I am tempted to try out my Leica M lenses on a digital body. The new M8 is out of the question: I am simply not willing to spend GBP 3500 USD 5500 or whatever in that region for a digital camera, not yet anyway, it is just not my need/desire/budget, however good that camera may turn out to be. So my other cheaper option/alternative is the Epson RD-1s. I have seen some pics taken with it and I kind of like them. I just wonder: has the RD-1 also got a "crop factor" and if so what is it? Anybody here who has got one and wishes to share his/her thoughts on the camera pros and vs? What do you like most and what less? Too much plastic...is it a sturdy rugged camera or just too weak compared to an M body? What's the performance of the M lenses "digitally"? What's its level of compability with the Mac OS X operating system when it comes to downloading the pictures onto the computer? Does it need any additional software or is it going to be, as I am used with all Apple software and hardware, a simple "plug in and play" operation? And finally, what's a good price in your opinion to pay for an RD-1s brand new and what are they going for if are they to be found used? Many thanks in advance, any advice will be much appreciated...!
