    I don't understand the need to leave anything at home... you can't take pictures with no camera. If you come across a great slide/color/b&W opportunity and don't have a camera loaded appropriately... well...

    I too am vacationing soon, taking a Nikon F6, F100, F3, D600, D7000, Pronea 6i, and maybe my Rolleicord. If they sit in the car or hotel, so what?
    In life you only get one great dog, one great car, and one great woman. Pet the dog. Drive the car. Make love to the woman. Don't mix them up.

    You will definitely want the medium format and tripod for Big Sur. Great scenery and bridges.

    Too many choices, too many different formats - if you're ready for every possible photo, you'll end up taking none, or at least not getting any good ones, because your head space will be on a different camera/film/format, and you won't have one at the ready when the moment passes. And it means packing three film formats- if you run out while shooting with one, you might be stuck with no additional film for that camera, so you'd have to turn around and go back to the hotel/car to get a different camera for which you still have film. Same with batteries - if they're all different, if one conks out, you can't grab a spare from the other camera and keep shooting.

    oh yes, very restrictive, and most useless... please send them my way so I can dispose of them properly

    haha, but really, maybe both nikons would be good. I always like to have a spare backup body, loaded with different film for changing light. And if you just bring Ai, or AIS lenses you can swap them around easily on both bodies. Maybe even pass the FE around to the wife a kids to have fun with(and to carry a bit of the weight hehe).
