My wife and I are headed to Newport Beach this Sunday for a 7 day visit with my son's family, and it's the first time I don't feel an urge to lug the big rig (d700 + fast glass). With my recent buys and trades, I feel like I finally have a complete but lightweight u4/3 kit. I've got a Roki 7.5mm fisheye for reality bending wide angle, two fast midrange primes, a tele-zoom with lots of reach, and a good flash. The weak link is the dated 12MP sensor in my beautiful Oly e-p3, but I'll try to work around it by capping iso at 800.

What's your mirrorless kit, and how confident are you in it?

It depends on the destination of how much or little to take.

I have both the Panasonic GH-3 & GX-1 with all Panasonic lenses: 7-14, 12-35, 35-100, 25 1.4, and 45 2.8. I kept my 45-200 but it gets zero use now, but if I needed the long end for something specific I have it. 95% of everything can be done with the 12-35 & 35-100 and the other lenses are for speciality needs depending on the locations.

I will take a waterproof p&s for some things and if I know I want to shoot video and not worry it will be the GH-3. If not and I want to really pack small the GX-1 is still a great camera until we see what the GX-2 will have.

The GH-3 is made out by Olympus users as I read various comments as a big and bulky DSLR camera, but its not. The size is DSLR like, but the weight is really nothing, my Nikon D90 was heavier. The Panasonic GH-3 does not need the vertical grip like the OMD needs it to make it feel like a camera you can hold onto from comments I have seen.
