    Hi, I'm new here. i live in Rome.
    I strongly believe that small cameras are very serious.
    My first SLR was a Pentax MX, as far as I know it's the smallest 35 mm SLR in the world. Lenses from the M series were very small too.
    My first serious digital camera was a Olympus Camedia C-60 Zoom bought in the far 2005. I actually own a brand new Olympus XZ-1.
    I'm happy with small cameras and that's why I'm here.

    Hi Andy! I am also new to this forum (though active on sister site mu43 for some time); I also live in Rome, so Hello Neighbour! and, oddly enough, the Pentax MX was my first serious camera, oh so many years ago.

    Thank you everybody for your welcome!
    I'll post some pictures as soon as possible and, of course, I want to share opinion and information about our little jewels with you. It's so difficult to find experienced photographers trusting little cameras, that I think this site is really a precious source :)
