Re: Portability v Quality are we obsessed by size?

Without going into too many details... the simple fact for me(and many others) was that I didn't want to lug around my DSLR. I ended up never using it unless it was work or photo-shoot related. I now take my X-E1 + 35mm 95% of everywhere I go. A good bag makes all the difference too; my $90 Domke was worth every penny.

I have found that in actual use I get more keepers with my X-E1. With the X-Trans sensor and incredibly accurate CDAF (I'd rather more shots in perfect focus than faster autofocus with shots slightly off) combined with the fast and sharp 35mm f/1.4 I don't miss my DSLR one bit.

A decent camera that is with me always, is much better than precision tool that I leave at home.
