    Not much of an April Fool's joke IMO, as there are already manual
    focus digital cameras on the market.

    Ah, yes! The "hands-on" approach. ;-)

    If the original post is a joke, it's a very poor one. To qualify as a joke
    it would have to be something obviously unbelievable. Seagull is a valid
    company and although a manual focus dslr may not be for everyone, if the
    price were right there could well be a market. To have to critically examine
    the supplied photo is asking too much.
    The main downside to such a purchase would be vulnerability to Asian bird
    flu' virus.

    dammit!!!

    I so wanted this to be true. I know many of you would purchase a manual
    SLR if it took old glass irrespective if it's Nikkor or Pentax K or
    whatever...

    I once owned a Seagull TLR, the lens was excellent the results superb.
    Alas the film transport gave up, crunchy crunch one day.
    I was quite sad.
    It had a nice bright screen as well.
