The wife and I are going on a England choir trip, where we will visit London, Oxford, Stratford upon Avon, Gloucestershire, Bath, York, etc  and will be singing in several cathedrals.

Preparing for the trip, I purchased a P7700 for my wife (arriving tomorrow), because she's beginning to catch my photo bug.

Bought the D7100 as an upgrade from my D90 less than a month ago.  But am thinking about the trip, and the idea of carrying around the D7100 with my 16-85mm, it feels like a rock. I have a BlackRapid R strap, but don't want to scream out tourista, either.

I'm beginning to wonder if i should just travel with the P7700 and leave the D7100 at home. Hate to leave it in the hotel room and worry about theft while touring around.

Anyone have similar thoughts about cameras while touring, and what did you do?

Thomas, Take it. You'll be sorry if you don't. You are visiting some very target rich locations. I got my first pay check ever, from photographs of Gloucester Cathedral I did over 35 years ago. The negatives were subsequently stolen, but that's life. Don't miss out. Off topic, you'll be blown away by the acoustics in these places. I want to a concert at Bath, truly amazing, and it cant be reproduced on cd either.

Enjoy.

They said it couldn't be done, so I encouraged my peers not to bother.
HooRoo!
