Mikedigi's current gear

Olympus Stylus 1s
Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ300
Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ8
Small, light and very clever - what I had hoped the FZ8 would evolve into! I hate the OM1 boxy retro styling and the inadequate grip, but it does perform.
Not so much a camera, more a way of life. Does it all, great build quality, what else do I need?
Bought cheaply on Ebay in 2021 to recapture my FZ8 years!! Silver - reminds me of a 1950s Vespa Scooter.
Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS7 (Lumix DMC-TZ10)
My only "belt" or "large pocket" camera.

With 18-105mm kit lens - very nice. But big enough to spend too much time in the cupboard.
I enjoyed this with 2 kit lenses. but went back to FZs..
Sony Alpha DSLR-A200

Only had it 5 days, inadequate grip and other irritations, went back gratefully to FZ330.
