I had a small Olympus pocket sized camera, for snapshots but it had a touchscreen which I hated and which doesn't work with gloved hands. So I traded it in for a small Leica D-Lux 7. It was a bit of a leap into the unknown as I am very familiar with Olympus cameras and like them a lot, but my fears were groundless and I love the Leica. It is really easy to use either in semi-automatic mode or manually, takes great photos and even has a small zoom lens. The photos of PLYMBRIDGE WOODS were all taken with it and turned out well despite the low autumn afternoon light. So now it is the camera I slip in my pocket if I just go for a walk, instead of carrying a camera bag. Of course I will still use my trusty Olympus E-M1 - it is a fantastic camera system!
