Dinosaur musings

I just finished reading my G3 manual, all 207 pages of it ! As I was doing so, it occurred to me that cameras are now being designed more for software addicts than photographers. The basic justification for many of the mind boggling array of menu features appears to be the fact that they can be included, not that they are really needed or that most owners will ever use them. What ever happened to KISS ( keep it simple stupid ) ? I loved my Leica CL. Set the ISO, speed, aperture,focus and shoot. I don't think I will ever take any better pictures with my G3 than I did with my CL. I'd love to see a micro four-thirds version of the CL. Keep it simple enough and you won't even need a display. Am I alone ?
