At least i’m consistent. This year I took the EM1 II, the 12-32, the 35-100, and the 20.The kit I take for a place like Disney is the EM5 II, 12-32, the small 35-100, and a fast primes like the 17 and the 60 macro. It weighs very little, and I only carry parts of it around. The two small Panasonic zooms and the EM5 II are my typical walk around.
For a city, the X70 recently proved to be an excellent urban shooter in DC.
I considered the Sonys, but I have used them and find them fiddly. Very nice cameras, but I don't enjoy using them. I will sacrifice a little there and there for something that gives me joy to use. Since the D lux 7 I ordered had pre-release firmware, I returned it and may well get the Leica typ 113. I loved my X1. No zoom, but that can be liberating. It is a little bigger than I was thinking, but I know I would use it.My new (used) Sony RX100M3. It's been on my belt loop as an Every Day Carry in a Sony case. No complaints so far.

My travel setup these days is my Ricoh GR and my Sigma DP2M, I don't miss carrying around more stuff or switching lenses.
Sounds sensible to me, Larry.Reviving this thread, but I cannot find a more likely place to mull over kit for an upcoming trip. I'll be in Laos for 8 weeks that include an excursion south to a very interesting and important Khmer ruin, Wat Phu, a couple of weeks in Phonsavan, where I'm apt to go to a bull fight ( the bulls fight each other not a matador; the purpose is to get one bull to run away), and then 3 weeks in Luang Prabang where Lao New Year will take place April 14-16. The latter is a water festival, so I need a weather resistant kit. I just bought and Olympus 14-150 f4-5.6 II to use with the E-M5 for water resistance. I'll probably do most of my outdoor shooting with it. I'll have the Leica X113 and maybe the Ollie 45 f1.8 for a little reach for low light situations. That may be itj unless I throw in the Leica D-lux 109 instead of the 45 and x113. It will depend on how I can get my carry-on pack to weight less than 15 lbs, the limit EVA Airways sets for carry-on. Though I'll have a "personal item" to cheat a bit, I'll be carrying extra electronics as gifts. There will be architectural details at Wat Phu that I will want the reach of the 14-150 for, but I could see doing a lot of the shooting there with the 45mm and the Leica X, a 90 and a 35mm equivalent. The 14-150 doesn't do too badly. It's been too nasty out to go test well, but here are a series of shots I took the day it arrived:

It should be alright as my standard lens for the trip. But I'm usually planning and changing my mind while I pack. I'd love to take the Sony a7ii and a bunch of manual focus lenses, but it would get too heavy, an if I didn't need weather sealing I'd take my favored Pen-F instead of the E-M5, which I got in 2012.
