Bought the D7100 as an upgrade from my D90 less than a month ago.  But am thinking about the trip, and the idea of carrying around the D7100 with my 16-85mm, it feels like a rock.

That is the combo I would take.  In M4/3rds mode you have a 170mm lens in a pinch.  I would program that option onto one of the front buttons of your choice.  I run this switch with the button and a wheel to avoid an accidental switch.  Last time I was in London on business I regrettably had no cam of my own with me.  The best camera is the one you have with you when the shot comes up.

I have a BlackRapid R strap, but don't want to scream out tourista, either.

Anyone have similar thoughts about cameras while touring, and what did you do?
