Poor Henri -- forced to use an eye level cam

For architecture and in general telezoom shots it is v. handy to have a built in EVF, but for close range, people shooting it's a no no, if you want to shoot stealthily.

As soon as you bring the camera to your eye, people feel targeted.

Yeah, old Henri found that -- that's why he couldn’t take a decent street picture with his OVF Leica.

Frustrated by the lack of tilting LCD screens, he switched to painting instead.

Dragging the tongue out of the cheek with great difficulty, seriously consider the silver finish cam and lenses. The new black. People see you taking pix and they simply disregard it or react positively in most cases. Try taking the same pix with a black camera and they are more likely to react negatively. My experience, and one reason why I now use silver cams instead of the black cams I used for decades.

Cheers, geoff
