Just got back from Europe personally. I really regretted not having a 70-200.

Actually I've changed my mind and will bring the 70-200 IS II now.
Reason is quite funny. My current camera bag is a shoulder bag as below

It quickly tires me if I walk for an extended time carrying many gears with this bag. The weight distribution isn't good and not comfortable.

I'm gonna get this backpack : Lowepro flipside 400 AW.

It's more comfortable than a shoulder bag and I will bring my beloved 70-200 IS II. I guess I love to shoot with that lens so much that I just have to figure out a way to bring it with me :D

It'll probably be reasonably comfortable to carry around if you have a Black Rapid strap as well.

Great tip! I'm certainly interested. Thanks a lot! :D

The way the guy in the video pulls out his camera and shoots reminds of a 007 movie trailer :D :D :D
