let loose my consumer desires

If the camera faeries were to visit me, this is the camera I would like them to bring me. A Leica, and not just any, but a new digital SLR. Of course at $5500 US for the body and then about $1500 starting for each lense, this isn't going to happen. I just don't know those kinds of faeries.

This is however much more realistic. So much so that instead of waiting for faeries, I am actually setting aside money. My little digital just doesn't seem to be cutting it for my work and my lovely vintage Pentax SLR isn't digital. Enter the best of both worlds. For $600 I can buy this digital Pentax body and all of the lenses for my original Pentax (I have about 10, thanks Dad!), will fit. Who needs faeries.
