I’ve got a 55mm. *Put your lens cap back on!*

To be seen touting a digital camera in Korea these days is a show of prestige. The digital camera has become an accessory. Something to casually sling over one shoulder, I’ve even seen people take them to the supermarket. If it’s not to take pictures of their kids while they rifle through the stock, then what? Corporate espionage for the opposition?

If it were a professional type camera body (i.e. big and heavy) then I might take more notice. Think of 1-2kg instead of 0.7kg for a sub-frame camera. Not to mention more than four times the price for the professional camera. What would impress me even more if you were able to carry it for a whole day without complaint.
