fun question. kinda how i got into m4/3 in the first place.

1 body and 2 lenses huh?

i traveled to india with the EPL1, 14-42 and 45-200 (used). i wouldn't say it was the ideal setup. more of a budget setup. instead, i'd probably do... the EP3 with 14-150 and the 9-18. low light be damned, i'd probably be passed out by dark anyway.

'course if i could tweak the rules a bit i'd add the xz-1. portable silent-shutter street-shooter and low light extraordinaire. that'd just about do it for me.

I'd agree with you Ppygmy. I'm also just back from India and had a nex with similar lens ranges. I also came to the conclusion that I wanted something extra like a canon s95, or xz-1 or the new Sony superzoom P&S.

With longer lenses, the Nex was just a little to large for some shooting. With the WA I found I was too often wanting to change lenses at inappropriate times. Decided I wanted the smaller camera to keep in my pocket. Happy to have the Nex and a couple of lens in my backpack so I could go for it when I had a bit more time and really wanted top IQ. The weight/size of these in the backpack was fine.
