I thought no watch was only for weddings (and funerals)?

Many of the pics I posted in the white tie thread were from my GM1. I think the image quality is noticably better, particularly in tough lighting conditions.
I don't mind the bulk of the camera, particularly when at an incredible venue such as the Hofburg or Staadtopera.

@EliodA , is it really the case that one shouldn't wear a watch to a wedding or a funeral? Never heard that one before.
I am not ElioA but for whatever is worth, in my country the custom is that if you wear a morning coat (is what we wear at weddings) you don't wear a wristwatch. A pocket watch yes, but not a wristwatch.
Don't know if it is the same in other places.post #34014 of 373962/7/16 at 2:42pmQuote:
Not sure about the watch either, but traveling light is the way to go. I can't stand having extras crap in my pockets and particularly phones these days are more inconvenient just to carry around… I would probably just leave it.
@Coxsackie agreed Vienna is fantastic… never lived there either, but have visited a couple times. Not sure how all that Sacher tortre would help my fitness.post #34015 of 373962/7/16 at 4:19pmQuote:Originally Posted by Coxsackie

^ I believe it's this, but I'm not sure, so that's why I was asking. As @Chulillo says, apparently a pocket watch is deemed acceptable in those situations.
@Coxsackie didn't you have Viennese ancestors?

You’d love it.
Strictly speaking I’ve never lived in Vienna, but I have several times spent a month or so in a town about 1/2 south by train while commuting into the city for research, so I've a good sense of what it's like to live as a local. It’s one of my favorite cities: clean, safe, with a well-educated and sophisticated populace, and, as Vienna’s own Karl Kraus put it, “the streets are paved with culture.”
They also tend to dress a touch more formally when they go out, which I appreciate.

My father was Czech, my mother was from Linz but grew up in Vienna. After their marriage, my parents lived in Vienna for two years, just around the time "The Third Man" was made.
For part of that time they rented an apartment in a building on Schwarzspanierstrasse, I believe no. 8, which is one of many "Beethoven houses" around Vienna. They weren't in his apartment though. I remember staying in Vienna with my parents for a week or so one winter. I was ten. We went to a little basement restaurant/bar at which Anton Karas - the zither player on "The Third Man" - was playing. We also attended operas at the Staatsoper. All a bit heavy for a little boy.
My father maintained a lifelong interest in Viennese culture, founding the Australian branch of the Robert Stolz Music Society (Stolz was famed as the "last great Viennese waltz king").
I've been back a few times since, but unfortunately the last time was already over twenty years ago. I really can't think of anywhere in the world I'd rather live. (Although Melbourne's not at all bad!)post #34018 of 373962/7/16 at 6:20pmQuote:
Looks to be a great camera, having copied the large sensor in compact body idea from Sony.
We switched from MkI to MkIV, and it's night and day.
Comparison between LX100 and RX100, pretty much a dead race, yellow is where the LX is better, grey for RX. Ergonomics are a bit of a pain with the RX, no doubt, and it's pretty dear.Quote:

I remember those times well.
