Camera size over five decades plus
7

On the right the final iteration of the classic Pentax Spotmatic.  Average size for the time, mid 1970s, design goes back to 1964.  The Olympus OM1 was smaller and hailed as a breakthrough.  Nikons were a deal bigger, most of the rest closer to Pentax.  50mm f1.8 lens.  On the left the incomparably better X-T2.  Which a lot of people say is a bit small, certainly a lot smaller than modern cameras that attract little comment for being big.  35mm f1.4 lens so broadly equivalent.  A comparison I've been meaning to make for a while, and just for interest.  If there is a point it is how we forget and how fussy some snappers are when looking for a bigger camera, a grip and so on.  You can see why I like Fuji of course.
