I've been on a couple of business trips lately where I had the opportunity to look around in nice cities and take pictures, but I didn't have the opportunity to bring along my D7000 I am crying! It's sometimes too large (and too expensive) to take along. We'll be travelling to Berlin in December and we'll be flying with lots of luggage (we have a small kid...), so no room for the D7000 I am crying! Usually I use my iphone - the picture quality certainly matches any P&S camera, but it does have it's limitations. Enter mirrorless cameras - I don't like them much, because I like a view finder and lots of shortcut buttons (which mirrorless cameras don't have and my D7000 does have). BUT, they're very small smile
I've been looking at the Nikon 1 S1. One of the smallest mirrorless cameras out there. Pro: very small, good image quality, fast autofocus and it's a Nikon. Con: no mode-selection-wheel and no hot-shoe (I doubt I'd need one though).
I'd consider an Olympus PEN too (they quasi invented the genre...) - excellent picture quality. But I'm not sure which one.
Any suggestions? Small size and price are my main demands smile


Cheers
Micha

Nikon may allow you to reuse your lenses, won't it?

Dre30October 04, 2013 07:40PM

Yes (more or less)...

The OM-D is cool, but too large and too expensive Frowning, Sad (n/t)
