Not sure if this is the right place for this. I am asking on Nikonians because I get a lot of good info here. I currently shoot with a d7000, I started my phtography hobby about 2 years ago with the d90 but REALLY got ino it a year ago. Last year I saw my first Leica and I thought it was beautiful. It was a m9 and way too expensive for me at this point since I'm still trying to build my Nikon kit.

My question is, is there any benefit to shooting film? Will it help me shoot digital better? I'm thinking of the Leica M3 since it is more affordable, it's something I can start a collection with and at the same time I could dabble in film every once in awhile. Maybe I'm just looking for an excuse to buy a Leica I can afford but I do have a little itching to try film. I'm 42 and my only real memory of using a film camera was a disk camera I got for Christmas as a kid.

Any advice or suggestions are appreciated. Thank you
