    If you must take a 35mm, take the FE - the Rolleis are already big and heavy enough. Take the FE and no more than two primes or one zoom.

    Even though I always consider weight I would take the F4, remove the battery pack if you like. I sold my F4 to get into medium format and have regretted ever since. So my advice is jaded:^)

This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. This is not a way of life at all in any true sense.

    Keep the F4 at home, take the FE and a 35. Bring an 85 as well so you feel comfortable with yourself, but chances are it'll stay in the hotel.

    Rollei(presume it is MF) is good, if you have time and tripod to take photos. Otherwise, a good auto-exposure(OTF metering) camera will do for traveling.

    Yeah, the Rollei is very restrictive. I'm afraid as well regarded as they are, they're really a mostly useless camera.

    Take the Nikon FE along with a 35 f2 and a 105 f2.5 lens and you're covered.
