Actually the weight are pretty close, 52.3 oz vs 49.2 oz, 3 oz different is negligible.

I took a couple shots with both combo and show the result to my wife. She consistently says that the 5D2/24-105 results are better. She says something about more blurry background :)
I'll bring the 5D2/24-105 and the 270ex and leave the 35L at home.

Thank you everyone for your inputs.

no one will notice the red ring except you, take the 5dii and the 24-105, leave the rest at home

I voted for 5D2 + 24-105. Reasons: constant aperture, better ISO handling, weather-sealed lens and camera! :)

I voted for the 5DII/24-105 combo, but it's only downside is perimeter AF point performance in low light (in doors) without AF assist, otherwise it's images are a level above the 7D IMO.

I would vote 5DII and 24-105, and just put some electrical tape around the red ring (or all the writing, make it look more like a cheapo lens).

When in doubt there is is no doubt for me: 5dII+24-105.

pretty easy really - go with the 5d+24-105. that focal range at a constant f/4 with full frame? can't ask for a better vacation walk-around. unless you need the fps burst or complex AF, FF will shine, especially because of the type of shooting you'll likely be doing. paired with the 35L, you have a stellar set-up.

What a great position to be in having to choose between a 5D2 + 24-105 or a 7D + 15-85.
