Re: Ever just take a 4/3rds system and leave the big DSLR guns at home?

Great thread. I visited Costa Rica this summer with my D7000 and 3 lenses with a D3100 body for backup. We are returning this December and this time I plan to take only my newly acquired GF1, 14mm, 20mm, and 45-200mm with an LX5 as emergency backup. The total weight of the M43 outfit is a mere 33% of the Nikon outfit.

The Nikon did and excellent job but the weight and bulk was a real minus. I figured I will give the M43 a go and see what happens. If I feel that is all I need I will take only the GF1 kit to Ecuador next summer.
