Re: Going to Italy/France with 3 years old boy - 5D3 or GX1?

I'd pickup option 1) 5D3 + 35 f/1.4L + 17-40 f/1.4L + Gitzo 1541T for the best IQ if I were you as you don't know when you will go back again.

I carried three Canon F/4 trilogy zoom lenses, 15 FE and 24 TS-E II (only used occasionally) and a similar weighted Sirui traveler tripod with 5D2 in my Italy trip last year. I have results that will satisfy me for a decade probably as I don't think any other cameras will dramatically improve IQ in those scenes than 5D2. I am not a dedicated full-time photog but basically just a travelling snapshooter with the best IQ from the gear I can bear and comfortable with.
