Damn 300D! Damn R-D1!
I love the ease of use of digital media, the fact I don't have to scan any negatives, and don't have to wait for the developed negatives to return. But the 300D is a devil to handle. Why do I have to push a button AND turn a wheel to change a setting? This should be done much more easily, like on a rangefinder. I'm almost tempted to bring along my handheld light meter and to use those settings in the Eos M-mode. Too bad that won't solve the pre-focussing problem; I want to be able to focus by myself AND be able to see on the lens what distance I set. This is just not possible on the EF lenses.
I will have to start saving for an R-D1, and sell off some of my other cameras. The Noblex should bring in some money but I'm not yet ready mentally to sell that one. The rest won't bring in enough; only some tens of dollars each for the FEDs and Zorkis. I will have to be reeeeeally nice to Sumiya for the next few years. :P
