How many mainly lenses do you usually carry when you go out to shoot?

Typical work day.

24-70 on a full frame
70-200 2.8 on a crop
300 2.8 or 100-400 on a crop.

Just fooling around--100 macro or the trusty G9

For a walk-around, it's usually 24-105 on a 5D. If I take a bag with me, I'll throw in the 50 f/1.4 and the 135 f/2, plus the 1.4 ext.


All I want is just a little more than I'll ever have.

If I'm doing landscape, I bring my 17-40 and 70-200. Portraits then 85L, 70-200. Walkaround 24-70 or 35L depending where I'm going.

For walkaround I usually carry just 1 lens. For portraits I carry 2 primes in my bag. For events/weddings I usually bring 3-4 lenses (depending on the event)

I normally just grab my backpack with everything in my sig except the 300mm and the 70-200 f/4L. If I go hiking then I slim down to the 5D2, 17-40L and 100L. That way I get space in my pack for food and water and I get to drop some extra weight I know I wont use. There's never much wildlife/reason for me to have the longer lenses and the 5D is my landscape body.


5D4 | 8-15L | 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS | 24L II | 40mm pancake | 100L IS | 70-200mm f/2.8L IS mk2 | 400mm f/4 DO IS

24-105 f4 L and 70-200 f4 L seem to be my most used at the moment but I'd normally take my whole bag with me and it's got everything in it just in case.

Great combo.

I will take 3 or 4 lenses with me to give different focal lengths unless I know the subject (wildlife) will be distant then like today I just take my 500mm and an extender.

I comparatively carry too many lenses.

It seems that most were carrying around two lenses, and that also seems to be about the average carried.

No, I probably wont change that. It is what I seem to need (want?). It was interesting to see what other people carried.

Thanks to everyone that responded!


Thanks for Reading & Good Luck - Jim

Usually my 28-75/2.8 and my 70-200f/4L... will bring the 50/1.8 if I know I'll need the extra aperture.

Usually TS-E 17L, 24L II, 50L, 85L II, 135L, Extender 1.4X II, extension tubes, Kenko DGPro 1.4X converter :D.

Just walkaround, no bag, 50L and 135L most of the time.

The 50L is mounted to the 5D II by default.

Kind regards, Wim

My bag is reduced to

Sigma 17-50 f/2.8 OS
Canon 50mm f/1.4

When I know that I will be needing telephoto I will grab either the 55-250 when I know that all shots will be well lit or Sigma 70-200 f/2.8 OS

Usually only one, the 100-400. I do a lot of walk around photography, and the 100-400 is quite enough to carry around.


Canon 7d 100-400 mm zoom.

It depends very on much I want to carry.

When I go on a photo trip with the big backpack there could be ~15 lenses inside :-)
But these lenses are not as big as normal AF lenses.

For example I could take two Helios 44 58mm/2.0 lenses with me, one normal, and the other with apodisation filter inside. And two 28/2.8 lens with and without apodisation filter too.
Zeiss 18/4(C/Y), Zeiss 25/2.8 (C/Y), Canon FD 24/1.4L, Minolta Rokkor 58/1.2, Canon Fd 85/1.2L, Meyer Trioplan 100/2.8, Kiron 105/2.8 and Vivitar CF 135/2.8.
Bellows with Novoflex 60/4 + 105/4 + 200/4 heads + Rodenstock Apo Rodagon 50/2.8.

But this is very much weight.
At the moment I am on Christmas visit, and because of the two childs and travelling with train restricted gear weight:
EOS 5D, Rokkor 58/1.2, Canon 24/1.4L, Zeiss 18/4, Vivitar 135/2.8 CF, Zeiss 25/2.8, Helios 44 with apodisation filter.

For normal everyday way to work I have two or three lenses with me - some of the mentioned above.
