    Have been a long time photographer. Learned using Nikons with film, then DX, finally a full frame D700.
    Joined up with Mu43 forum when I tried a Olympus Pen about a year ago. Now, I splurged on a new Sony RX100 to carry with me all the time! Just arrived yesterday.
    I always bee a big fan of small cameras and still have an old Rollei 35S!
    Look forward to learning about exciting digital compacts from the member here.

    From Dallas here, using GRD 3 and Nokia 808
    RX100 is a mighty fine choice though
    and the 35S is a classic!
