I was in a large, maybe the largest, camera store in Phoenix. One salesman kept saying to me and others, "Why would you buy new stuff now? In ten years it's all gonna be digital!" This in '86! I just said to him defensively, "Why should I wait ten years? I can get a lot of use out of a camera in ten years!" After a couple of times of this I figured screw it, why should I give money to someone who doesn't want to sell me what I want? Just bizarre. I mean, if he'd said autofocus, it at least would not have been so off-the-wall.
I ended up buying another F2 in Tucson for $400 and being done with it. Though I did drool over the LX, and now I have one. But I wish I'd never sold those F2's. Both had plain prisms, and were just so nice.
