    i now own perhaps 15 or so camera systems. When I returned to film photography it was with a 3rd hand XGM. Much-much different than my old P&S Kodak's of the '50's &'60's. To me learning any skill involves a lot of study, practice, and thought. One of the early readings was of Mike Johnson. His suggestion was to purchase a Leica, any Leica, and use it exclusively for one year , I should have listened. Now I have a lot of good to pretty good cameras but use only a few . saving up for the best now makes a lot of since now . An old song stated "once you've had the best, it's hard to settle for anything less- -once you've had the best". I get it. So now I'm finally saving up for my Leica. .. ... could a' been using it and still had a pile of cash. Go figure. .. ...

    Yes, in my many travels I've seen Buddhist monks out begging with their alms bowls, the bowls were very utilitarian and seemed to work fine. I did not ask if their bowl manufacturer made cameras too but if they did I doubt it would be one I'd enjoy using even if it got the job done adequately.
