Hello everyone,
I am planning a trip to Japan this coming September,
since there are going to be a lot of walking around so my goal is to keep my gear light,
may i ask for opinion that if i should bring my current own 5dc with 40mm pancake lens & 50mm 1.8
or should i save up more and purchase a x100t?

Thanks everyone!
Stanley

Everyone will have a different opinion on this, but I would want to travel light. I'd get the X100 (any of them honestly) or some other mirrorless camera with a decent prime.

Fuji, definitely. The 5D is going to limit your ISO capabilities severely.

X-100S or X-100T. Either one will serve you well for traveling light.

What about an X Pro1, really cheap these days with a twin lens kit.

If I was in your shoes I'll sell my 5Dc and buy a 6D.

I would also consider a Sony a7, the original one. It'll give you WiFi, a full frame sensor, EVF, smaller size and you can use all your current lenses on it.

Small, ISO performance and you already have Canon lens.

If you have both already. I would go with the x100. The 40 or 50 lenses aren't much different than the 35mm equivalent on the x. By using the 5dc you lose size/ weight ISO and dynamic range. You gain a slightly longer lens. I think the chips are stacked in this one.

I wouldn't call the 6D "small". I sold mine specifically because it was too large. Also, he could use his Canon lenses on an a7... just sayin' ;)

If it were me, i would take the X100T and both converters (wide - 28mm and tele - 50mm)

Should all fit in a bag/vest/pocket plus with the wifi you can use an ipad/iphone to process and post your pics.

David hobby (strobist) recently posted about his travel kit - he is using a western digital HDD with built in SD slot to backup his pics on the road.
I am on my phone at the moment, but will find a link when i get to a proper computer
