    IPhone SE. It has made many nice
    photos for me. I also now shoot the D610,minus the grip, with the small-sized 50mm/1.8 AF Nikkor or the small 28-80 Af-D

    Typically I shoot with two bodies. From Sports, to Theatre to Street, two bodies. Sometimes I will toss a fisheye on a camera, especially when shooting theatre, then I'm shooting with three bodies.

    Typically, I do as well. But when you are out for a romantic meal with Mrs A , what camera do you take on that occasion?

    I have 2 main camera systems my DSLR kit & a MFT kit. The MFT bag tends to be the one I grab if out for a walk, though I often have to take some of the stuff like the flash gun & a manual lens out to keep the weight reasonable (it has 2 bodies & 5+ lenses in). If a light weight camera is all that's wanted I'll select for the MFT kit.

    If out for a romantic meal with my wife I don't take a camera at all. She has her phone & would want my attention to be on her without the distraction of cameras!

    I got a Fuji XT2 w 18-55 to use as a lighter walk around/vacation lens so I could leave my Nikon 7100 and heavy lenses at home unless I was on a photo specific outing/trip. Now I only use the Xt2 and have sold the 7100.

    Romantic ... none. We often have dinner at the beach, in which case, the XP2 (w/ the 35mm F/2 if I desire simple). I tend to separate "assignment shooting " from "non-assignment shooting". Assignments being pre-planned and I am prepared for that assignment. It might be shooting macros on my daily walk with the dog, or shooting Street ... they are pre-planned with the appropriate kit. Non-assignment would be walking the dog without pre-planning, or taking a camera to work ... then it would be either the iPhone or the XP2 w/ the 35mm F/2. I used to always have a "real" camera with me at nearly all times. But lately, I've backed off and let the iPhone do its job.

    D3400 + 18-55 or 35/1.8
    It is much lighter than my D7200 + 18-140
