I went to Italy 2yrs ago, Lake Garda. It was my first trip with a dslr, so, like you, i was unsure what to take. I took my 600D/T3i + 3 lenses. 10-20, 18-55 + 55-250. I got some decent shots, but 80% or so were taken @ 100mm or less. It was also a pain constantly changing lenses. On my return home, I bought a 7D + 15-85. The 15-85 with my 600D would have done the whole trip, with few missed shots. We are also going back in 6 weeks, same place, same hotel! I decided to travel light & bought an Olympus e-pl5 with 14-40 + 40-150 lenses. Half the weight & size of the dslr + lenses. Menus a bit complicated, but the picture quality is outstanding, IMO. I won't be selling my 7D, but may sell the 60D.

Travel light my friend.

I wish you good pastas and salads and very nice wine!

Enjoy your small and light Oly!

Mike, my good friend I hope you are well. Yes, only 6 weeks to go! I like a nice piece of fish too. Sue doesn't like fish, but loves seafood, prawns, crab etc. I am getting used to the little Oly, so easy to carry around. Lens changes are easier too, I find, because of that. Nice pics. Who is the sexy pouty lady at the bar? Rrrrrr!! Take care my friend.

Lee it was fun to shoot in Paris. For me the Fuji is a blessing, I hope the Oly does the same for you.

The pretty lady...je ne le sais pas, mais elle est tres pretty!
