In 7 months time I'll be leaving for an 18 month world packing packing trip and can't decide what lenses to take. The trip is going to be a mix of everything (hiking in the Himalayas, European cities, snowboarding in Japan, SE Asia....) as will my photos.

At the moment I'm taking my EM5 with the 12-40mm and the 9mm fish eye body cap (takes up no space and is cheap).

With that mix of purposes, in my perception an ILC is just an unnecessary distraction.

Even here in Auckland I have seen one tourist wasting a whole ferry trip with selecting lenses, he did not get a single shot. I got stills and movies during the same trip on my P&S.

With hiking in the Himalayas and snowboarding on the itinerary I would look at a Tough pocket P&S.

What is an ILC?

Is it some kind of special camera or lens?

Regards.
