Most DSLRs are pretty small, so don't play the "compact" card. Even an EP series camera wont fit into a coat pocket because it has a big-*ss lens on it!

I get such a laugh out of the people with their compact sized cameras (as opposed to what they call big, bulky, oversized etc. DSLR's) who then post pictures of their little cameras with enormous lenses hanging off the front, topped off by a lens hood that looks like a toilet plunger.

Looks like a Munchkin who took an overdose of Viagra.

I had seen folks during some of my hikes with a 'compact' camera with a 80-200mm size lens attached to it mounted on a big tripod really to support the lens...

Kinda hilarious ..

It really is. And it does seem to me that the more the user (on some of these forums) insists that a DSLR is 'too big', the more likely they are to trot out an absurdly large lens / toilet plunger combo to show us their pride and joy. As a bonus there may be a hinged add-on EVF, taking up the hot shoe (sorry, no flash...) and the end result is as sexy as one of the Frankenstein monster's shoes.

But it's compact! So much better than a bulky DSLR!
