    another elitist lomo camera. all this talk of encouraging analogue photography and you release a 250 pound camera specially if it has the reliability of the lca *unike*

    If you use the square format do you end up with the same gaps in the film as you do in the diana mini?

    Nice :) Like a Diana Mini which has a wide angle lens included. I'll get one as soon as possible, but for now I'll just stay with my made in USSR LC-A :)

    Dear Lomography.
    I fully understand how the price of LC-W has been hitting over the atmosphere.
    17mm lens with no distortion? HOW CAN IT BE POSSIBLE!
    Only 2 focus points? THAT'S INSANE! Still, Lomo? WOW.
    I was just impressed how you guys can make cameras. LC-W is perfect camera I think.

    But, Even though I know it's the best film compact camera in the market, I can't really buy it.
    and THAT'S DRIVING ME CRAZY! How can you just to not buy this lovely machine?
    Only reason to me and everybody else would probably be its price.
    with price of 349 euros, I can buy full-featuring DSLR kit which is very versatile.
    and I can buy iPad if I add little money, and I can buy 120 rolls of Kodak 200/36!
    (even though if i had that kind of money i would buy LC-W :D and never go to DSLR range nor iPad.)

    Please, Please make little brother of LC-W to make him not lonely.
    You can change lens to plastic lens, and make it half-frame only, and do whatever you want,.
    But one thing is that 'Please make it LOMO'. Intense colors, Wild Vignetting,
    I'm pretty sure that there would be a lot of demand for LC-W and little LC-W Mini.

    I'm sure that it will not happen, But I thought I would feel better after writing this.
    Dear Santa..

    $400?! I could buy a used large format camera for that price...

    I second Pattur23's comment. The price tag is ridiculous for a 35mm camera.
