Maybe you need to ask yourself: "Am I just struggling with a bout of G.A.S.?" I know I am...

Like you, I'm headed out on a trip. Like you, I have a perfectly good larger rig with a lot of glass. Like you I also have a great small camera.

My most recent exposure to cameras started with the LX7 which was purchased for me to use at work. When the LX100 came out, I bought one for myself and find that I typically take that with me when my wife and I travel (she takes the Olympus Tough). I usually end up thinking to myself that the 70mm on the LX100 just isn't enough reach but I also end up pretty happy with the shots I end up with one they're printed.

You have both a large and small rig - you have the spectrum covered. What is it that you feel you'd gain by adding yet another into the mix?

I definitely struggle with G.A.S. Just ask my wife.

I also suffer from FOMO, more specifically fear of missing out on a once in a lifetime shot because I am either 1) not carrying a camera other than my phone or 2) not carrying a camera that is "good enough" for that shot. I know that it is unnecessary, especially as a hobbyist, but that is an issue for me.
