I know exactly what you feel

I bought a 9000 for some small two-figure sum, back when I was first getting into the mount eight years ago. After the point where I'd lost all interest in shooting 35mm film. That's too bad, because it's a very appealing camera: nice size, great viewfinder, and a control set that's unique without being weird and unintuitive. I don't think I'd ever handled a 9000 before, only the ubiquitous 7000. That I found as user-friendly as a first-generation digital watch. Four identical, symmetrical buttons on top, distinguishable only by reading the label or remembering the location? That was a bad idea then, and they remain one of the few bad ideas in my a850.

If only I had encountered a 9000 earlier, it might have won me to the brand.
