If you can afford it, then why the hell not?

Vacations are some of the best opportunities to take pictures of sights that you don't encounter everyday. I don't understand the comments saying that the camera is "too good" for vacations - are you not allowed to have good picture quality just because you're on holiday?

IMO the bottom line is whether or not the size and weight will interfere with your enjoyment. Some examples.

good for:
sightseeing cruise in the Bahamas
Visiting the vatican
Museums etc

Bad for:
Disney land when you want to go on all the rides with your kids.
Hiking up kilimanjaro (unless you're super fit)
Cycling holiday

well you get the idea.
