Simplicity doesn't necessarily cost more than complexity - a IIIc can be had cheaply, along with an I-61 and some Jupiters.. or a film CL or manual Nikon or OM or whatever, and some primes. I enjoy simplicity too, and the mind exercises it requires. Nice to keep the brain cells active! However I think some digital advancements are worth the money, like Sony's eye-detect AF, which by all accounts is a game-changer. I see that as a more attractive proposition than a digital Leica for social and street photography.
just give me good light and a roll of film
