It is the same as drawing tools. I'm particularly attached to pentel fine
MF-50 pens for my drawing, and Pentel has decided to replace thes with a
NMF-50 model which inherites the ink but not the very fine form. I cannot
bring myself to draw with the new one and have scored all available ones to
have a little stock, which is dwindling faster than wanted. I know the new
one has te same ink and same point, but the experience is NOT the same...
The OM-aesthetics are very important to me for the same reason. I can keep
on looking at these tools, just as I love an old coathanger in our corridor.
I do not have the same experience with digital cameras yet.
