I would describe myself as a photographer whom enjoys creating images using the tried and tested rules of composition (most boring to some), occasionally sneaking in the odd candid when amused to do so. I have never had any urge to use filters or any other gadjet/gizmo to alter the scene, I merely TRY to capture a compositionally good photograph of the moment for my own reflection. For many years I used an OM 1 with a couple of lenses - 28mm F2.8 & 50mm F1.8. However early in 2007 I thought, albeit wrongly, it maybe time to progress to an autofocus film SLR and so after a little research I bought an EOS 1V and 28-70mm F2.8 lens. Now, without a shadow of any doubt, I noticed a distinct improvement in sharpness over those old Zuiko lenses. Sadly, I soon found the sheer bulk of an autofocus SLR coupled with a biggish zoom a real problem. I suddenly became distinctly self conscious and moreover the confidence to shoot the odd candid rapidly ceased. Using the Canon made me realise I had a real relish for the mechanical/manual camera and after an eleven month period with the EOS 1V, I have sold it along with the lens. Presently I am cameraless, but I am clear in my own mind I do not wish to return to an Olympus system and so having provided you all a little background, my question is: Do I buy a Leica Rangefinder (I could afford an MP with one lens for the moment!) or a Nikon system with three modern AIS lenses maybe a 20mm 35mm and 55mm micro?
