Wondering about folks who have done both or either? Thoughts?

No brainer......if you have a S007 take that and leave the Q at home

There is a difference between travel photography and fine art. All the quality in the world won’t help you if your gear is too cumbersome. I have done travel and safari with MF -once, never again-. A 500 mm with 2x converter on MF is not the best tool when hiking in 40 centigrade. Having said that, an S has been designed to handle like a normal DSLR If your travel is on the comfortable side and you don’t need long tele, why not?

I just come back from safari with MF and would never consider anything else......Medium Format Rocks :)

I do not own the Q, but I travel with my s2-p  often.

My lightest S travel kit:

 

-The Distagon T* 55mm f/3.5 - 525g
-The Planar T* 80mm f/2.0- 524g
-Leica S-Adapter C for Contax 645 Lenses -230g

-S2-p with the RRS plate -1300g

= 3104 g sans the bag

It will be heavier with the Leica S lenses.
