Do we really need all that gear? Or is this the perfect camera?
14

I often travel with an EM5 and a selection of lenses, usually the 3 2.8 zooms. I have to take a camera bag or rucksack to carry my kit.

I was in Trento (Italy) for work and after my work was finished I wanted to see a building by Renzo Piano where I did some structural engineering on some secondary structures.

I slipped my LX100 into my jacket pocket and headed to MUSE through the pouring rain.

Below are the results. Strangely I did not feel restricted by having just this little camera with its standard zoom. In fact it was quite liberating to have so little gear. I do not think I missed any shots either.

I find myself carrying just this camera more and more. Even M43 is starting to feel big and bulky.

Of course there are times I need my ILC stuff to get the pictures I want.
