Thank you for posting these two camera.

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.
