    I can’t imagine that anybody who would buy this camera would buy a book to learn its finer points.

      It’s a pretty awesome camera with or without dot, while the design of Leica’s version is slightly more appealing imho, and you get Lightroom included which is not nothing. Personally i’m saving every buck i can, but i can see why somebody wouldn’t mind overpaying a little for something a bit different .. and be serious about photography at the same time.

        You’re threading an awfully narrow needle there.

        To be clear, I’m not saying it’s a poor camera.

          I don’t know what that means. It’s easy to judge, but it is what it is and there is little point arguing about it. People have their reasons, and stranger things have happened.

      I’d love to buy the camera, and I’d definitely buy the book. Good bedtime reading, absent a manual.
