    Is it just me, or has this camera really taken on a cult following? It reminds me of my Saab, and Saab owners in particular. Solidly built, not much to look at, but man, you just love it to death. Even without the Leica lens (which is first rate) I can't imagine not getting another one of these, in spite of it's quirkiness.

    Yes, it really does have a cult following. And fortunately is way less costly to maintain than the Saabs my wife has owned.

    Amen to that, brother. A kick to drive though, both the camera and the car.

    I think if you are an older person like me, you remember using a rangefinder camera back in the late 50's. But their is something about this camera that draws you to it. Best of all it takes great pictures.

    Since I'm in a contrary mood today I have both an L1 and an E330. I love the looks of the L1 and the way it handles, but I have to say the odd-duck looking 330 is a better camera.Which seems strange even to me as I like the newer Panasonics over their rough Olympus equivalents. Just an opinion.

    ooooHHH CONTROVERSIAL! the 330 had better live view IIRC, the 300 was more like the L1.

    There you go .. even an opinion can be wrong
    (maybe you are right thought).

    So glad the L-1 has focus confirm what gave me a sensible feature to choose for the L-1. But it is the "dynamic" B/W ISO 400 JPGs keep me coming back to the L-1 there usually so good.

    But I would certainly not mind to have a E-330 added to the collection.

    You right about the E-330 it is a great camera, sold mine plus two lens,
    also sold my E-510 with one lens so that i was able to pay for the E-30.

    The main thing I like about the L1 is as Kuifje states, we've no need of focus confirm daisies to try and get some idea of focus when using legacy lenses. I use Leica R lenses, Nikon lenses and of course my Olympus OM lenses, it makes it a great camera for this use.
