OK, the reason I stated 'MP' was for exactly that reason, Xmas: the ultimate camera for purists (like me), but with considerably more disposable income than, again, me.
I will admit that there is something magical about the mechanics which derive power from, essentially, nineteenth century technology, a clock spring, and freedom from battery power (except meter) is comforting to some. But, to 250swb and others: there really are very affluent people who would more than hesitate before buying an MP because, truly, no better pictures are delivered there as opposed to, let's face it squarely, from a K1000 or SRT. Such people seek value in life and, to be truthful, that is how I was brought up, judging value before sexiness.
In other words, not all people with money use that money for the misguided purpose of enhancing an ephemeral social status. - David Lyga
