Hey Everyone....

I think everyone has one of these threads at least once.... :lol:

My gear is listed in my signature below, now I only want to travel with my ThinkTank Retro 30 and not my ThinkTank StreetWalker HD for this trip, so wondering what would be the best suited combination of lenses instead of carrying them ALL along for weight and room?

What could I live without on a beach type trip and what should I definitely have with me? :cool:


Canon 5D IV | Canon 5D III | 16-35L III | 24-70L II | 85L II | 70-200LII | 300 2.8 L

17-40 for the wide, 35L for evening snaps and video & 70-200 just because you can. Throw in a speedlight with some remote triggers (so you can get yourself in some shots) and all will fit comfortably in the TT30 without looking like a total dork. Nice kit! I just took my TT30 with 60d, 8mm Rokinon, 85 1.8 and Sigma 17-50 to Mexico and it was great. Didn't use the 85mm much except on the wedding day. Would have left it home for sure if I had a 70-200! Some filters too if you got em.

On the other hand you could travel light and still get great shots in HI with just about anything!
