They seem to have all the making of a product that people just cant get enough of once they try it! These evil, horrible threads got me reading up about them... and remembering that every time I see one I wonder how a camera that small can be that capable... and then there are the quirks...like the rangefinder-like shutter dial around the base of the lens... then there is the viewfinder... then there is the superb meter capability...

OK - enough! No more! I dont need one. Someone tell me they're horrible!

Anyway, thats the little things that get me (an outsider) thinking about it...
