Can't decide on camera or lenses

I am going on vacation in June, and Can't decide whether to buy a lens I want, or buy a 645N. I have a few 35MM film cameras I still use. A 645D would be ok, but 40MP are a lot for any computer to handle. I am leaning to a logical answer, but I am not sure what that would be. Any thoughts?

Well, you could buy the 645D body, which probably costs more than your vacation. A more logical option might be the K5, but you really haven't told us anything like: where are you going? what lenses you already have? price range? etc.?

The 645 is large/bulky... and you'll be missing a lens or two in that format. For a vacation I'd go with the lens, especially if you can interchange between digital and film bodies.
