What would Cartier-Bresson and Doisneau shoot with today?

You guessed it: a good point & shoot.

No, more likely Leica M9, as Salgado and many others do. If you had ever tried a Leica M, you'd know how easy is to shoot street and documentary with them.

I shoot street, from Leica M3 to a dslr, 35+ years. I have a compact, never worked for that, focus takes forever and has no manual alternative. Recently, the Nikon V1 has shown some potential, but IQ is not enough for some applications. But for street, well, about enough.
