It's Good Enough

When my wife and I went to Scotland in 2002, I took a Canon G2. There were times I wish I had a big DSLR and tons of lenses, but the light footprint was worth the tradeoff.

We're planning another overseas trip for next year. I think a G11 will come with us and my DSLR and lenses will stay at home. I'd love to take an M9, but that won't happen. Taking a 5D MKII is tempting, but we love to travel light and try as I might, I can't envision taking less than four lenses (16-35, 24-70, 70-200 & 135 f2). Since I don't own a 5D and those lenses, I can buy a G11 and pay for the trip with what my 5D dream kit would cost and still have money left over.
