I'm heading on a vacation for 2 months to SE Asia and am definitely bringing the 10-22 and 24-105 which will be primarily used. I'm trying to travel as light as possible.

However we're stopping for a week on the way back in Monaco for the Formula 1 race and really wanna have the 70-200 with me for the race. I don't presume I'll use the 70-200 really at all in SE Asia so it may not be worth bringing?

Also the pancake may come with me for ease of use...

Any insight and opinions would be great!!

10-22 and 70-200

There ain't nothing 23-69 you can't get just by moving your feet. You need, need, need, the 70-200 for the F1.

It all depends on what you are going to shoot while in SE Asia. For things like street candids a 70-200mm will do a great job.

When and where are you going, SE Asia is a large land mass?

Were travelling around Bali for 1 week, thailand for 3, laos for 1 and cambodia for a week then off to the F1 for a week. I'll be shooting mostly landscapes, temples and the friends were heading over with.

I'm just about to pull the trigger on a 7d for it as well.

I'm trying to really limit and cut down on what I take and at first I was going to bring the following:

Canon 7D
10-22mm (100% coming with me)
24-105mm
40mm pancake or maybe the 50mm but the pancake is just so small with what I consider to be a better focal length although the f/1.8 is nice!
70-200 mm (100% for the F1)

I'm now debating leaving the 24-105 at home as its a large lens but I need some opinions.

Thanks!

why don't you just bring the Sigma 17-70, 70-200 and pancake.

In SE Asia just carry around the 17-70 and pancake and leave the 70-200 in the room safe.

Very light.. less swapping and still good IQ.

I would do this if I had a full frame but unfortunately the 17mm is just not wide enough as I can't live without the 10-22. I guess what I need to figure out is if I'm willing to trade the 24-105 with the pancake or just take both. hmm... decisions decisions.

Buy a 15-85.. I have one and never feel the need for wider then 15.

Definitely bring the 10-22. If you do 10-22, 40mm, and 70-200, you're covered. You won't miss 22-39 and 41-70 I don't think.

Just have a thought for you. 70-200 sounds long enough for motorspot but it isn't always. Grab a TC if you can. Although I just realize you are shooting the F4 not 2.8 which makes that much harder. I have used 7D + 70-200 + 2x tc at the Toronto honda indy before and it's useful for some shots especially if you get view down a long straight.

As for asia 17-70 is likely your most useful lens for walking around. You are not going to have time to swap lens walking about. And that range is going to give you so many chances to get the shot of people and things happening about you.

Finally, consider a moisture management system. I bring along one of those plug in to purge silica gel pack when I went to asia. Every night I would put my stuff in the hotel safe (everyone of them had a large enough safe, unlike europe :P ) with the gel to dry out. It's very humid and everyone there has a moisture controlled storage unit for their camera gear.

^^ thanks for the advise. Everything has been noted. Although I agree with you on the 17-70 being the most versatile for travel there is just something about that lens that doesn't wow me. Looking through my pictures from past vacations makes me believe that my nifty fifty really does see a lot of use and the 10-22 I just can't live without as its great for landscapes (75% of this trip).

I'm going to weed it down to either the 50 or 40 and the 10-22 & 70-200. Travelling light is key.

Yeah i sold my 24-105 as i wanted a larger range, so took a 17-40 and 70-200, though on a full frame (5D)
I'd suggest just take the 10-22 and 70-200. And maaaybe the 40 or 50.
CHcech out my pics from SE asia if you want an idea of the type of shots i got, might give you some ideas (go to the "countries" drop down menu)
