    You had me at pocket size. Now let’s see what deal I can get before I go buy.

    for travel cameras go for the "pocket size" deal
    and 'pancake' style lens

    i'm really aiming at the EM10 III with the 14-42.
    I've priced out the Sony RX100 V and it'd be almost double the price of the EM10 III kit for me. The RX100 III is more in line pricewise but I'm going to examine some sample shots to see if it's good enough.
    the A6300 kit works out the same as the RX100 V but the kit lens is kinda crap.

    So I’m getting a pricing on the EM10 iii kit.
    I’ve ruled out the Fuji XA5, Canon M6, Sony A6000, RX100 III
    FINAL answer Olympus.

    It had the smallest and most competent lens in the bunch. The RX100 series felt like too much money for a non system camera. I take lots of photos of my watch so I liked the closer focusing.

    I have a much older version of the Sony cybershot camera that I’ve had for years. Love it especially because of its size. It’s easily outgunned these days by the newer tech of the iPhones but I still use it once in a while. It’s better at night shots than my phone.

    Looks like a nice camera.
    hmmm, maybe an alternative to a D5600 for a grab/travel/tweener camera.

    I’ve got the EM10 III on the way.
    Also got the 30mm macro because it was impressive and would be a great for my product shoots.
    Just tested it and was drooling

    When I first got the 30mm macro, I was blown away by its sharpness. You’ll enjoy it!
