This addiction of mine began a few years ago and continues into today; it helped spur a movement. Remember a few years ago how Fujifilm came onto the scene with cameras that had retro aesthetics, looked gorgeous and actually functioned well while doing it nowhere as expensive as Leica? Then Olympus hopped on board.
Then Sony, and the train kept taking off. It got its fundamental start with film cameras and that whole movement. The idea of using a proper dial of some sort and retro-grade ergonomics has continued to enamor photographers everywhere--but no matter what camera manufacturers have done, I think that I can make a very valid argument that they've all come very close and done a fantastic job. However nothing fits into your hand or functions just right like some sort of small film camera. . thephoblographer.com
