While I love my 1Ds for its amazing haptics and the handling with large and heavy lenses, I too have given up on bringing it along on vacation and usually rely on the Fuji X-System for its reduced size and weight. Plus, it easily outperforms the Canon in low light.
I get this question often — up to several times per month — from fellow photo enthusiasts, both experienced and not… about what photo gear could I recommend to them?
And the number one top recommendation I make that no one pays attention to?
The smaller the gear you can bring yourself to tolerate, the better. Go with something small enough that you will enjoy carrying it on extended photowalks, or exhausting day hikes, or keeping in your hand, over your shoulder, or around your neck for 8-12 hours at a time without physical pain.
