Neil, Welcome to APUG. Were you printing bw or color at 80s. Leica is the best for either of it. But there is more options cheaper and even higher quality. Large format! There is a large format forum at the web and just find it and look to the images. And there is alternative processes section at APUG and there. You shot less , think more when calculating the exposure and development and printing variables before shutter.
And there are excellent folders , more selection of films , easy to carry , no thinking about loss or damage of the camera. Look for zeiss ikon folders. They are around 20 dollars to 300 dollars range and even the cheapest is wonderful.
There was a guy who went to abroad and forget to remove his Leica cap and loses all the images.
