I shall be traveling to New Zealand soon for my daughter's wedding and a couple of weeks of touring with friends. We're staying on the North Island this time, having done the South Island on our last trip. On that trip I brought a GF-1, the 20 f/1.8, and the 14-45. I also brought my D700 and the 24-70 and 70-200, both 2.8's. I used it all and was pretty happy with the results. One photo was published in the newspaper, another has just been chosen for a juried show (both were made with the Nikon). We did not do any really strenuous hiking on that trip and may or may not on this one either. I used the Nikon for "serious" work and the Panasonic for "snaps."
I am asking for and have been getting a lot of advice on what to bring this time. I now have an Olympus OM-D. One option is to fill out the m43 lenses and get the 12-35 and 35-100 Panasonics, and leave the Nikon, now a D800E, and its heavy lenses at home. The other is to take my OM-D, the 20, the 45, the 14-45 AND the Nikon with the two zooms. It will be expensive to buy the two zooms, and somewhat duplicative of the zoom range I already own for the Nikon.
I love both systems. I suspect asking a bunch of strangers, even a group of excellent photographers, such a personal question may seem bit silly, but I am hoping for some "aha" comment that will push me toward one or the other path.
In any case, this is my conundrum, not a terrible problem in light of the worlds issues, but I will need to decide.
Thanks for any wisdom any of you can send my way.
