Nah, I don't think you'll start a negative comments war. It's a great camera, no getting around that. I know I want to add one to my kit...

I'm surprised they didn't do something like the SWA or WA, since I think they may be more aesthetically pleasing......

Alpa's are cool, but I think it was the coolness of the iPhone viewfinder adaptor that got them all excited - bet they haven't even taken a picture with one.

So are they in order? do they really the the only thing in the world cooler than an Alpa camera is a Burberry Trench coat?

You can have the coat, I will have a drink with the girl.

p.s.: I already have a Burberry Trench coat, I can offer her mine.

The order seems to change depending upon your web navigation. I got distracted at the Victoria's Secret entry.  :P

On that page I found this quote: "According to research by the University of Minnesota, the simple act of carrying a Victoria's Secret bag makes women feel sexier."
Perhaps similar things happen to men if they carry an alpa camera with a mf back and an iPhone viewfinder.

Best,

Well, for things to carry that might make one feel sexy: in the 70s it was a heavy leather camera bag with a big, shiny Hasselblad sticker and some smaller Bahamas ones... in the 70s I was enough for me to imagine I was sexy! ;-) The bag still survives, but as for myself, I'm not sure.

From the Top 100 options we've been given, only two, and both Italian: No7, the Riva Iseo which, even as a present, would give me more financial logistical problems than I could cope with; No73, the Alfa 4C which would indeed find a welcome home with me, and I could actually keep it in the mode to which I'm sure it would like to be accustomed!

(Thinking of the Alfa, maybe it's to replace that tiny Fiat gem, the X1/9, which was beautiful but underpowered and made from sardine tins.)

The rest? Fanciful  but not for me.

Found this shot taken some years ago.

Also found that, on putting into the computer some shots I did a couple of days ago, they have been magically changed into jpegs instead of the NEFs that I always shoot. That isn't very nice; I hope it doesn't become a habit. The problem's in camera, because they are identified on the rear screen as jpegs too... how odd; must be the gremlins coming to visit again. Probably have to start chimping, too, just to be sure.

;-(
