Take it or Leave it?

I'm planning on a trip to Ireland, and I figured I should probably have something big and camera-y to take pictures of stuff. So I picked up a Sony F828 - it's all... nifty.
And Big. And Heavy.
And the eternal synching flash. Which is also big and heavy.
So, that eats a bunch of carry-on, and it's a weighty chunk to wangle around, and suddenly I'm feeling not-so-smart.
I have a Canon Powershot A590 and a Samsung ST200 - together they weigh less than the Sony's flash, and take up about half as much space as the flash alone.
So, somebody help; is there a reason to bring the big obsolete fellow, or am I just dragging along something that one or the other little guys would handle as well, if not better? Thanks for any observations you might have!
