Hello all.  I'm going on a vacation to London this summer, and I'm worried about taking my D800e with 24-70 kit because of the chance that it will get stolen.  Am I too worried?  Should I leave it home and take a lesser kit (d90 with 24-200 VR, or gasp! a point and shooter?).  I'd leave it around my neck at all times if I took the d800e, and have it insured, but it will stick out like a massive temptation to pick pockets.  I've heard stories of thieves unlatching the lenses, etc.  Opinions?

Thanks,

Steve

Just got back from a tour through France (which is becoming the pickpocket hall of shame from what I heard) yesterday but I never had a problem and would have been really sorry if I had left my D800 at home.  I traveled with a Billingham Hadley Pro and had in it my D800 w/24-120mm, my OMD with an assortment of lenses, my Nikon SB800 and the bag never left my side, and I mean never ever and I had no problems at all.  I made sure to never let anyone, and I mean anyone, ever look out for my bag except me.
