For 6000 USD I could hire someone to take pictures for me for a few weeks.

MisterTolley: But by being so deliberately unobtrusive, doesn't that make it obviously a Leica? And therefore attract attention...

I'd still be nervous about taking it out on the streets near me without a bodyguard...

May just be me and a lesser camera model, but I can only get this to work with manual focus on my d5300, and you need to get the settings correct before connecting up - once up and running nothing on the camera seems adjustable - apart from manual focus.

Not very much difference at all. And to my eye the cheaper one just a tad brighter and more contrasty - especially 1 & 2. Actually preferred the cheap lens in 3 out of 4 cases.

Proper two screen application so you can edit in one window on one screen and have the browser on a second monitor - like you can on a mac - would be good.
And layers don't work in b & w - that'd be handy

Instamatic. My dad was a bus conductor and found one. No one claimed it and he gave it to me. Had light leaks after my sister threw it downstairs. At Uni got a Zorki 4K Russian rangefinder which came with a book "Discover Rewarding Photography" - still have it. Then the game changer to serious photo stuff was a Pentax SP2 - still have that as well, after nearly 40 years, and the shutter still works smoothly with a whisper once described as sounding like the sigh of a contented woman! The SMC Takumar works great today with an adapter on Fuji XT3

MisterTolley: In these days of dual card slots - why don't manufacturers sell readers that have two slots for the same card format?

On XT3 I have video on one, stills on another, or JPG on one and Raw on the other, depending on the shoot.
