    Don't make your decision about the camera...it's about the lens. Specifically the focal length -- which one is right for YOU and how YOU shoot.

    No one can tell if it's a Leica or a Nikon, when they see your images. And a 50 is quite different than a 28!

    Decide on the glass, not the body.

    Congrats on the trip, it's an interesting place and the people are amazing.

    As a former/hiatus house music dj this was an easy spot for me - not to mention the a&h stickers. :-)
    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.

    So are Americans not allowed to go to Cuba?

    "So are Americans not allowed to go to Cuba?"

    Though I suspect that the question may have been a tiny bit disingenuous, I need to say that if Cuba were open to a rich, populous culture only 90 miles away then it would be very different, and many of the factors that have made it an interesting photographic destination would not have survived as long as they have. The rate of change in Cuba is pretty high anyway and the changes since I first travelled there ten years ago are enormous. You don't need to think very hard to work out that if the place were to get a huge influx of dollars that the delightful decrepitude and glimpses of days gone by that have characterised the place would be submerged very quickly. Cuba is changing very quickly. On my last visit in 2009 I could not re-take any of the nicest dozen photographs I took when I first went in 2001. Every one has either been demolished or reapainted with modern paints that look wrong. If you want to go, then go soon and hope that the US government stay p----d with Cubans for a few years yet.

    That cold war (or non-war) was a long time ago. Perhaps it's time for a rethink.

    As David pointed out, that is what's keeping it unique.
