Thinking really seems to get in the way of shooting. The cooler the gear I own the less I shoot. And the cooler the gear I own the less I like what I shoot. There's a lot to be said for the primitive approach to any art. The more direct and uninflected the connection the more visceral it is to your intended audience. Maybe that's the appeal of smaller, less complex systems. Fewer choices means more direct interaction with the art itself.
