Once upon a time, I had a huge Canon DSLR system. Heavy, a couple of large camera bags, a real obstacle to joy when lugging it all with me. Kind of sucks the life out of you when you are burdened with too much crap. Even one body with a small zoon was a bit much when the primary reason for a little trip was not a photo job. Even my 50mm 1.2L on a full-size body was four times the size of a similar 35mm film camera. I needed something fun but capable of making pictures I actually cared about here and there.
