All these AF cameras spoilt the joy I had in image creation, but they did help me re-discover the need to create images. The Leica Monochrom brings me back to the days in university of really shooting. I tend to use an Orange filter to improve my DNG to be less 'flat'. Then slightly adjusting the curve.
Rangefinder shooting is fairly new to me, but I found it's so much less of a barrier to capture people as they are. They are not really perceived as a 'proper' camera, even though they are, Henri Cartier Bresson knew that, didn't he? It's easier shooting.
