Thanks you all for your very kind words, yes I have a "special" wife! Love her!
It helped that she's also a passionate photographer (maybe not very technically expert but she has a vision) and when we visited thanks to Raid the Leitz Park in Wetzlar last year we both were very impressed.
A friend ask me about my choice, I mean the camera not the wife
I'll give you some details.
Basically I'm a film photographer beside the M7 I shoot the old Rolleiflex I inherited from my father, I shoot a Nikon FM2T, I shoot different Polaroid cameras. It's ok, I like the experience, the notion to have a limited number of frames available, the waiting time to see the results. It's all ok, but...
Since I have no more a darkroom since years the hybrid workflow is my way to go. Just replicating the darkroom operation, a little more contrast here, some burning there and similar operations, nothing too exoteric!
Now getting old I realized how precious my time is and the scanning time is becoming heavy. I'm also learning to draw and this takes time, you can shoot a bottle in 1/125 of sec but to draw it with pencils it can take two hours!
Moreover my excellent scanner, Nikon 5000 ED is more than 10 years old and I think it's not eternal, soon or later it could fail and difficult to repair.
So I started the research of a digital camera which had not to be computer like, complicated menus, or plenty of buttons. I evaluated various models, various brands but no one was conniving me at 100%, hmmm I'm difficult in my choices! But I like to have a strong relationship with my tools and do not like the idea to buy and sell, when I buy that is!
When I tried the M10 I felt it was very similar in my hand to my M7 and you already know how it went, thanks to my wife!
From the first days I can say it was the correct choice and I can use it in the same way I shoot film: select iso according to the ambient light, use aperture priority or manual depending on situation, single shots, rarely chimping only when the light situation is ...problematic, done...
Of course I'll still use my films camera...
Again thanks to you all for the nice and encouraging words!
PS: for the friends who ask no, my wife has no sisters...and there is no Ferrari in our future...
