the only ethical way to go.

By the way, I've been shooting for about 50 years now . . . and I don't get this yearning for the past.

professional cynic and contrarian: don't take it personally

It's not about yearning for the past...its about an elegant approach to current tech.  Nobody is saying to go back to the old days of low quality high iso exposures, and developing in the dark room (but man I do miss that)...it's more about taking away the 600 computer features in the camera and having a nice weekend camera that just takes pictures...and nothing else.  Leica is the only one that is at least coming close...but they charge WAY too much for their gear.  If Fuji offered a full frame XT-1 that would be a really nice step forward in the right direction.
