Just one person's story

Not anywhere near a pro, just one who loves photography, I had a Nikon D5100 DSLR and three lenses as my last DSLR system. After two or three hours of walking with all of that, my back, hip and knee would talk to me: "You're getting too old for this, man!" I gave the DSLR outfit to my son-in-law (35 yrs. old). I now either carry just a Nikon P7700 (small sensor, nice zoom, articulating LCD, but small sensor) or EOS M with a 22mm prime. Life's good. The results on my monitor after a photo walk or family outing aren't better or worse than before. I'm a lot more comfortable. And frankly, I happen to like that touchscreen! How many others have stories like mine? Apparently the numbers are growing, as a generation in America ages out of lugging bags of gear on our shoulders.
