Discrete vs DSLR

You get a very different response from people - even from people wo know you - when using a discrete camera. This is what Leica users tell you for more than 40 years now and they are right. No DSLR can really give you the same thing.

While I love my full frame equipment for some aspects I do love my E-M5 for not getting the looks when I approach people. I am talking about a dialogue with the subject and not hidden snaps. The latter can still be best done with a smartphone...

Choose a camera that has a tilting screen if you regularly do this kind of photography. Sometimes it helps a lot not to cover your face with a bulky machine when approaching people.
