re: it is ALL about the lack of functionality, monies are...

...secondary - after all a camera like this should last for abt. 3-4 yrs,
which makes it not too expensive at all (approx. 60-65 bucks a month);
however:

  • no eye-level VF;

  • fixed LCD only;

  • cumbersome to use add-on VFs, which confer no additional stability of shooting when pressed to one's brow;

all this reduced a potential functionality to shooting at arms length,
hardly a good mode to capture true candids on streets in HCB's
manner

I'm sure if you have enough money, you won't buy it anyway.

indeed, why to pay for a toy gimmick? (quite heavy too at 0.5 kilo),
