Good for you!
I dont question for a moment, that the Variants are quality cameras! They are Gandolfi's, after all...

BUT - as said before, I like the craftmanship behind the "old" ones - a (used to be) friend of mine had a Variant: that was surprisingly heavy, and frankly, I don't really like the design...

Apart from this; I have limited funds.. I can't have all.....
