My wife and I recently took a tour of Jordan and Israel. I decided to bring just my RX100 II camera because of luggage weight limitations and the prospect of long hikes. Throughout our 15-day trip, I just carried my camera and a spare battery in my pocket or in my small messenger bag and took a lot of photos. I made the right decision. The photos were glorious certainly comparable to photos taken with large cameras with bigger lenses. You be the judge.
