Default Vacation gear

I just took a week off from work and got a last minute trip to Greece. Now I can't decide what gear to bring and if I need to buy something that's missing.

I have this to choose from:
5D2
7D

24-105L
70-200/2.8L IS
Tokina 12-24
Nifty fifty
430EX

I think I'll bring my TT retrospective 10 shoulderbag. My Dakine Sequence will stay home.

So, gimmie some advice. Please.

Really depends on what you like to shoot.

When I travel I take my 24-105, 70-200, and a flash. I never feel as though I am missing something but I don't shoot super wide angle so you may as well either take the 7D and chuck it in the bag or take the 5D and leave the Tokina at home.

I'd just take the 24-105 and the 7D. Gives you the 1.6x for that extra reach on the telephoto end just in case you need it. Doesn't give you much of a wideangle, but then just do panoramas
