someone asked me the dreaded recommend-a-camera question
and I responded with leading questions like "would you like weatherproofing". But it turned out what they wanted was something substantially smaller than a Rebel, so I suggested an OM-D or a Pen. They thanked me for turning them on to Micro Four Thirds and it sounds like they'll probably get a pen-sized Panasonic.
