The OM-1 digital thingymajob would be great. I'm stuck in the dark
ages with my E-M1 Mk2 as I've been spending my camera budget on music
stuff, but it's now my go-everywhere camera. Bigger but wonderful. The
most significant change in package size though is the lenses. I can
kill my back with some lenses or decide to lowprofile it with my m43
lenses. It depends on if I'm flying somewhere or driving. I don't fly
with the big lenses any more.
Funny thing about taking a modular approach to things. With my
cameras, I have big, medium, small. With my lenses, I have big,
medium, small. With my DJ and music gear I have big, medium, small.
With my......oh never mind, that was a dark alley. Anyway, it's great
because it allows me to right-size my choices to whatever the
challenges or application is at the moment.
