I'd rather not hump a lot of heavy gear about.
"Us travelers" prefer to travel light and absorb the environment than have to deal with a ton of kit.
Been there, done that, and after traveling around India 5 times, I prefer the Fuji approach, no offense
Each to their own, but my Canon gear is NOT superior to my Fuji gear in any respect. The images produced are softer and dreamier. This is fine for portraits and Weddings, but I prefer sharpness over bokeh any day, that's my preference.
I keep my Canon gear for taking fast action pictures of my daughter running around, but for anything serious, I use the Fuji.
Here is a quote from a fellow travel photographer:
"Overall, the IQ is as good as any of my full frame DSLR’s and in some ways (especially with regard to colour rendition), I prefer the IQ of the X-E1 (and X-Pro1). That is saying a lot as I shoot with some of the best DSLRs available."
and he shoots both Canon and Nikon, including a D800.http://roel.me

I'm looking forward to getting my hands on the X100s and the X-Pro2...
