This is part of the reason I so enjoy a good old Pentax Spotmatic. When I get a really good 16x20 from it, it feels better, because I feel like I applied a lot more skill to get there.
I'm not sure if I follow you here Thomas. The level of precision in a Spotmatic and a M2 should be the same, if not something is wrong with the camera. Apart from the obvious difference in cost and the rangefinder/SLR difference I can't see why it would require more skill with a Spotmatic. Or perhaps it it just the feeling?
