This type of camera is for people who really want high quality images, but also want some choices limited. You become the master of 35mm. You get to know the camera and lens very well, and know exactly how to position yourself for the shot. To me, it looks very appealing.

Yes, but after 30 minutes, you need to find something else to learn

Kidding ... but one FL is pretty limiting unless you have a specific purpose and style in mind.

It's only limiting if you believe it's limiting.

Well, I would not want to go birding with this camera. But even that falls within your statement. A real creative person could rig the camera to snap remotely, after it has been planted near a nest!

Hah, exactly that's the spirit. And think of the angle it would give, actually showing the little chicks view of the big wide world from the nest itself, just stunning. Now that's photography.
