    The reason is weight, and also because the Stylus is automatic, and has a flash.

    I"m worried how the slides will turn out from my Olympus though.

    Respond to the poll, and give me your reasons please!

    IMHO, when you are talking about 35mm, the way you carry your gear is almost as important as how much you carry.

    If you are likely to carry other stuff as well (water, sunscreen, light jacket, a book, sandwiches...) then just make sure that you have a bag that has room for the camera stuff too.

    Or to look at it another way, if you have a good camera bag, then you have a good place to put other stuff too.

    I have a couple of experiences with long trips involving lots of walking. An Olympus OM1 and three quite small lenses fit well in a small bag, leaving room for film and non-photographic stuff too.

    hi marko

    if you are worried about the olympus and slide film
    why not run a roll of slides through it and see how it does ?

    a lot of great stuff can be done with the olympus, but
    if you WANT to bring the other camera, no reason not to bring it ..

    have fun

But if you vacation mainly TO photograph, then take the Pentax kit.

    The Pentax is certainly the one you will most likely miss NOT having.
    Yeah, sometimes you want to be part of the moment, instead of the person documenting the moment.
