Too small is not good either

We have been crying for smaller for a long time now. And we have got it. As pendulums always do, they swing the other way also. I find so many of the new cameras too small. At least for my hands.

Some years ago I wanted small. To carry with me everywhere, in a pocket. I bought a p&s Pentax that I could put in a cigaret leather box. I used it a couple of times, the image quality was not overwhelmingly good.

Now I wonder. How many carry their m4/3 in their pockets? I don't. I either carry it around the neck, from the shoulder or in a small photo bag. For the moment I have the E-PL2. But I would be happier with a larger body, but not DSLR large. I don't use one hand when photographing. I use both, elbows in, camera to the eye. The way I was taught to. I would like a camera in the size of the old Leica CL. Because, what is now important for an old man like me is not so much the size, as the weight. It must be light.
But not too small, please.
