Do you leave your A77 (or other SLT/SLR) behind when you go on holiday?

I have an A77 and a NEX-5R, both of which are upgrades from previously owned A65 and NEX-5n and both see about equal use for all the usual reasons such as bringing the NEX along when I want to be discrete and bringing the A77 when I plan to focus more or exclusively on photography. When I had the A65 and the 5N I never thought twice about taking the 5N on vacation and assumed that would still be the case with the 5R, but I've grown quite fond of the A77 and now that I have a trip to NYC coming up I'm rethinking my strategy. I have what I believe to be the right lenses (for me) for each camera so that isn't an issue.

So, throwing the question out there, do you feel comfortable leaving your best camera behind when you go on vacation?

The Fuji X-Pro1 goes with me. But I don't consider leaving the DSLR to be my best camera. Small, discreet, non-intimidating cams are absolutely fantastic. I also like taking fixed focal length lenses when I travel.

(I don't understand/know why you see a difference between the A65 and A77.)
