Re: "The aps-c myth"

If you're carrying around an aps-c DSLR with lenses, you're not really seeing much of a size advantage, and if you buy aps-c-only lenses to try to eke out a little bit of a size bonus - you lock yourself out of an upgrade path you might want later. Doesn't sound like a good deal to me.

I have a small bag next to me right now with a K-30 and a couple of DA Limited primes in the bag. It's a small and easy to carry kit, and I like the size of the camera - I don't need it to be smaller and more fiddly. This camera and lens combo is very capable, and doesn't need an "upgrade path" to make excellent images for the next several years. So yeah, I think it's a perfectly good deal.
