1. Of course, I didn't mean the extremities like Holga. Sharpness is only good for the Sigma Foveon 46 MP matrix, because a sharper lens will let it resolve even more detail. Since I shoot film, sharpness is a whole lot less of an issue then color rendition, for example.
2. No, no. I am an "attacker". I would "attack" with any "weapon", if I do not want to lose the moment.
3. Of course, when you are making something, building it from a row metal bar or sheet, better instruments mean better work, but even this statement CAN be challenged by an artful maker. Why should photography make much difference? I once had got a lens I was dreaming about for a long time, but it turned out, the lens was "unlucky" for me. All pictures I made with it were "flat". They looked like they were not mine. I felt I didn't want it, nohow. I sold the lens twice cheaper, and the luck returned. Now I am very careful. I don't remember, where I read this prasey: "It may be puir, but I canna drink it."
