    Not as a main camera, no. But maybe as an experimental/playful camera.

    Film Compact camera from the film days.

    I kinda feel like I have a main digital camera that will always remain my main camera. So if I have a compact film camera, it would be my ... 'playful' camera for lack of a better word. It'll be something I'd use for a sporadic shot here and there. If the lens isn't as sharp as it should be...

    Hmm... this is very interesting too.. and I've also a tiny bit surprised no camera company took him up on this offer, but also cynically not surprised no one took him up on the offer. Schrodinger's offer I guess.

    When I started this topic, I was talking about the fully automated compact cameras from the 80s like my cheapo Kodak compact shown in my photo. But we fell hard into the premium $1000 manual-focusing rangefinder category pretty damn fast. *insert smiley face emoticon here*

    That looks beautiful too. I know I said "compact" but I don't really care about size. But is it really a fully automated fixed lens camera?

    Film Compact camera from the film days.

    I just looked up the Konica C35 and noticed that it does a decent f/2.8 but there's only three shutter speeds, the max being 1/250. This means during a sunny day I probably can't use the lens wide open unless I buy exceptionally slow film speed. The cheap Kodak film I buy from the dept store...

    Yes I looked them up and they're in the AUD$1000-$1500 range here. Which means they're not cheap enough for me to impulse-buy just to have a play. I know the humongous hype around the Contax compacts in recent years since one of the Kardashians was seen to use one. But I think it was also...

    The recent Voigtlander lenses are quite exceptional. Not that I've ever had an opportunity to use a Leica lens so I may not know what I'm talking about. Considering Leica's reputation for their lenses, maybe you do need to get yours overhauled, I don't know. You know what, maybe if I ever...

    Niiiice on both the Leica and Konica, I just looked them up. I've never really been heavily tempted by most full frame film cameras because I'm very happy with my 35mm digital cameras. However, a film compact with fast lens would be a different experience, I might be tempted with something...

    Also, my main lens that lives semi-permanently on my camera for the past few years is the Voigtlander 50mm f/1.2. I bought it for approx AUD$1200 when it was first released. I'd never sell this one either. It is an exceptionally fine lens. If I ever bought my dream lens, the Summilux 50mm...

    This is not my area of expertise but was there ever a compact film camera with a lens that has an f/stop larger than f/2.8? They mostly seem to be f/5.6 or even smaller. I know the Ricoh GR compacts were f/2.8 and they were a premium compact back then. Is that as large as it gets?

    TL2 vs X100V

    When I said earlier that I'd choose the TL2, I meant strictly based on the technical functionality after comparing those two photos above. But in reality, I'd choose the X100V every single time because of its beautifully vintage stylings. And it also does photos adequately. That's the camera...

    I'd probably have trouble adjusting to the 40mm. I still have trouble adjusting to the Hasselblad Xpan. It's obviously a longer camera than the Leica M. I kept bringing the Xpan up to my eye to take a shot and ask myself "why is it so dark", and then I'd realise I had to shift the camera...

    Do people remember those Sigma DP compacts with the foveon sensors? They kinda disappeared into the background after they evolved into the weirdest looking contraptions. I had a bit of GAS for them when they were a thing. I still kinda do have a thing for them.

    That would be my issue - no framelines for the 40mm. The weird thing is - I reckon I'd be fine guesstimating a 16mm or a 21mm lens on the Leica, without using an external viewfinder for the framelines. But the 40mm is too close to the 50mm, I'd probably expect to see a 50mm photo but would be...

    Do you mean the 50mm is your go-to lens at one end, while at the other end you're more likely to be using the 28mm? Therefore the 35mm is your neither here nor there lens?
