K5 or Lumix FZ30 to Italy?
Oct 26, 2011

Hi All, I love my new K5! I'm planning a trip to Italy in November, and I'm struggling with which camera I should bring. If I bring my K5 I will need to buy a walk around lens. I was thinking of the Pentax 18-135. That will set me back another $429.00. Now I was looking at some the past photo's I shot with my Lumix FZ30 recently, and I'm really considering taking this camera instead. It has a fantastic Leica lens. 12-1 zoom! The camera takes very decent shots in my hands, weights less than my K5, handles highlights, and shadows very well for a point and shoot, and there would never be a need to change lenses. I'm bringing a tripod anyway, so low light really won't be an issue. I am also a bit worried about traveling with my K5. If anything happened to it, it would totally ruin my trip! Really want your take on this. I have attached some sample I took with my Lumix FZ30.
