There’s something about having a real camera around with you all the time. For the longest time I’d been with the big SLRs and carrying one of those around is a bit of a commitment from a size and weight perspective.
The Leica with a few lenses has changed things for me so much. With the pack that I have, the Tenba (which I did a quick review of), I now have it with me at work all the time. Do I pull it out every day? No. But when I go for a lunch walk it comes along in case the moment strikes.
It’s just such a nice feeling. I was out for a walk with Lita today — crossing Aurora on a bridge. I had the camera.
