Traveling to Italy, Paris and Normandy - Equipment Suggestions
11 months ago

I will be traveling to Italy (several cities), Paris and Normandy in April. I own a D70 with kit lens, 70-300 and 50 prime. Also have a Panasonic Lumix LX5. On recent travels to the Caribbean I have used the LX5 and been happy with the images and the convenience of such a small camera was terrific. Of course, there are some shooting situations for which the LX5 is not a good substitute for a DSLR. Because I expect my trip to Europe to be a once-in-a-lifetime event, I have been thinking a bit more about what camera to take.

On the one hand, I wouldn't mind having an excuse to upgrade my D70. On the other hand, will I regret having to carry a relatively large and heavy camera?

Also wondering if there is a small (e.g. four thirds) format camera that offers excellent image quality, manual mode, and interchangeable lenses.

All input appreciated.
